Welcome Victory Forums.

A couple of pointers. Please take the time to read the “Sticky” threads in the “Victory Forums Rules and New Members Introductions” forum. This will help you out a LOT with the Victory Forums.

The Search feature is your friend! You will find the answers to a lot of your questions by using it.

If you are asking questions that are of a technical/mechanical/electrical/performance nature, please place them in the “Victory Tech and Performance” forum. This will speed up a response. Placing them in the model specific forum can delay a response.

Default center stand

victory sells a bolt on center stand for the xc however my dealer tells me it will cut down on your lean angle - he wasn't sure how much it would cut down on the lean angle. I have decided to wait till someone on this forum installs one and has a report on the install, ease of use etc etc etc..... let us know!

I ordered the Vic centerstand when I spec'd my XR. What a POS! It doesn't lift the bike, just touches down so you have a 4 point landing. And you had better be on very level ground. It reduced the lean angle dramatically - I was grinding off the legs. Removed it and returned it to my dealer who gave me a full refund. In 59 years of riding I never had a bike without a centerstand, until my XR. I got used to the concept. Bought a lift for maintenance work. If you are going to do the same, search that thread and see my post where I show photos of a simple adapter I made that has the bike rock solid on the lift with no tie downs required.

Default 2011 XC centerstand

I also bought the Victory centerstand. It only touches down when I forget to add air in the suspension and am riding 2up in an aggressive left hand lean and hit eneven pavement. With the proper air in the rear end, I have not had any problems. It comes in really handy in the garage and when filling up. other than that, I use the side stand when parking on unlevel ground. As stated in previous post...it only gives you a four point landing, and does not really lift the rear wheel off the tarmac. I have yet to find an aftermarket alternative.
