    Hi There,

    I am new here. Switched from 10 years Ducati Multistrada to a S1000XR gen2. Why? Well.... it was time for a change and the new V4 just didn't do it for me.

    I'm looking for a sidestand extender, to make it LONGER not wider. Because the lean angle is just to much. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum ToniS and great choice of bike.
    Search “sidestand extender” and numerous articles will come up, no doubt all brands of extenders have been purchased by forum members.

    Interesting point that I recently found out to be meaningful too XR lean is too much if the ground is even a little bit off camber in the direction of the side stand even for me, I was at a BMW dealer ship with my mom and was getting her to sit on all the different bikes so we can get an idea of her sizing and the lean on most BMWs was prohibitively much even if the bike itself wasn't too tall, she just simply couldn't lift bikes like the F900R or Lowered S1000XR off the side stand, the only 3 bikes she said she would be comfortable with were the G310R, surprisingly the R1250R (was fairly straight up on the side stand and the low weight because of the boxer helped), and the S1000R but that was borderline, besides with my recent experience on an S1000R I'd not recommend that bike to her or many people at all.

    If you find something that doesn't look absolutely monstrous like these sort of "adjustable stands" are I'd be interested because it's causing problems even for me on uneven ground. From what i've seen nearly all BMWs use the exact same stand with a few exceptions, maybe you can even interchange them from different models to fit something that's longer.

    I know that Marc Hooton (Cymarc) made a 'stacked' extender for the 2015-2019 model (looked like crap though)

    Check out NippyNormans too.

    Welcome former Mr Multistrada!

    I also have a Gen2 XR  and wanted a longer side stand. The only product I found that does this is Cymarc's S1000XR GEN 2 Side Stand Extension Plate at...

    https://www.cymarcbikeparts.co.uk/s1000xr-gen-2-side-stand-extension-plate-1267-p.asp

    Their product consists of 1 each 2mm topper, 1 each 5mm full hoop plate, 1 each 5mm non-hoop plate without beveled holes on the bottom, and 1 each 5mm non-hoop plate with beveled holes on the bottom. The two non-hoop plates will add 10mm to the length of your side stand.

    If you have a center stand, that's probably the best you can do because a side stand with additional non-hoop plates will hit the center stand rather than folding into it's fully retracted position. I say probably because one additional non-hoop plate might work. See pic below; this is without any additional plates.

    If you don't have a center stand, and never will, then you can keep adding non-hoop plates and longer bolts until your side stand is the length you want. Cymarc will sell you additional plates (contact mick@cymarc.co.uk), just make sure you get the non-hoop plates without beveled holes, buy appropriately longer bolts, and simply add the additional plates between the other two plate types.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello and welcome, as soon as I saw Zwolle thought of my Dutch mate who loves to remind me that their are trilingual/bilingual and English men  :001:

    Must stop looking at the latest Duke Pikes Peak  :015:

    Still getting my head around taking my mom to a BM dealer to sit on bikes  :745:

    Need to dig some photos out of my cheapo side stand solution.

    My much modded K1200r Sport that needed some side stand assistance because of the rear end being jacked up.



    The cheapo solution....

    Recent over here from a long line of ducatis aprilias and mvs. I will say the 2013 multistrada was the best bike I ever owned. It'll take quite a bit for the BMW to knock it off my "best bike" podium.  I really am enjoying the XR, well built and fun to ride.  THe deal sealer for me was the fact that a bmw dealership opened up 5 miles from my house. For the past 20+ years I've had to go to atlanta for my duc service (120 miles each way).

    She is trying to replace her Ninja 650 and one of the bikes we had in mind for her was the G310GS since she wants something light that's good around town, but I wanted something I could nick on a weekend to take off-road, since the mini GS ended up being to tall for her we ended up going through all the options BMW has and sadly they don't cater to short people very well and she is very conscious about feeling comfortable with the bike when stationary... So right now we are sitting at either getting her a proper BM with all the tech and goodies (R1250R) or if we're going the small and cheerful route then the G310R is probably not the best bike in the category in which case we'll have a look at what other brands offer. I don't think there is anything wrong with taking my 51 year old mum to help her find something fun and exciting to do  :008: :008:

    Anyway before this goes too off topic, if your feet reach, you can't go wrong with an XR :P Sidestand be damned  :745:
