My FZ6 came stock with one, and that is the long and short of it. Chain lubrication and adjustment, tire changes, etc. Only other nice thing is when fully loaded with luggage and stopped on soft ground, I'll put it on the centerstand to both level the load and keep it from auguring in. A sidestand puck or crushed soda can fixes that just as easily.
