Default OEM Center Stand question for CR / CC

Hi,
I searched but couldn't find an answer. I am ordering the OEM center stand with my CR. I am wondering if it lifts the back tire off the ground? Reason I am asking is that I would like to get a Park-n-move so I can easily move it around my small garage, but I am not sure if it would lift the rear tire enough to make it movable. Anyone know? Thanks!

Never seen one on a CR but if it works like any other center it should left the rear a little at least for a minute until it settles down on the stand.

Hopefully someone knows....

I just installed the center stand. For the record its the easiest I have ever used. You just balance the bike and step on the arm and the bike just pops right on it, for a 700+ lbs bike super.

But to answer your question no the rear tire does not lift. According to the instuctions to lift the tire a 3/4" piece of wood is needed. I haven't tried it yet.
I think you could add the wood to the Park and Move.

Thanks very much, that information was huge. The bike show is here in Chicago and now I know I can pick one up and use it with slight modification. Thanks!

I ordered a centerstand with my CR and it was a piece of crap, to put it gently. First thing I noticed was it didn't lift the rear tire -- what good is that I ask? That'll make parking the bike with the stand on uneven ground a big problem, and it was. Next, I found it inhibited lean angle dramatically. When I removed it to return it to the dealer, the leg ends were ground down. Before I removed it, I set the bike up on it and the bike started to tip over...a weld had broken and a leg was folding! The dealer gave me my money back and said they'll send it back to the factory with my comments.

Now I use a lift for servicing my bike in the garage and have succumed to being satisfied with using the side stand when away from home. Incidentally, a piece of 2X4 under the side stand sets up the bike at almost verticle, but not enough to make it tippy.

Ricz, thanks for the info. None of what you describe sounds worth it. I just sent the dealer an email asking him not to put it on and to change it with the bag guards instead. Taking delivery on the 26th if all goes as planned.

I have scaped my stand a few times since install but have yet to use it on uneven ground. I just instaled it in Januaryand have ridden about 50miles or so. I was waiting till spring and a few more miles until final opinion on ground clearance. If what you say is true and it is only a garage stand then I will most likely remove mine. That doesn't change the fact that it is easy to use, probably because it doesn't lift the tire. My idea for use was garage storage and to clean and to use to load the bike in parking lot situation. I was hoping to test it soon on a few of my favorite twisty roads when I get a few days with sun and at least 40*. As soon as I do I will post a report on my experiance.

Bryman I am glad you got a user with more experiance with the stand than me in time to make your decision. This might be a better garage stand for you from the same people you were talking about http://www.cyclesolutions.net/produc...LS-PNM-CRUISER it has a lift built in.

Thanks for your response. In regards to the Park-N-Move with the built-in center stand, I saw one demonstrated at last year's bike show. The concept is great and it works. However, what I don't like is that the part that lifts the bike is metal on your metal frame/engine. Not worth the scratches/gouges on the part of your bike most likely to rust. They need to cover the lift bar with some type of rubber or plastic. Then, I'd consider it.

BigRedXerII and anybody else with that center stand...DON'T, I repeat DON'T go diving hard into a turn. That stand will touch down and act as a pry bar, lifting one of the wheels. It won't be a pretty picture. BTW, Victory doesn't make that stand, they get it from a source in Canada. Unless what they are selling today is a redesign of what I got 11 months ago, avoid it like a plague.

I purchased a aftermarket center stand from a manufacture in Wyoming. [email protected]. The bottom legs are adjustable (threaded). I have never had any problem with clearance in a corner. If I am loaded heavy two up and allot of luggage on the bike I will put the air in the rear shock up to 55 lbs. I have not adjusted the stand high enough to lift the rear tire off the ground, but If I am on a long trip I carry some small plywood blocks so if needed I can tip the bike from side to side and install the plywood shims under the legs. That will raise the rear tire off the ground enough to service or remove the rear tire if needed. The cost for the stand was $285.00. That was April of 2010.
