T-Rex Center Stand questions

Enjoying my new 500 that I picked up in late July. been lurking the forums ever since, and have gotten some great info. I'm currently getting all my winter projects lined up.


I'm trying to decide between the T-Rex center stand and a rear spool stand with the T-Rex spool adapters. I can't find a good picture of how the center stand fits in the up position. Does it lock in the up position, or does the spring keep it up? Does it bounce around while riding? Anyone have a pic of it in the up position.


Really can't decide which way to go. Thoughts?

I had the same questions (didn't post) about a center stand and ended up just getting a swing arm stand from harbor freight on sale for about $25 over labor day that works perfect.

Do you have the OEM exhaust? My understanding is the OEM exhaust is in the way of swingarm stands.

I do not, I have the Musarri slip on. The OEM muffler would definitely get in the way. Good luck!

The center stand is great, it is held up by the spring and doesn't bounce around at all. The center stand goes where you go, and the swing arm stand stays at home. I love mine, it was the first thing I added to my 500. This picture will give you some idea of the up position.

I have managed to make my swing arm stand work with the OEM exhaust. Just have to fiddle it slightly off straight, and be careful....

I found this video on fitting the center stand. Not sure if it's up already. https://youtu.be/KUoXU5QaB4A
