hopefully it will still be an under 5 minute install for the 400. For the harder core trail runs it could be removed, and reinstalled for the softcore and around town stuff

On the 650L stand it is a snap to install without the skid plate. With the skid plate on it can be a bear to line up the bolt holes. I assume it will be a similar situation on the 400. I don't have one therefore I don't really know. I will have to wait to get feedback after the first one is installed. I will let you know.

Progress on the TE610

Still have a ways to go to refine the design, but I know it will work now.

Thanks to Mountain Eagle for the use of his Husky.

it should make it easier to work on until it is actually running.

TE610 Center Stand

This stand is made just like the one shown in the parts fiche. I think that I will still make a few adjustments. but it is very close.







Goes up on the stand easily. I think the legs need to get higher in the up position. I will be working on that.

Revised Husky TE610 Center Stand

I think I see why Husky didn't make their stand available. It works but the stand was not designed very well. I made some changes and it works but it is not perfect. The problem is the side stand. There is just not enough room to fit the two together perfectly. There is some manipulation of the side stand and the center stand to get them up and down. But it is not too bad, IMO. Basically you will need to move both stands downward to get the side stand down. Once the side stand is down the center stand works fine. One of the easier bikes to get up on the stand. Stepping on the press down leg and lifting from the rear rack or rear section of the bike will get the bike up easily.







$80.00 plus shipping. Stands a primered and painted with rattle can paint. Will sell unfinished for $75.00 plus shipping. Unfinished stand shown in above pictures.

XR400 Stand is complete

I am sending the XR400 center stand out tomorrow so that it can tested. If the test goes well they will be available soon. The stand that is going out is for a SM'ed bike. I will need a measurement for the standard dirt version to make the adjustment.

In answer to an earlier question. Yes, it will be a 5 minute or less install.

Thanks,

Mike

PM'd you back with the height as near as I could figure for my bike (trying to balance it on the floor jack while measuring)

how is the spring tension on the ones that you've built for other models, will it withstand some hooligan moves?

The spring tension is good and the stand stays up nice and tight to the stop. There is no bounce of the stand that I am aware of. Getting a spring that would do that and also retain its spring tension with the amount of extension required is why the spring is so long. Because the upper spring connection point is so far from the pivot point this was necessary. Getting the spring right on these stands is the hardest part of putting it together.

I base this on the XR650L stand which is almost the same as the XR400 stand. The only difference being the mounting bracket and a bend in the legs similar to the Husky TE610 stand. I hope to have some pictures next week when I receive them.

Thanks for getting the measurement.

Like it!

My 06 610 is lowered two inches at the shock. Do you think the center stand would still work?

Mike -

My XR650L center stand arrived in record time, and was very professionally packed to boot! I really appreciate the lightning-fast service.

I am looking to being reunited with my bike (we are on opposite coasts right now) and getting the stand mounted.

Thanks again for an awesome product!
