Default WD Centerstand

Thinking about getting the centerstand from WD. Has anyone here done this? Will it get the back wheel off the ground? Thanks in advance!

I've looked at one but just can't justify it myself. I do believe that if adjusted correctly it does bring the rear wheel up off the ground but it's also heavy and appears to provide a good reduction in ground clearance during hard cornering.


For many years on my Electra-Glide I had a police ride-off stand. If only Victory or Witch Doctors would design one for the CC I'd snatch it up in a heart beat.

I ordered my XR with the Victory center stand and returned it in just days after getting the bike. It hangs down and severely limits lean angle. When deployed, it hardly lifted the either wheel off the ground. Calling it a POS is being too kind. I can't imagine WD's being much better. I have been riding over 62 years and my XR is my first bike w/o a center stand and I got used to it and so can you. A lift gets it off the ground when you really need to.

I have the WD stand on my XCT. It does not lift the bike off the ground. It is considered a "drive off" stand and used as a 4 point stand. It does scrape on the left side every once in a while due to the long extension on it for lowering it. Sometimes it needs a little help being placed in the full up position. Not the best center stand I have had on a bike.

It is great for standing the bike straight up for cleaning or maintenance. I don't use it as the main stand for the bike - the side stand is used.

If you want your bike to be more vertical, place a 6" long (or more) piece of 2X4 under the sidestand. Keep the bars at center to left, cuz the bike gets tipsy when the bars are to the right.
