Im looking at a Ducati Performance part # 96730903B which is a add on/ bolt on center stand and lifting handle to fit the Ducati MultiStrada 1000-1100 2003 to 2008 model years.
I cannot find mounting instructions anywhere, and I am wanting to know if this center stand mounts to the engine , the frame, or both the engine and frame.
I am asking because I have a project bike Im working on that has a Ducati DS 1100 engine in a custom frame. The same engine as the 2008 Ducati MultiStrada. Im interested in putting a center stand on the bike. If the Ducati centerstand mounts onto the engine, then it should be an easy thing to do. But if the Ducati centerstand mounts to the MultaStrada frame than to us this on the project bike may be more difficult.
Is there anyone here that knows the answer to my question(s), or even better; is there anyone who has one of these centerstands on their MultiStrada and can they post a few pictures of its mounting points???
Thank you for any and all help with this.
P.S.........the project bike is a show bike thats a modern/"Retro" enduro with a "ISDE" theme ( ISDE= International Six Days Enduro). I plan to start a thread and post pictures of the "Retro ISDE" Ducati engined custom in the next few weeks/months....
For those who do not know about the ISDE, or its earlier named ISDT, the bikes use to have centerstands to allow easier/faster repairs while in the days race(s). The ISDE is it is now called is held every year at a different host country and draws riders/racers from all over the world. The race is held over a six day period and tests both the rider and his machine for performance and reliability. Medals ( gold, silver, bronze) are awarded the riders based on the 6 days of racing over some of the most demanding off road conditions.
Some of the earliest ISDT bikes were converted 4 strokes and Ive decided to make one from the ground up but using a Ducati twin for the power plant. I wanted air/oil colled engine and not a water cooler power plant. Plus I like the "look" of the air/oil cooled Ducati engine. Originally I was going to use a Suzuki TLR vee twin, but the DS 1100 mill won out.
