  1. F650 Twin Discussion (including F700 and F800)
    Anyone know which of these two stands would be the best for a lowered F650GS '09 and best place to go for price. I would like to put a centre stand on my bike and have read that I can modify one to do the job with cutting, welding etc...:think: Any help or advice very welcome. Cheers Tony.
  2. Sale - Wanted - Swap (UK Only)
    Wanted centre stand for F650GS '09 twin. It's a lowered bike but have read I can modify a standard centre stand to suit. Anyone any opinions or advice on SW Motech centre stand v BMW OEM stand?

    I would like a centre stand for my '04 CS . One discussion is which centre stand - and I have read all the posts, concluding that "you pay your money and take your choice. There are as many for a given brand as against. A second issue is whether a lowered seat on an F650CS imposes any...

    Something I worked out and thought may be useful for others. When I fitted a centre stand, my side stand interfered with it. However I noticed that the frame has 5mm tapping in the perfect position for a side stand stop. It may be that mine was missing, and they have these anyway! I then found...

    Hi, I recently purchased a centre-stand kit for the F650 CS Scarver. The instructions from Hepco-Becker are inadequate as is the diagram. Has anybody on this forum fitted one of these kits?, if so could you 'e' mail me a photograph of the completed installation please. with fraternal greetings...

    Hi, I have bought a 2005 Dakar with a kouba link 2" lowering kit fitted which makes it my height and one of the reasons I bought it. I was wondering whether to fit the hebco decker centre stand to make chain maintenance, general maintenance easier. But, I'm not sure if being lower would cause...

    Hi I have a 2002 650 GSD that has no centre stand as standard. However, it is lowered by a couple of inches and I got hold of a new stand from a similar age GS. Fits the lugs fine and looks OK, but on lifting it onto the stand it immediately fell over on the offside. :-( So having picked it up...

    Just bought a Dakar with a lowered suspension ( Kouba links) which is now perfect for my height, but it`s now much harder to get on the centre stand! Any advice? Shorten the centre stand? Swap centre stand for a standard GS stand? What would be the best (and easiest) solution? Any thoughts welcome!

    just noticed that my centrestand is whacking into the swingarm every time i put it up! The loud binging noise should have told me earlier! this has been happening for a good while coz its lightly bitten the arm. Looking on chaingang theres supposed to be an adjusting screw to raise/lower the...

    Hi everyone. I'm going to Nottingham for the weekend at Easter and I am looking for somewhere to park for two nights, i've made enquiries and so far the best quote is £15 per night! £30 for a weekend seems a bit steep. Does anyone know of any 'Safe' places to park around the Milton road area for...

    Hi All, I needed to remove the rear wheel on my CS, but I've not got a centre stand, or the £145 BMW service tool. So.. after a bit of thought, I came up with the following solution: 1. Purchase a 12mm round length of steel 2. Feed the steel through the two centre stand fixing points 3. Place...

    Hi All, On the underside of the F650CS, there are two circular mounting points that are for (I think) the auxiliary stand: Can anyone with easy access to their scarver please tell me the diameter of these holes? Bike is not near me currently and I am try to hatch a cunning plan... :think...

    Is anyone out there using a Hepco & Becker centre stand on a Dakar? I am about to fit on on my bike but have a couple of reservations. Firstly on offering it up to the bike it looks as though it will fit well but seems very large and obtrusive. I realise that practicality has to be a primary...

    Just fitted one to my Dakar and it catches on the side stand. Why is it that nearly everything touratech make requires 'bodging' to make it fit. :wall: Rant over.

    I know Touratech do a centre stand for the dakar, but would like some feed-back on others as well, if you have some? They are alot of cash so i would like to get this right the first time! Thankyou. V.

    Hi I have a lowered 2002 Dakar that I want to fit a centre stand to. It is 220mm from the ground to the bottom of the stand brackets - does anyone know whether a standard GS stand would now fit, or whether CS or other stands would fit? Even if anyone is just happy to measure up their bike...

    Hello everyone, Just tried to fit the Hepco and Becker centre stand to my CS. Firstly the angle bracket holes didn't align with the holes on the CS so I had to open one up, however the more important problem is that when the stand is up it hits the exhaust before the rubber stop on the stand...
