04 750 VN center stand

I have an 04 750vn . It doesn't have a center stand.the bike have Vance and Hines pipes and saddle bags as well as cargo box . My question is can I put a center stand on there or was it removed due to the pipes. Any help greatly appreciated

I don't know why a previous owner would take the centerstand off. Others have the same pipes but I don't remember reading anywhere about them being in-compatible with the centerstand. I suppose it IS possible the pipes wouldn't fit with the centerstand but I can tell you that I, personally, will choose to keep the centerstand over any aftermarket pipes any day of the week.

The centerstand is wonderful to have!

Do you actually have the centerstand available?

Thank you No sadly. I bought the bike last year .I didn't think to look to see if it was there or not. I'm just now getting serious about finding one. Checking and changing oil alone would be so much easier with the center stand

I use the crap out of mine. As you said, at oil change time. It makes it easier to check the rear tire pressure when its on the stand, too. No more rolling it until the nozzle can be seen. Just put it on the stand and spin the wheel.

I also change my own tires and lube the drive shaft/final drive splines. The center stand is a MUST then. But to drop the rear wheel you've got to put several inches of flat board under the stand to raise it up enough for the wheel to come all the way off.

I don't know why Kawasaki didn't put one on the Vulcan S, too. It would make maintenance so much easier for those guys if they had one.

I don't see why it wouldn't fit. The front portion of your exhausts are the stock pipes with the notch in it for the center stand foot peg so the thing should fit.

Check out the pics below. My pipes are stock and there's a good one showing the notch that you also have.

Look at your pics and then look at mine. The front half are stock. This means that whatever portion of the exhausts that would come near the center stand are the same. It should fit.

I've never had the occasion to remove my center stand for whatever reason so I can't speak of what all is involved nuts-n-bolts-wise but it can't be rocket science. When buying one I'd obviously shoot for the most complete looking setup you can find.
