This machine came without a center stand. I have always valued a center stand, And it is particularly important want to do a sport machine where you are likely to be changing tires or making other maintenance and repairs trailside or roadside.however, this bike is something of a mystery. The Sertao is taller than the normal G650GS, and has a unique center stand. This particular Sertao has a 1 inch lowering link by Kouba. This makes the regular center stand too tall for use, and in danger of touching down and reducing cornering clearance.

What to do? Well, after some measurements and experimentation, it turns out that the regular G650GS center stand is almost just right for this application. It is a little low, and acts more like a ride-off stand, but I am planning to get that remedied with a little welding.
