When I got my first Enfield in 2008 I did a mod to stop the centre stand wearing ovals in the frame plates.
The frame plates wear because the spindle revolves in the frame rather than stand revolving on the spindle.
To stop this wear I prevented the spindle moving and fitting a grease nipple into the stand.
The centre stand then swivels on the spindle over a much bigger bearing surface.

I now have a 2019 C5 Euro4 and see that things have not improved and the design fault is still there.
Sorted this afternoon.
RE don't seem to learn do they.
