The M8 Softail Electric Center Stand is designed for 2018 and newer Harley-Davidson softail models. We engineered this stand with air ride systems in mind. Our integrated compressor mounts are designed to run a viair 100c air compressor and acts as structural support (compressor not included). Our stand is designed around the shotgun shocks air ride system ( other systems are capable with modifications). The main body is made from 6061-T6 aluminum and utilizes high load bronze bushings. The cross shaft is made from 304 bearing grade stainless steel . The billet aluminum legs feature stackable height modular shoes . All finish is done in black anodize and gloss black powder coat. Wiring is achieved by a plug-n-play harness that is designed for an quick easy installation. (Do not alter harness, may void warranty)
While designing the M8 Center Stand we also took into consideration the exhaust manufacturers. We comfirmed that Samson ,Freedom, Performance, Dirty Bird and Bassani (with new afk crossover tube for Bassani only ADDITIONAL COST) exhaust true duals are compatible with the M8 Center Stand. Most two into one exhaust will also work.
We have added a cut template with the stand to clearance the right side Samson exhaust bracket. (please state in comment when ordering if you need Samson template.) Please check with AF Kustoms for other exhaust manufacturers and fitment. Note: be aware we have only test fitted samson, freedom and Bassani exhuast true duals to our stand . Other pipe manufacturers will have to be verified.
There are 2 options for leg length. Short which are for bikes that sit no higher than 2 inches off the ground aired down. Long legs are 2 inches taller than the short legs for bikes sitting no lower than 3.5-4″ off the ground when aired out . Although we have designed our stand for the shotgun air ride system we do offer adapter rings for other manufacturers air compressors (Legends and Platinum). You will have to use some ingenuity to mount the other components to your air system on your bike .
Note:The m8 center stand is only plug and play with shotgun shocks air system.
