center stand

I'm looking for advice on the best center stand option.


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


Thanks all!

i have an original center stand on my bike also, but never noticed bounce back with it - my problem is; it is really hard to reach it, i always hurt my tibia bone

I also have the Honda Centre stand. I ride very rough back roads and some offroad. To date there is not a hint of the stand moving off its stop.

I have seen two AT's so far with only one spring fitted! perhaps its because of that?

Hey there,

I have moved this thread to a more suitable section on the site.
The section you originally posted in is meant for more site related issues.

I hope you found the answers you were looking for.

Enjoy the forum.

Richard.

Does anyone out there have experience with aftermarket center stands?


I would find the bouncing Honda stand quite irritating.
