BMW option is over $200,SWMotech $115. Has anyone installed the SWMotech? Is the BMW centerstand $100 better?

Howdy Larry,

I have the BMW center stand and love it. I can't tell you anything about the SWMotech one, I had the BMW one included in the purchase and never went shopping.

BMW says their Center Stand won't touch down until the pegs do. I have scraped (lightly) the center stand when two-up and not had the pegs touch. This was only in low speed surface street cornering.

I've heard you have to do some cutting in order to install the center stand. Has that been your experience?

thx.

cetner stand

There is no cutting required for the R. Straight bolt on. The cutting you may be thinking of is for the S, and you have to cut some of the fairing. There is a line on the underside of the fairing that serves as a guide for the required S model cutout.
