centerstand

have any aussie klr owners tried a centerstand .i thought it would be good for maintenance.i like the look of the dualstar one and with the exchange rate at the moment its cheaper to get it from the states.does any one have an email address for dualstar so i can see if they have one for an 08 ,not in their catalogue.i have only done 1000kays so far,but it handles the dirt roads in central queensland well cheers charlie

I don't believe Dual Star has email, only phone.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

got a centrestand from klr650.com and it is great. easier to load up and do general maintenance and shit.

got a few other things at the same time to take the pain away from the freight cost.

but then it is still cheaper to buy in US and send it over than it is to buy in Oz.

Home Made Centre Stand

Gooday, not sure about buying a stand, wanted to, but decided the cost was a bit much! Instead, I got a centre stand off a BMW R100GS, cut it, changed it a little, then made it fit with 2 brackets on the footpeg bolts. Works a treat and only cost $50 and 4 hours in the shed on a rainy day! Lifts the back wheel about 50mm.
