XTZ 750 No Centre Stand

Think this bike is not a bad duel purpose bike but after having 3 flat tyres in a short space of time and no centre stand I got a bit annoyed with Yamaha, like what are you supposed to do here. Love some feedback. Read of a rider who fitted a stand to theirs. Mine is a 1992 model. Cheers. Currently live in in New Zealand.

you have a couple of options
RikyCross do a centre stand, but they are a little slow
Riky Cross - HOME

good feedback from a friend who has one

or the slightly more expensive option, but less weight and the best centre stand you can buy is from Middenbok voor motorfietsen / Centerstand for motorcycles / Haupstander für das motorrad


i still havent decided which to get for my S10

or..............

use ULTRASEAL in your tyres. its a pink slimy stuff that stops punctures! they demonstrated it at a bike rally with a bike tyre that has been stabbed about 1000 times with nails, darts, a knife, staples, tacks and it still holds air!

also try "slime" brand instead of ultraseal
its under half the price and does the same job
there are 2 different types, one for tubed tyres and one for tubeless
so make sure you get the correct type
