Yeah, Jxvak, that's a pretty cool and simple add-on (and trick). I looked into one of those or even improvising the same sort of thing with a piece of steel or PVC tubing or even a block of wood for my bike. I too, wasn't a fan of the additional weight the center stand would add, etc.

But in the end, I just bit the bullet and put the OEM stand on. For me it had to do with longer term storage and I couldn't see that solution being very stable for days or weeks on end.

The center stand is incredibly convenient. And it isn't quite as bulky as I'd imagined; hardly noticeable, really.

But you're showing a very cool idea and a quick solution to get the either wheel off the ground for simple maintenance.

Do you find the bike pretty stable with it in the rear position?

Thanks, Gary

The bikes really stable with the rear up by locking the front brake with a piece of velcro so it doesn't roll forward.


The bags on the crashbars are Tusk fender pouches with spare tubes in each side and some misc. tools

I have one and use it for emergencies on my AT (I bring it along on long trips). I would not consider it a true alternative to the center stand but also good for oiling the chain. It is very well made but the weight of AT is pushing this to its limits.
