I have Torq Loopz installed on my bike and today I installed a Center Stand..... but where does the rubber bumper go?* Those with no exhaust mod might have the rubber bumper on that Cat I believe, but the Torq Loopz eliminated the cat.

I finally fabbed some stop out of angle and have it u-bolted to the bottom center of the center stand but not sure how that will work out in the long run.

Why would you add a heavy centerstand that wasn't made for our bikes? Our bikes have larger wheels for increased ground clearance over the GW and F6B which that stand was made for. Did you at least remove the side stand since you got the centerstand?

Why? I use mine every single day and rather it than the kickstand. And no, I still have the "side stand" and rarely use it but it is there for when I want it.

I'm about to fit a centre stand onto my bike.

I have 4 other bikes and use the centre stand on all of them. Loading and unloading, filling the tank (and auxiliary fuel cell when fitted), general maintenance and even the rare wash are all easier with the bike standing up straight.

As for the weight of the stand.......... I think the stand may be a kilo or 2 and the bike about 340 or something.

Center stand for maintenance. Place a piece of 1x or 2x under center stand and its wheels up. No.....kept the side stand. Center stand is not that heavy.... probably weighs as much as a six pack or less.

I have saddle bags on my 14 Valk as well.... yep more weight. And....hold on to your seat, occasionally I might have another passenger on my bike, since I have a 2up Corbin seat and backrest.

It's got 1832cc and can handle it..... :laugh:

Put the bike on the side stand Lay on your back on the right-hand side look underneath where your rear shock mount is just to the left of that you’ll see a tab off the catalytic converter with a hole in it for the rubber stopper

Problem resolved..... and FYI the Torque Loopz eliminate the Cats, so there is no Cats with a hole for that. LOL

What did you do to solve this issue? I have the loopz to install & noticed the rubber stop was mounted to the CAT... I’d love a pic or 2
