    Has anyone out there got an un-wanted centre stand for a 600 Alp (mines a '98 model, but earlier ones should fit)? Checked with that excellent source of new Honda parts, David Silvers, and apparently the stand is no longer available. The after market availability of a stand is very patchy as...

    Dominator / FMX
    Can someone explain to me why the price of a Honda C90 on ebay on most cases seems to be a lot more than a Dominator?
