    I am really reluctant to purchase other than OEM stuff, but I pulled the trigger on this.

    Installation was simple.  Get some locktite for the screws, even though instructions make no mention of it.

    It does not interfere with the OEM side-stand, balances perfectly with only about 20 lbs of weight on the front tire.  Seems pretty solid with steel construction.

    I was able to get the double spring to set with only a screwdriver,   The hardest part was getting the rubber grommet into the exhaust.  I just jammed it in with a small screwdriver.  Ill take pics if anyone wants, but it is rather unobtrusive.  I can now maintain the chain easier, and check the oil

    I've fitted one of these a year ago and it's worked well for me. Just had to treat it for minor rusting but be aware my bike lives outside most of the time.
