Hi HerrDeacon, I'm wondering what model of vortex stand you have? Also, do you need to buy any further components or will the vortex just lift the bike by the swingarm? (I currently have a centrestand but am planning to get a rally raid engine guard so will have to lose the centre stand unfortunately)

Here is the exact one I have - >>>> link hidden <<<<

However, it appears that the newer version of this stand (I've had mine quite some time) is different and doesn't look like the spool attachments flip over to allow lifting under the swingarm. Seems that the new version you'll need to buy the extra parts separately to make it work for non-spool bikes - >>>> link hidden <<<<

Not sure why they changed the design, they even removed the tubes to hold the axle when you remove it.

My rear is a Vortex brand and is very solid. My front is a generic one similar to this one: >>>> link hidden <<<<

Try to get ahold of one off a 2013-2015 model.  You should be able to make it fit with a little finesse.  There might be someone on here who would have one available. 

Just post a wanted item in the appropriate section:

It would be interesting if you were able to measure each swing arm to determine if the calibration lable on each side is the same distance from the pivot point.
Or perhaps when you next have the axle out of the bike measure the adjusters and the threaded lengths?

I don't know how the Honda production line is set up but would imagine there are a number of sub contractors involved with the components being made. You can have an accumalation of tolerances where by each part is within spec but add up all of the variables and the end assembly can be quit different
