Actually, I just spoke with the folks over at Dual Star again and he told me that they are adding a lever to the new production of stands. After reading a number of the threads over at ADVrider about the stands, it seems to be one of those additions that people really like or that they have no use for. The gentleman over at Dual Star was pointing out that they are the originator of the centerstand for the KLR and that their design is constantly being knocked off by companies having them manufactured in China and that because of this there is alot of inferior product out on the market. He said that as a family run company they won't compromise the quality of their product and are making refinements and improvements to it as they identify problems. Right now the problem, evidently, is keeping production in pace with demand.....
I want the stand primarily because my garage is so small that it makes it much easier to maneuver around the 4 bikes if they are all up on their centerstands. Since their aren't alot of opportunities for me to do alot of offroad I probably won't be that bothered by the loss of clearance. Time will tell I guess. If it sucks, there's always EBAY.
