I'm sure that would affect it. Just got the Honda unit and it came with 2 springs. Haven't installed it yet ...I'll report back after some speed bumps.

My Honda one has 2 springs and never bounced.

Do find it a little bit hard to get him on the center stand.

Got mine installed. Checked tension with one spring before I got the second one installed....
big difference in tension. I could see where it would bounce with just one spring installed.
BTW the second spring is fun to install.

There are a couple of hump back bridges in my locality. They are short sharp little bridges over small streams that will easily launch a bike if one desires. Because I know them so well I frequently get a little air over them. Even the landing after that does not get the centrestand to leave its stop. The bike has bottomed out on its suspension several times on dips but again the "dreaded centre stand bounce" does not occur. Afaik only one person on here (perhaps two ? ) have had a problem with the centrestand. It could be "single spring syndrome" or simply a weak spring. Imho that does not constitute a "problem" and is easily fixed. Imho, price is therefore the only consideration.

Someone has posted that the Honda center stand bounces because the springs are not strong enough?


Thanks all!
yes - the centre stand can bounce - mine did over just easy speed ramps without either wheel even leaving the ground it scraped along the road !

when it went for first service I got the boys at Honda Al Futaim to adjust it and now it fine so i guess it just a setting

There are no settings...They probably put on the second spring.

I have a SW Motech center stand and it bounces. It also has two springs. I added a rubber strap and mounted it where the footpeg bracket used to be.

Any physical differences or other reason to choose the SW Motech over the Honda centre stand? I've just ordered an AT...
What about the weight, shape, ergonomics, price etc. Is one stand clearly the better choice? Or is the SW Mototech an exact copy of the Honda one?
I'd like something other than the 'bounce' discussion that has collected most posts.
