Can anyone clue me in on which center stands are interchangeable with my '80 KZ1000 B4?

I'm looking for one and have found a few on ebay but they're for different models and I don't want to purchase the wrong one.

The B/LTD models didn't come with a center stand.
Does it have the mounts for a stand?

These models share the same stand:
Model (18):
KZ1000-A1 (KZ1000) (1977)
KZ1000-A2 (KZ1000) (1978)
KZ1000-A2A (KZ1000) (1978)
KZ1000-A3 (KZ1000) (1979)
KZ1000-A3A (KZ1000) (1979)
KZ1000-A4 (KZ1000) (1980)
KZ1000-C1 (Police 1000) (1978)
KZ1000-C1A (Police 1000) (1978)
KZ1000-C2 (Police 1000) (1979)
KZ1000-C3 (Police 1000) (1980)
KZ1000-C4 (Police 1000) (1981)
KZ1000-D1 (Z1R) (1978)
KZ1000-D3 (Z1R) (1980)
KZ900-A4 (1976)
KZ900-A5 (1977)
Z1 (Z1) (1973)
Z1-A (Z1) (1974)
Z1-B (Z1) (1975)


A stand like this, found at a local parts/tool place, can do the trick at home:

Yes, it does have mounts.

And, I have an e-mail into Oldkawman.

Thanks for the list! That'll help a lot.

I have a frame lift and it's on it now but, I have to take the Kerker header off to use it. I don't want to have to do that every time I just want to lift the wheel.

Thanks for the replies,
Sonny

the ltds have the tabs for center stand on the frame.i might be wrong but i would think a plain ol kz stand would work,might need a little tweaking depending on which exhuast you are running.;)
Still recovering,some days are better than others.

Insert pipe
