There are two circular brackets under the voltage regulator, in front of the rear wheel under the back of the engine. They *almost* look like a center stand mounting point, but I suspect they're too weak for that use. What are they originally for? I know the XV950 never had a center stand option....

They're for the crane to get hold of when you take the 'offroad' image of the SCR too literally!!! 😉

I looped thru those two holes to hang my Gaurdian Bell.

They may just be remnants of the assembly line process - points to secure the chassis while the various components are installed.
There are two great big lugs on the engine of my Super Tenere like that.

In all seriousness, I did wonder the same......

Nah, it's all leverage. I've got an emergency stand idea in the works, so I can attempt roadside tube repair if the need arises. Once I have a prototype working I'll post info.

I used the center stand exclusively on my Virago 1100 and I miss it dearly. So easy for cleaning and maintenance of both front and rear wheels. It must have been at least a dozen times that I demonstrated how easy it is to put it up when you do it correctly.

Yup, same with my old Z1, until someone showed me how to properly do it I thought I'd never be able to do it alone. It's all technique, love me a center stand!

My KZ750 1977 twin.. 542 lbs....has a center stand. Wasnt hard to put up because the KZ has a steel loop at the end of the seat you can pull up on. Wish the scr had one. I dont like the idea of it always on one side. Cant check the oil etc. But a center stand like eddie showed will work just as good.

I’ve got a lift for the garage. I’m working on something for the road.
Hello Chopper Charles, I see this topic and post is a bit old, but was wondering if you saw that a company named T-Rex Racing now makes a center stand for the Yamaha Bolt? The Part Number: N79-13CS, $184.95


I’ve been thinking about trying it out.

I stumbled upon that center stand as well. I would LOVE to have one for the convenience it offers for maintenance and repairs. My ONLY hesitation is that it will further lower the SCR! Give it a go and let us know! Jevers

Definitely Jevers, ground clearance is indeed a concern.

From what I could tell in the pictures on the T-Rex site, and from what I saw in their install video, the center stand looks to fold away nice and tight under there; might even be level with the muffler hanger (I think.)

I contacted them and asked whether they knew if this center stand would fit the SCR and/or C-Spec, to which they basically replied - ‘we are not sure, since we didn’t have one of those available to test the center stand on.’

They told me about their 30 day (kind of no hassle) return policy for unused, undamaged parts - open box or otherwise. They seemed good-to-go so I went ahead and ordered a center stand. I will definitely keep the forum up-to-date as to whether or not it fits.

The SCR I will be trying to fit the center stand onto, has the Bassani Upswept full exhaust, so the initial trial fit could be interesting. I kept the stock exhaust and hanger, and depending on how close everything mounts up, I may go through the trouble of swapping out the Bassani for the stock howitzer shell. My intuition with this center stand though, is that it will fit as is.

Again, from what I saw in their install video, the muffler side’s adapter plate, provided in the kit, seems to have been designed to account for after market exhausts (I think.)

Below is the link to the T-Rex Official YouTube channel install video of the center stand on a blue Bolt R-Spec:


Thanks for the reply Jevers. I usually am more of a reader than a poster. I really dig this forum. “It’s just a ride.” - Bill Hicks (RIP)

Be well, take care and stay aware.

I can't wait for your review on how it fits. I decided a while ago that I am done spending money on my SCR, but this will be an exception if you report back that it fits with no issues. Thanks for sharing your research so far.

Just so you all know, Schu has turned to living ( spending) vicariously through ME! HE pressured me into going over the top with mods. Oh well, I guess I am enjoying 😏 the benefits of being a victim of peer pressure! 😜 Jevers

Don't worry Jay, I'm still spending money on motorcycles. But it's all about the vintage bikes. As a matter of fact, I am doing front brakes on three of them today. I worry on these 40-50 year old bikes that the fiber lining on the brake shoes can delaminate and lockup, sending you for loop! So I am working my way thru the herd.

Ahhhhhh, I should have known! Well, carry on with God's work then.
