I believe J&R's as well as one version of the Spec II's allow centerstand retention. Are there others and which version of the Spec II's? Going to need to bolt the centerstand back up permanently due to a health issue. Bike is a 72 H2. Thanks in advance for the help! :thumbup:

Sorry about your issue - is it your back again? Anyway, you're correct about J&Rs and I'm pretty certain on Spec II as well. I had FBG on my H2C and they allowed the stand as well. Here's a quick tip too - my Concours is a bear to get on the centre stand..so i just roll the back trie onto a 2x4 and it makes it dead easy to lift it onto the stand.

Hi Ian! No, not the back as I had that fused at lower cervical about 1 1/2 yrs ago. It's the right hip- degeneration and osteoarthritis. Scheduled for total hip replacement surgery the week after the Gap Meet. Will have to kick from right side of bike with the left leg and centerstand will aid in many ways. After THR, will not be able to kick with right leg. Sucks getting old.....

JP- thanks for letting me know the KTec Standards would work too!

Customers bike, rebuilt the motor for him. Dencos on a 74 H2B, seemed to clear fine. Pipes had the normal dents from speed bumps, I did not analyze how the pipes cleared the center stand.

Those look nice and appear to have more clearance than the criss cross pipes they make. I see they are cheaper on webike than on their eBay store. What's the sound like compared to other popular chambers? Thanks for posting.

If you buy the K2tecs the best place to buy them is Webike Japan and watch for their sales !!! Don't by them off eBay,too expensive !!!
