This is the standard version of the HT KLRE centerstand. See the lowered version here.
The Happy Trails Centerstand reflects two-years of research and development. Our goal was to design & produce a product that would be best in class for the following criteria:
- Ease of installation
- Ease of use - in getting the bike on the stand
- Ground clearance - the most possible
- Adjustable height - one stand for all combinations of tires
- Lightweight (6.25 lb.) and durable
- Replaceable wearing parts
We think we've succeeded on all counts.
Answers to questions you've asked:
The sidestand and centerstand must be deployed in a certain order to avoid interference. When dismounting, set the sidestand first ... next deploy the centerstand. Reverse this order when preparing to ride.
The product works with all skid plates Happy Trails sells for the KLR650. If you have a different skid plate, then look to see if there is an air space where your skid plate meets the foot peg bracket. If there is, then your skid plate will work with our centerstand.
- This centerstand does not work with any Lowering Links.
SW-Motech Note: SW-Motech crash bars can work with our centerstand - you will need to find some M8x35 (12.9 hardened) bolts with a 1.25 thread pitch. Some customers have drilled and tapped the peg mount bolts to 10 mm from 8mm to address any concern of the additional stress given to the peg mounting bolts.

Will this fit on my 2016? I know it says 08+ but were there any changes made to the bike between 08+ and now that will effect ease of installation?
This center stand works all "E" Model KLR's through the current year.
With this work with raising links?
There should not be any issues using the Raising Links
