Hello. I am new to this forum and my new (well new to me) 2008 k1200s. I did all maintenance on my older motorcycle myself and would like to do the same with k1200s. It has the single swing out leg but not enough for maintenance. I saw that there are a few OEM and non center stand options.... But at those prices there are also single arm rear and front stands. Please let me know if there are any triple tree stands available for k1200s and what manufacturer makes it. Thank you in advance, looking forward to this community's infinite wisdom and experience.

Thank you, Michael

Thank you for the answer. I saw Pitt Bull offers a choice for k12/13s. I bought one by brand called Black Widow, sold by discountramps dot com. Triple tree type stand seems to not be available at all for our bikes. I'll have to take a look at a generic front stand that hold the fork by the bottom. I am hoping I can take out the front wheel on that kind of a stand for front wheel maintenance.

No problem using a Pit Bull front stand to remove the front wheel. Pit Bull makes a stand specific to the K1200/1300 bikes. Not cheap but very well built and will last forever.
