    WTB - Centre Stand For '82 1100 Katana

    G'day Everyone

    Looking for a centre stand for my '82 1100 Katana if anyone has one to sell or knows the whereabouts of one. Apparently the '82 and '83 750 Katana centre stand also fits.

    Thanks.

    Regards

    Muddy

    Looks like it may be just for a regular GSX - isn't the Katana stand different - it has a different (and unique) part number? I wonder if they are adaptable?

    Looks like the Beko ones have bracing in the cross piece.

    Thanks, good observation. I wonder if the other key dimensions are the same? The fall-back would be to buy a new one, but at $300 they aren't cheap. The is one on flea-bay in the US, but freight is a killer. There is also a cheap, cracked one in WA - maybe I could give it a go and see if it fits.

    If it is an OEM stand you need then keep up the chase. If it is to have a stand to make life easy an option is to buy a cheap GSXF 750 centre stand and mod it to fit the Kat, having a welder is helpful with that. Have seen GSXF 750 centre stands for $50.

    Yes, it does look cheap, but I can't work out Yahoo and the shipping costs.

    Wow, that is a great tip. I have a welder and can weld - is there much in the modification?
