Electric Center Stand

I'm not sure if this is the correct spot for this so if it isn't please move it.

With my lower right leg amputation I am looking at ways to make operating my bike easier. One of those is putting the side stand up and down. Having to shift all that weight onto my right leg can be hard and painful depending on the situation.

So I am looking at installing an electric center stand and am wondering if anyone has any experiance with any of the brands offered? So far I have found 3 different brands.

MRI electric center stand.

And then these two off Amazon.

XFMT center stand

TCMT center stand

Now most of the time when I am buying parts for my bike I try not to CHEAP OUT and buy stuff from a known company. I haven't been able to find much about either of the center stands being offered on Amazon. The MRI unit seems to be the better unit but it is also $300+ more.

Anyone have one of these?

Some one had posted an interesting part a while back that might work great with your injury. Sorry, I can't find the post so if someone knows the name of it, maybe they could post the link.

Someone posted a part that was actually two wheels that came down automatically when you stopped and went back up when you moved. It was basically impossible to drop the bike since it was like training wheels that were only down when the bike stopped. I'll look for this part and if I find anything, I'll post it.

I like that option.

With the centerstand you are still going to have to support the bike prior to it engaging and potentially when it is disengaging depending on how fast it stows allowing you to drive off.

I would like to test ride a tiltingmotorworks front end sometime so I can determine if it is something for me in the future.

I've been to the TiltingMotorWorks shop in Snohomish and while it is a great idea the front fender/fairing is just BUTT UGLY and I would loose my lowers. So it isn't something I feel is an option. When and if the time comes that I need it I might change my mind.

I have an MRI center stand.

In order for the MRI to work on your bike you will have to have air ride at least in the rear.

Is the stock air shocks considered air ride?

No. You'll need to be able to lower the rear down some.

Bummer but sort of figured that after I asked this question. Just means more money to spend.
