R100GS center stand on a R80G/S

Will it work? There is 2 on ebay right now and mine is falling apart. Part numbers are different but spacing looks similar. Anybody know if the R100GS/R80GS center stand will fit on a G/S

It won't work. I can't remember why, but it won't. After putting the slightly taller GS front end and G/S length rear shock I wanted a slightly taller center stand to get my wheels off the ground a bit when necessary. I found a somewhat janky GS centerstand for $20 literally down the street from my house. I took it home and held it up to the bottom of the frame and it was a pretty obvious no-go. I can't remember what it clanked on, but it was a big enough interference that I didn't even consider trying to make it work. For the life of me though I can't remember what it was that wouldn't let it fit.

I'm currently mod'ing a GS stand for an RTW rider couple to fit their G/S. It is in a way easier to mod the G/S stand, if you have an extra while the bike is in use.

Some of the adapting issues of the GS to G/S conversion:
  • The GS is much taller.
  • The right GS leg is splayed such that it has an interference issue w/ the G/S brakelight bracket and associated real estate.
  • The spring attachment points are different between the two models.

All that is nothing major to manage, but it is not a 'plug-n-play' quickie.

Carl

Why would you want that peice of crap when Carl has a much better option.

I like the jack handle too, but its over center since the angle is different. AW, what did you end up doing when you raised the ST?

If you make a center stand for the G/S, Carl, I'll will buy one!

I don't like where that other stand goes, kind of hangs there in the open next to the rear tire. I want to extend it a bit as my bike leans over too much with the GS front end. I'd rather butcher up an extra than the original one....

I'd rather trade for a test report of the stand.

Motobins is clearing out GS center stands for 24 GBP ($37 US). Brand new oem units with the plastic bits.

If you can make the logistics work by ordering other stuff it's a pretty good deal (given the price on ebay for rag-tag used units is $109 with shipping and the MAX BMW price is $195).

http://www.motobins.co.uk/cart.php?a1=0&a2=0&a3=0&a4=0

Mine arrived in about a week.

(Sorry if this doesn't help much, Jenna.)

I settled for a centerstand that just mostly unweights the wheels instead of lifting them off the ground. If I need liftoff, I look for a high spot or a stick to deploy the centerstand on. It works fine. The upside is that it holds the bike upright just as well AND takes less effort to lift the bike onto.

With the GS forks the center stand on the G/S is just fine for getting the wheels off the ground. Is the ST's different?? BMW parts fiche shows different #'S
