Wunderlich Lifting Handle

I'm considering getting one but was wondering if anyone had any experience with one on a K1300GT?

Mine came with one, it's the passenger left hand grab rail. If ur really short I guess it would help to put one of those on. I'm 5'8'' and have no problem putting the bike on the center stand.

Have a Great Ride, Lenbo

It is a solution looking for a problem, but a very cool looking solution. Do you think that handle will make much of a difference getting the KGT on the center stand?

It is my belief that putting the KGT (or any bike) on its center stand is much more a matter of technique than brute strength. I am neither big nor strong, but I have no problems putting the GT on its center stand, even when the bike is fully loaded for a long trip.

Which is one reason I park the bike's rear tire on top of a 1" thick square of plywood in the garage. Mucho easier. No sense busting or bending the stand in the process.

And nobody said that it used to be "Standard Equipment" on the original Ks, we all loved it.
Have I found one for the K1200RS......Nope!

I was reading a article about an old Indian and that guy would put it up on the center stand like this. Put the side stand down, turn the front wheel all the way to the stop, lean the bike over till the bike is on the side stand and front wheel only, push the center stand down and push the bike back over till it's setting on the center stand. Creative for a heavy bike. anybody tried this?

I wonder if you have to take the hard bag off to use it. I don't have an issue with the center stand either. If it is that tough for some, I would look at a hydrolic or electric stand.

Lifting Handle

I was foolish enough to buy one. Looks cool but I never use it as I do better with one hand on the left grip and the other on the passenger's grab rail. Save your money.
