    Hello Mike,

    Glad to hear that you are getting back into business! How can I make an order for an NX650 stand?

    The list is long right now. We received a good amount of snow today and will get more this week. It looks like I will start making some stands tomorrow after I am done shoveling. I can not give a date on when requests will be filled. Sorry.

    The thanks go to you guys for helping out. :clap

    A lot going on here in Colorado, just watch the news. My time is spent working on things that are more important to me than stands right now. I will do my best to start getting some out. The list is pretty long now. It may take a while to make a dent in it.

    I better hurry before there is no off road riding. It is under attack here in Colorado and I believe it is likely to happen here very soon. We have put into office those that hate our use of public lands at both State and Federal levels. I am afraid the only reason it has not happened yet is that they need to disarm us before U.N. Agenda 21 can be put into place.

    Cheers for Colofornia,

    Mike

    I just got my stand installed and it raises the front wheel off the ground, not the rear! It also hits the OEM side stand on the way up/retracted. And you can not put the center stand down without putting the side stand down and that means your ankle gets squeezed between the center stand and the side stand... ouch. I didnt get any instructions but it looks like a simple 2 bolt install.

    can anyone help with this because as it "stands" LOL this thing is no use to me... I need the rear wheel lifted for service and repair not the front.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Mike please reply to my PM's and phone calls regarding problems with your XR650L center stand I just bought. If anyone knows a better way for me to contact Mike, please speak up.

    Thanks,

    Nick, I just answered your email. Sorry, but I don't check my business emaill account everyday or ADV. The side stand will bump up against the centerstand when retracted. Yes, you do need to have the side stand down when deploying and retracting the centerstand. It is possible that I got the balance off on that stand. If you have bags on the rear with any weight in them the bike will sit on the rear wheel. Mine does when I am loaded up.

    I will see about getting a stand to replace that one and exchange it. In the mean time can you place a little weight on the front of yours for servicing? When mine is loaded, usually the weight of my jacket and helmet will tip it on the front.

    Sorry about that.

    Mike

    I bought a brand new stand with Mikes permission (LMAO) from another inmate and it is a 10lb POS! It raises the front wheel and firmly plants the rear wheel. Mike has jerked me around since March promising tp send me another to make it right... just read the emails in his words.... I just finished Tour de Tellico and my front wheel stand was a big hit!!! Mike offered to pay me far less than I paid another inmate for it plus me ship it to him... he also told me to install and use it while he built me a new one... now he's just flaked out on me all together... so I'd have to sell it as used and suffer even more loss$$$$
    Dont even come back with what a good guy Cigar is... I wanted to believe it too but he offered to make his hand made stand right and then blew me off over 10 weeks time.

    How impressive you are with your vocabulary! Try to get a friend, definitely not a blood family member, read you the correspondence I referenced regarding how Cigar Mike promised to replace my stand and did not. Maybe then you'll see who is really the whining little bitch in this thread. BTW, you have no dog in this fight... are you upset because your marriage is on the rocks, finally coming to terms with your homosexuality??? You're a novice LOSER!

    I explained to you that I did not have time right now. I am busy with other things. Because of this I offered to pay you the price that I sell the stand for to ADV inmates. I also explained to you that since I did not sell the stand to you I had no obligation to do anything. I have stopped building stands for now and I do not know if I will build more for sale. I never thought there would be the demand for the stands that there has been. It was taking too much time to meet the demand. This is just a hobby for me that allowed me to provide something no one else had. I will build one more for you if you still want it. It does not sound like you do. As you can see, I could care less about a negative report on me our my stands.

    Listen up everyone. Cigar Mike's Centerstands suck! Don't try to order one, please.

    Mike

    I would like to make the stand right. I have packed all of my tools up and I am using my huge 10'x11' shop to store other items. Once I move everything out to make one more stand I will try and make a few more. I liked making them but the time it takes is just not there right now. I spend a lot of time with my two grandsons and the time I take to make stands cuts into that. With the mild winter this year in the Denver area I had more time to do other things and the stands took a back seat.

    It is not his fault the stand is not right. It is mine and if I had sold him the stand I would be happy to provide a full refund for the stand if he did not want it, less shipping. If a stand is faulty my policy is a full refund plus shipping or I will try and correct it. But I will not pay for what he spent to buy it from someone else. I would make a refund based on the orignal purchase order though, if I knew the orginal customers name and pull the reciept from my records. The money is not a problem.
