I always wanted a BMW, but every one I test rode was too high in the seat for me (28" inseam). I finally took the plunge on an '01 RS with only 16K miles which had been lowered to about 25''. I love this bike, but I have one question: The owner left the original center stand on it after it was lowered, and as far as I can figure, it's just not ever going up on the stand again. The problem is it scrapes on right hand turns and scares the ***t out of me. I want to simply remove the stand, and from what I've observed of BMW engineering, it will not be a straightforward project. Can anyone give me any guidance on removing the center stand?
