Been looking at the Katana 600 on the Suzuki website and was wondering if that machine comes with a centerstand?

The description does not mention one which leads me to believe it does not but thought I'd ask the owners.

Yet to see one that didn't have one. If it doesn't then someone probably removed it.

Actually, my '97 doesn't have a centerstand either.

And I can't believe the last owner removed it; the guy never even changed the tires in the 7 years he owned the bike! :2eek

every katana i've seen has a center stand unless it was previously removed. i have an '89 katana parts bike and it has a center stand on it. my '01 katana also has a center stand.

Don't intend to start an argument, but that's not entirely correct. My '97 600 has a side stand, just as shown in the Suzuki manual. The '97 750, however, had a centerstand (seems the manual was the same for the 600 and the 750).

interesting ... every katana i've seen has both side and center, unless the center stand was removed by a previous owner to gain more ground clearance or lose weight. didn't mean that they only had center.

Both? :3eek
I'd be pi$$ed if it didn't show just a sidestand in the manual.

Yeah, yeah, just rub it in!
Seriously, though, the manual, and the pictures/sketches in it, shows only a sidestand for the '97 600. I think it says that also, but can't remember.

Check on the bike, you can always buy one and install it. They are always selling on eBay pretty cheap. Sometimes pictures aren't true and don't show some things. It just bolts up to the frame underneath.
