Hi folks, I just bought a 2001 SV 650 standard with an Akropavic (sp) full exhaust. I also just ordered an SW Motech Centerstand for the bike. A mechanic that is giving the carbs a once over for me is concerned that the centerstand wont fit with the exhaust system in place. Anyone have experience with this combination?

Thanks,

John

I say ditch the centerstand and save the weight, then buy a rearstand.
I'm sure someone that has the correct answer will chime in

Most aftermarket systems pretty much follow the same routing as the stock system so there is a good chance they will work together...I won't guarantee it though

The weight is really not an issue, the stability in parking is, and where this bike will be living, I really dont have room to store a rear stand. So the attached centerstand that goes where the bike goes makes way more sense in this application, assuming it will not conflict with the exhaust... Thanks
