Gen2 650 Centerstand Center Stand

Moved into a old garage and space is tight with 2 bikes + car + tools. I'd love a center stand, but have a hard time justifying $250-300 for it new online.

Anybody getting rid of theirs?

2011 (Second-Gen) Versys
Urban commuting in St. Louis City. I used to rip 70-miles/day on the Ohio interstate. These days, my Versys doesn't remember the last time it used 5th gear.

For the price, I would go with a cheap pit stand.



I extended this stand because my bike is lowered and the fender interfered with the handle. I use this primarily to lube the chain while at home, and can move the bike while up on the stand as there are wheels mounted, you could add a third wheel at the handle to raise is 1/4 inch then put a piece of 3/8 plywood under when you don't want it to move.

I did bite the bullet and buy one of SW Motech's centerstands for my '15 650LT. Nearly $300 if I recall correctly. They really do make working on the bike and changing tires much easier. Won't help you now but may have the centerstand available later this year. Thinking seriously about a new KTM 790R.
