K1200R Center Stand Install
Good Morning !!
I just took delivery of the BMW Centerstand for my 2007 K1200R. Went on out to the garage to put it on and ran into all sorts of problems. Well mainly one problem. I could not for the life of me match up the centerstand plate with the main body of the stand. Followed the instructions and everything. Just could not line up the holes for the stand bolt to go thru the frame and through the stand and plate. I finally just pulled the spring off and bolted it all up. Went on fine then. Of course now the problem is installing the spring.
Any one else install the stand and have the problem I had ? If so how did you solve it ? Also if anyone did it the way I just did and installed the springs last, how did you do that ?!?!
I was getting tired and cranky and had to just walk away before I did something really stupid.
