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.
