Lightbulb Center stand off

A couple times I draged the center stand in some curves, I got rid of it . I left the bracket , looks funny but I decided not to remove it. Every time I need to wash, lub, and long term storage I just put it back not using the spring it takes 2 minutes to put it or remove it.

have you tried winding the rear pre-load up to firm/stiffen the rear end up.
This helps

I love my center stand. I'd probably take my side stand off before the center.

Are you guys riding lows or something? I had my previous tires scrubbed all the way to the edge and never drug the stand. Only time I did drag it was a very near low-side that DTC saved me from. I keep my rear pre-load pretty high, too.

only time I remove mine is for track days, I make use of the center stand a lot, chain maintenance is a breeze especial when on tour.
I'm on a low an get the bike over, I have the rear pre load wound up, but not fully.
Only time it dragged the road was fully loaded with camping gear on a twisty road with a sharp dip, think most bikes would have scrapped something.

One of the first things I did too. I'm short and it was in the way of being able to get to the side stand. Plus in the way when doing a track day. It's easy to put back on without the spring if I need to lift the bike for what ever reason.
