centre stand or paddock stand?

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by simon varley, Nov 4, 2008.

  1. given that >90% of my riding is day trips and I'm back at the garage overnight, what advantages to I really get from a $400 centre stand, against a $200 paddock stand?

  2. I don't know what sort of centre stand your referring to, but I went with the Kaneg rear stand and front stem stands and im very happy.
  3. I fitted a centrestand to my CB1300 and it's invaluable for the way I use and maintain my bike. But what sort of stand costs $400? I thought I'd been stung at $250.
  4. Vstrom dealer fit centre stand is quoted at $400. I guess I can get it cheaper, or get an after market one but it still seems a lot of money when I can get the same function from a paddock stand for a lot less money (at least when the bike's at home)
  5. Cool. You have answered your own question then.
  6. I guess so. it seemed so straight forward that I thought I must be missing something
