Electric Center Stand For R1150 RT

Postby mrud » Mon Aug 24, 2015 9:57 am

Can the center stand that is electric and found on the R-1200RT be
retrofitted to my R1150RT. It would be a great addition as I have a hard time
lifting the bike onto the manual center stand.
Thanks in Advance.

Unknown but most likely anything can happen at a price.

Since when has there been an electric centre stand on the R1200RT?

Probably referring to the K1200LT.

Not sure how different the R-RT is from the R-R/Rockster - but I can put the Rockster onto the centre stand simply by putting my weight on it (I'm about 13.5stone).

it's a bit of a knack, but you need a flat floor: just get the stand down to the ground with your right foot, ensure your foot is squarely solid on the stand's kickplate, ensure the bike is fully upright and balanced on both wheels and the 2 feet of the stand (ie - by putting enough weight on the stand through your foot to lift the bike to vertical).

Then just transfer all your weight smoothly onto your right foot. you do NOT need to pull the bike at all, just putting enough weight on the stand will 'push' the stand under the bike.

One day I'll get someone to video this. :)

I know the theory. Sometimes it is easier than others depending on the surface and slope.

As said - it does need a very flat surface!
