Well, I took the pluge and brought a genuine Aprilia centre stand for my Strada.
The first thing that struck me was the amount of bits that came with it. The kit included the centre stand (which fits with replacable bushes), grease nipples for the centre stand pivots, all nuts and bolts as required and a new side stand and bracket !.
It took about 1 to 1.5 hours to fit and is relitivlely easy, requireing only basic spanners, socket set and allen keys.
Total cost from Panda was 99.50 inc VAT and P&P and it arrived 2 days after I ordered it.
Thanks again Panda, the stand will make maintenance a lot easier.
Nice touch with the stickers as well :)

Only minor nigle is that the stand is a bit stiff and needs a little had to get it into the up position.

Hi I need a new stand and was wondering if you could send me a link to the item you purchased?

Has any one tried the Hepco and Becker centre stand? http://www.norrus.net/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=5436
How do they compare to the Aprilia stand?

I understand that the Trail has more ground clearance than the Strada. Does the same stand fit both?

At $300 they are quite expensive. Does the centre stand off the previous Pegaso or equivalent F650 fit?

Thanks

Sorry dont have a link, I got it from one of the members of this forum, Panda. Dam good chap he is to.
I understand from other posters here that its to short for the trail model and needs to be extended a bit.
