MK5 CENTRE STAND

Someone has fitted a cast alloy centre stand on my MK5, which is quite narrow and not very stable.Are the wider ones available and are they a straight swap.Len

That someone was the factory. When Douglas offered the option of long pipes and barrel silencers, they had to change to a narrower centre stand as the wider one would not clear the silencers.
