Daren,  I bought a stand from the LDMCC, there are two kinds (at least), a wide which is I understand for use with the woffle box muffler and a narrow one required where the low set mufflers are used.

I suspect you would have to be very careful to only set the bike on very level ground if you are using the narrow stand.

Affirmed!  I bought a narrow stand from the LDMCC, and had the bike topple a few times.  I ended up welding extensions to the sides of the stand to make it wider.  In hindsight I should have chose the wide stand for my Mark 3 Sports.  

Even so, when not on a hard surface I try to lean the bike against something, or take a square of plywood along with me to place under the centerstand.
