No centerstand for a Victory is worth the money. They are all a bad joke. Mine was even dangerous.

It will not lift the wheels off the floor, but worse yet, Your cornering angle will be limited if you install it. In 62 years if riding my XR is my first bike w/o a centerstand, so I ordered one when I ordered the bike. What a big mistake that was. It was off and back to the dealer for a refund in 2 days. When I need to work on 'er, she goes up on a lift. Lots mo bettah, brah!

I don't think it's changes the lean angle since it does not hang as low as the stock exhaust. It is not designed to pull the rear wheel up but rather to keep the bike erect when air ride is dropped.

Just be vewy, vewy careful with turns--the foot tang has the stand way too low, it won't allow the stand to tuck up and away. I was dragging the stand's foot pads to the point where they were ground down significantly in only 2 days. I wish you had posted an inquiry before you ordered. This has been discussed before with the same input as I'm giving you.

Can you supply a link to what you ordered? I'm having no luck. I don't know whose stand this one is, but note how the foot tang hits the pipes and prevents the stand from tucking up.

Have you seen photos of it mounted and in the up position? If so, does it hang down below pipe level?

If this is the one you got, read the note to the right of the thumbnails. Do you have that exhaust and air ride kit?
