Vstrom 1050xt
« on: May 08, 2021, 21:32:51 »
I'm wondering if the centre and side stand from an older vstrom would fit the 2020 strom?
Thanks

Only two ways to find out, but seeing as you're the first to ask then get one and let us all know how you get on...  :thumb:

You could email Mr Cosmo HERE and ask him if he knows, or if he needs a tester for a 1050 ? might get a discount :thumb:

I'll have a quid on no.

Depends how far back your talking, the 2014 on models look the same so might  fit as the bike is basically the same frame and engine wise but the older storms I don't think would fit as the rear shock, linkage, exhaust etc is different.
