    Hi Mrobbie,

    A warm welcome to the forum from the West Yorkshire Pennines.

    As for a suitable bolt on centre stand for your bike, Wheeldock EZ-Up is highly recommended in the USA, the CS-01-C and CS-03 should fit your 2005 model. Price in the USA is around the $269 mark, the stand can be installed in 2 to 5 minutes.

    Here is a short video.




    Hope you find what you're looking for.

    Ok Mrobbie,

    Cheers mate.

    Try ebay or click on this link for Wheel Dock's website www.wheeldock.com.

    Harley-Davidson do a bolt on centre stand, but it's only for 2009 - up models.

    Dave.

    Welcome tae the forum fae Fife. I had centre stands, on a lot of my old bikes. Took a bit of getting used to just having a side stand, but now that I am, I don't miss one.

    I know what you mean. Think the weight of the big Harleys makes it an issue getting them on and off centre stands, hence the rarety.

    The EZ-Up stand is very easy to use, as shown in the video the rider can put an H-D Tourer onto the stand while still seated, he then rides it off the stand.

    The only drawback in buying from buying from the USA is the taxes that the UK slap on imported goods. Import duty, VAT, Royal Mail handling fee, it can all add up to a lot of money on top of the purchase price.

    I paid £90 in taxes on my £210 (including shipping) pair of Python 3 slip-on mufflers.
