Purchased a used center/sidestand assembly from a 92 K75 to replace my cracked 85 unit. I heard that BMW improved them over the years and am wondering how to tell. The only difference between it and my old one is the 92 has a slight bend in the sidestand, mine is straight.

The difference between the very early ones breaking and the newer style is the addition of a gusset on the new ones.

Centre stands are not supplied with new bikes today and to save humping I just ride straight into this.

This was home built but a lighter one is supplied at various outlets at around £65. UK supplier www.motorbikebits.co.uk

Ajays, I've been looking at one for my Goldwing... what do you think about a unit like that for a 300kg bike? Can it support the bike without the centre stand?

I think the beauty of it is that it is not really carrying a lot of weight as you just roll in and out so it is only the weight of the front end and has much wider bracing than the standard centrestand so I suspect the only limitation is the width and size of the front tyre which on the commercial models is adjustable.
But if you are handy with a welder the picture speaks a thousand words.

Ned, if you are looking at some sort of support for your Goldwing, can't you attach it to the front of a prawn trawler with chains...that way it can be raised and lowered when you need to use it... Twisted Evil

Thanks Ajays. All my questions are answered Smile I only need one because the Wing doesn't have a centre stand at all. Because it was lowered by 2" the C. Stand use is not at all possible, so this would be my solution to keep the beast upright as I work on the left head at some stage.

Hi. the best idea is to get a stand complete with mount from the K1100 series these had straight legs and were much better than the original. I have fitted one to both of my K100s. Be careful not to get duped with a k12 stand, the mount will fit, but the stand legs are too short. I believe they'll fit the K75 too.
