I don't know what bmw ones were, but I had same question a while ago. I went for stainless aftermarket ones on my k100rs which has a k1100 centre stand. I used 6mm thickness. Works ok.

Someone on here might know what exact thickness the bmw ones are. I would be interested to know.

I put on bike about 3 years ago had no hassle and gets the rear wheel off the floor which was ideal.

Hope this helps a bit.😀

Yeah, that helps more than knowing the original thickness. I took them off of an LT when I put RS wheels on it but have decided to keep those wheels for my other LT when I sell that one. That sounds thinner than the stock ones and I was wondering how much thinner I could go to make it easier to get it on the center stand. Knowing the 6mm works is good to know. Thanks.

Hey Duck, the spacers on the centre stand mount of my 1995 K1100LT are 6mm.

Cheers

I was looking under mine [K1100LT] on Saturday about fitting tow bar.....they look to be 3mm definitely not 6mm and thinking to get rid of them altogether. I did fit the top half at KFest as it was the only way home with it....!

That's interesting Olaf. My K1100 is an ex-police bike that I purchased myself directly from the police department so I know I am the second owner and I would be very confident that the police department would not be changing the centre stand spacer sizing.

Mine's a 1995 but RealOEM lists the same part number for the earlier K1100 bikes.

Cheers

I would agree on the police bike comment. My one could have been changed. It spent its first2-3 years as the personal bike of a BMW dealer owner.

As for wheel sizes, there is very little difference in rolling diameters using the listed tyres. I was looking for dropped height and ended up with choice of 18 RS rear wheel and 160/60 or 17 LT wheel and 140/80 which in fact is 3.5mmlarger on the radius. I put a 140/70 instead on the 17 LT rear and happy with that but it takes about 10mm off the radius hence the desire to remove spacers.

Olaf would you just remove the centre stand and take the spacers out from between the gearbox and the cradle and use them under the cradle and use the same bolts?

I also have a K1100 stand assembly on the K100RT but I have no spacers. I used the original stand assembly bolts off the RT. WD40 on them regularly for weeks before the change and they all came out good.

There as a little mention somewhere about bolt lengths but not sure what it was. If there are two bolt lengths then unless someone can say noissue I would put the spacers between the bolt and stand to keep the same thread length into the gearbox.

Yes it was that very post that mentions the different length bolts that prompted me to ask.
