Thumbs up Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

New to the forum and I'm sure there's already a post (or maybe 10) on here, but for newbs to the K1300S like me, highly recommend the purchase, got mine from the Wunderlich site.

Increases the surface area of the side stand by about 5X and definitely helps on softer ground. Very easy install.

Re: Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

It is a good addition. First thing I but on a bmw side stand. If you did not use loctite, double check your screws to be sure they are snug. Good bike too by the way.

Re: Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

When I joined the site after getting my K13S, found this thread started by Jargon, countless great tips.

I love the look of Bob's BMW replacement side stand with welded-on pad. To me, it was definitely worth the $139.

Re: Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

I used a hockey puck then long screws and washer to attach it,
this was after fitting the 25MM lift plates for the rear suspension, the extra thickness of the puck keeps the bike at a less tipped over condition.

NOTE the most important mod you should do to the side stand is grind down the forward stops about 2 to 3 MM,
\ this will let the stand go farther forward about 1 inch and thus make the bike lean a bit more,
and thus reduce the tendency for the bike to roll off the side stand,
as the bikes weight will have to be lifted for the stand to come back to original "always gonna fold position".

Make this modification before you leave your bike in neutral running without your butt on the seat, it will roll off the stand and then you will be buying new side panels.

NOTE never park the bike in neutral,
always use the side stand to shut off the bike with the trans in gear.

NOTE never run the engine without your butt on the seat as the bike will roll off the stand if the wind blows.

Make sure to modify the side stand as outlined above.

fitting riser plates.

Re: Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

ALWAYS shut off the engine by putting down the side stand in first gear. Then look down at the side stand as you let the bike rest on it. Then shut off the ignition. Now go in and get your cup of coffee.

I have a similar model with four screws. Both work well. If you don't plan to remove it, use slightly longer screws. Because they protrude on the bottom, they will become locked and act as small cleats. Avoid the chinese ripoff copies.

Re: Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

I think it is a great addition to my bikes. I had one on my K1300GT and now on my R1200RT. The first one came on the GT. I backed the bike out of the Hog Pen onto the lawn or dirt. Tire pressure check time. Rear done and front check. I noticed the bike leaning a bit further. Oops. run around to side stand side of bike. She was sinking and I could not muster enough HP to pull her up at that point .I watched the side stand sink till she was on her left side. After composing myself and repositioning I had the handle bar grip and grab bar in hand. Butt against the bike and started the lift. Was surprised but up righted her. Whew. Wonderlich enlarger here we come. Now if I could come up with a side stand about 1/2 - 3/4 inch shorter I would be a happy camper. She sits too far upright.

Re: Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger K1300S

For dirt, I carry one of the plastic plates designed for use under the side stand foot often given away as promotion items. I keep it in my tank bag. To insure I don't forget it and to enable me to retrieve it after I get on the cycle, I have a cord attached to the plate with a loop on the end that goes on the left hand grip. I have heard of people using old CDs. Sometimes, there is no substitute for a center stand.
