XTZ750 centre stand?

Does anyone have info on fitting a centre stand to an XTZ 750 '94 model? Only having a side stand is a pain in the butt!

Hi there,
I am also looking for a centrestand for my XTZ750. Can you let me know if you locate one and I will do likewise. It doesnt seem that there are many XTZ750 riders around most have opted for the 660 or XT600. Any reason for this? I am also looking for a good pannier rack. My problem is that I live in Japan and trying to get anyone to do anything out of the ordinary here is really difficult. I hope to ride from Vladivostok to Cape Town next year.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Miles.

Haven't found an answer yet but I noticed that on the bottom of the frame there is a U-shaped bracket with a couple of 10mm holes in it. Thinking I might be able to do something with this. I'm just looking around at the moment for someone who might be able to help me with this. I'll keep you posted of any developments. I actually thought I'd get lots of replies from dirt bike riders saying you don't need a centre stand, you just ____(something). Apparently not. What do they do when they have a flat or something out riding? With regards to the pannier rack I fitted a Givi rack that was readily available here. I've also had good experiences (on road bikes) with Non-Fango stuff. Most of the diehard offroad travellers seem to make their own however. Cheers.

First of all - you DON'T NEED A CENTRESTAND, but it's good to have one on the other hand...

If you have heavy duty alloy cases - which is advisable anyway - you could use these as a centrestand-replace in case you need to change a tyre - if you use your helmet it would work likewise, but you ruin it...

As for the centrestand you can actually buy it brand new here, for example - I'm sure there are plenty of other places here either ...

Chose Yamaha first and then your model...

For the Motorbike:
The XTZ750 ist the SUPER Tenere which includes SUPER HEAVY due to TWO instead of ONE cylinder, which explains almost everything I hope...

(Forgot to mention it CAN be annoying, when the centrestand always hits the ground doing some offroad - so remember this!!!)
