    Glad you got it fixed. I've never seen a 350, 450 or 500T do that before... it may have had a history of the PO having the habit of rolling it backward and slamming the centerstand down to help them get it up onto the stand. I've seen plenty of people do that over the years, treating it like a Lambretta

    Yeah me neither Tom. But I have seen a lot of "first" with this bike so nothing surprises me anymore.

    I really like the look of a clean center stand on a clean bike. Sometimes it gets overlooked and left rusty.
    You may have added a show-point or three cleaning yours up.

    To be honest, the ground-down part of that stand (not the crack) looks like a stand that's contacted the pavement on hard turns many times.
    450's can be heeled over pretty far, and every one I've ever had showed that same center stand "damage".
    Now admittedly I was an aggressive rider in my past.

    That's entirely possible also that the stand has been weakened from repeated contact with the pavement. Although I can say I have only done that a handful of times.

    Sitting on it or kick starting it while on the stand is hard on the stand too.
