K12S Center stand

I recently bought an '06 K12S and the bike doesn't have a center stand. I would like to add one for various reasons.
There seems to be a couple of options, factory and aftermarket. Has anyone here done this to theirs?
Which way did you go? If you installed it yourself, can you provide any pointers?

Secondhand or from a breaker.
Possibly the K1200s will be same as K1200r & even same as K1300 variants.
Here is a great link for parts catalog(but select your specific model year

I did BMW - better steel & did not cut as to what BMW says - to much of a cut to her belly pan. Did a cut to match what is needed to clear the center stand like this uses a dremel for fine cutting & sand paper to finish off http://www.i-bmw.com/showthread.php?t=22109
good luck
