Motorcycle Center & Side Stands No centre stand on your bike? That can be a real nuisance. A centre stand makes the job of tensioning and lubricating your drive chain a whole lot easier. And its a great help when getting your luggage ready for the next holiday tour. So Louis offers high-quality retrofit centre stands for many different motorbikes. We also have sidestands for scooters in our range. Before buying a centre stand or sidestand, you should check which model is suitable for your machine. And the quickest way to do that, is to go to the Louis Bike Database.
