    Centre Stand

    Others may have a different story but my centre stand is on back order.
    The V2 centre stand does have a different part no. from the 950 but can it really be that different ?

    I hate that nobody can say they tried to fit one for a 950 to the V2.

    There is stock of 950 centre stands. Why would they be different ???

    Visibily they look identical
    2022:


    2017:


    I'd probably just buy the 950 stand if it was me.
    They might have changed the type of metal maybe? But if it worked on the 950 it should work on the V2.

    They look the same, indeed.
    Since the V2 is basically an 950S upgrade with a lot of parts like frame, fork, engine and so on, unchanged, it's safe to assume that the centrestand is unchanged as well.
    But it's a 'new' model so they need to change the part numbers as well.
    I see the same in my line of work.
    I guess it's Italian efficiency.
    Het kan altijd platter...

    And to top it off here's a "how to".




    As ever it's a five minute job but again, as ever, it will take half an hour.
    I checked that the threaded hole, for item 11 the pin for the springs, exists on the V2 as well at the pivot holes.

    In further evidence the Part number for the two items has the same digits but the 950 has a suffix A and the V2 a suffix AA.

    Perhaps it had a previous existence without the suffix A !!

    Different supplier for the stand item itself perhaps ??

    Ian_H,
    Can you identify if the side stands have the same Part Number ?

    (As opposed to the item number on the drawings).

    I did the perhaps obvious thing and asked the Service manager at my "local" dealer for a fuller explanation than I had previously been given.
    The reply -
    "We tried fitting a 950 stand to the v2 and it ended up by the smallest of margins not fitting as the side stand was just (by 2-3mm) hitting the centre stand when folding away meaning that the side stand always needs to be down to use the centre stand.".

    Secondly he was kind enough to give me the parts breakdown. Clearly some parts are common but the stand itself is not..

    FYI - you can see the parts manuals online. As mentioned - it shows the different part number for stand and side stand.
    I'm presuming you could use the OLD side stand and centre stand together on a V2S ? It's the combination of old and new that doesn't work. But that would make it even more costly to replace both.

    My V2, Centre Stand arrived at the dealer a week or so ago and was fitted today.
    The Tech. said --- "because you have a Bigfoot on the side stand, the centre stand doesn't clear it, therefore the side stand needs to be out to let the centre stand down".

    It was peeing wet today so my garage floor got wet.
    Centre stand down, great.
    When I tried to push the bike off the centre stand it slid across the floor for a couple of feet before the centre stand grabbed "something " and swung up.

    Mmmmm.
