Easy way to tell your center stand is FUBAR or

Getting there.
Notice the center stand foot lever noticeably forward of the stock left side exhaust pipe cut out, that's the tell tale sign of a really messed up center stand crossmember.

The further forward from the exhaust pipe cut out the worst, mine being in the extreme end.

Yours isn't the first. There have been other posts on it happening. And repairs done.

I just wanted to post a picture of what it looks like when doing a walk around.
Thanks for the link, yet I already seen that page.
I am going to start the repair in the near future. I just have to finish a crotch rocket project.
That way i will have more room to play.
