As I understand, there is no center kickstand for the 1500 models. After a look under my frame, it appears there was a spot for one and maybe the frame is also used on a previous model that did have a center kickstand. Was this same frame used on 1200 models? 900 models? What model and year was the last year and size to accommodate a center kickstand? I'm thinking if for example, this frame was used on a 1200 cc model say, 2000 and used a center kickstand, I could order one for that year and model and it should fit my frame. Am I dreaming or was this frame used on a previous year and size that did use a center kickstand? Thanks.

Then I wonder if that mount that I took a photo of is for Kawasaki repair shop purposes then. Maybe it's for a bench top stand like this one I found. This guy can make these. The only thing I wonder about the mounting flange under my bike is that it's not center and more to the left just on the other side of my drive shaft.

The 1500s didn't come with center stands. If you need your bike to stand up, use a wheel chock....theres plenty on Amazon, and all the bike parts places carry them, JPCycles, Revzilla, BikeBandit, etc....

Now, if your wanting to lift your bike up, you need a support frame to clips to the bottom of your frame, You pipes/brackets on your frame won't allow you to lift your bike, they hang down too far....for use with a small bike/atv jack..
