This is a genuine Yamaha centre stand to replace the dodgy stands fitted to 2001, 2002 and some 2003 models.
Centre stands of these years are prone to break resulting in catastrophic damage to the bikes fairing and exhaust silencers when it falls, usually as you have walked away from the bike! The stands break on the left leg just above the foot stand.
This stand is a Yamaha modified stand and does not break.
Best advice I can give is to only use the main stand for servicing unless you really have too. The side stand does not break.
Only 2001, 2002 and some early 2003 model bikes are affected. The easiest way to check the stands that are liable to break is by feeling the foot stand part of the centre stand. The faulty types are cylindrical. Modified types are fluted underneath.
N.B. Your stand may never break, but all early stands are suspect. Please be warned.
THIS IS AN O/E ITEM AND HAS TO BE ORDERED FROM YAMAHA. THEREFORE THERE WILL BE A DELAY IN POSTING OF, NORMALLY, BETWEEN 7-10 DAYS.
