Default Center Stand for 2013 CCT

Tried to get a center stand for my CCT. It's in the catalog, but apparently, Victory doesn't sell them any more. According to my dealer, not many were made and were probably discontinued before the catalog even came out. They checked Ebay and all other dealers to see if they had one in stock. No such luck. I'm wondering if there was a defect of some sort that was discovered soon enough to stop production. Just speculation. Does anybody have the Victory Center stand installed? If so, where did you get it? Moving to a new house with just 2 garages, so I need the extra room to "stand up" my scooter. Any help would be appreiated. My dealer went the extra mile to try to find one for me, but no luck. HELP!!!

I never had a center stand on either of my Cross Countries but from what I've read on a couple of forums is that the Victory center stand is not very stable and hits on when you lay I through sharp turns. Just what I've heard.

I opted for a dolly so I could get mine close to the garage wall. Once you get used to getting the bike up on it, it's great.

Search the internet for the best price... works for me.

I had the issue of only a two car garage with 2 cars and the bike. I solved it by using a wheel chock mounted to a piece of ply wood. Bike stands straight up in between the two cars. My wife and I have access to the cars or bike at any time.

Hope you find the right solution for your bike.

Pass on the centerstand. It will greatly limit lean angle and will not lift either tire off the ground. Totally useless POS. I tried it and a couple welds broke causing bike to fall over. Nothing good about it.

A couple of welds broke? I'd like to see pictures of that. I really question that statement. Who made your center stand? Timmy down the street? I've never seen a stand that didn't raise the rear wheel off the ground. Really? I call bullshit.

Whoa, take a deep breath...

I owned a Suzuki Burgman 650 for five years, and broken OEM centerstands -- welds and non-welds -- were certainly not unheard of on that bike. While many consider this "just a scooter," note that it weighs about 610 lbs. (heavier than most regular "standard" or "naked" bikes), has a frame-mounted (just like a "real" bike, i.e., not on the swingarm) parallel twin (638cc, DOHC, eight-valve), and a real top speed of about 102 MPH.

If you go to http://burgmanusa.com/bkb/650+Centerstand-Sidestand , you'll see a list of BurgmanUSA forum threads that discuss -- many with pics -- this problem. In '08 or '09, I believe it was, Suzuki beefed up the centerstand with additional welded brackets.

Incidentally, until I owned the Big Burger I had never seen a bike with electrically-folding mirror housings, either. Doesn't mean they didn't exist -- if you live long enough, you'll see everything.

Cheers,

Bill P.

I was just looking for something I could use to give myself more room (2 car garage). Thought getting a center stand would allow me to get it out of the way a little better and give me more room. i like what Ronbou sent (Haul Master Harbor fright motorcycle dolly). that might work for me. Thanks Ronbou!

I have the WitchDoctor center stand on my Cross Country and it does "not" lift the wheel off the ground. The litature that came with it said it was a "ride off" stand and it is used to stablize the bike at four points when parked - both wheels and the two legs of the center stand.
