Installation of any centerstand on the K1300S requires minor cutting of the lower fairing along cut-lines provided by BMW. See the cutting template provided by SW-MOTECH and proper look of the final cut line.
Special Note:We do not recommend installing centerstands on bikes with a lowered rear suspension because use on a lowered bike may result in:
- ground clearance & cornering clearance problems, and
- difficulty in lifting the lowered bike onto the centerstand.

Installation was not difficult, but I did have to cut 38mm more off the left side faring than the marking on the panel.
Spring fitting with a screw driver went on 1st time.
Stand is solid and the bike is stable when used. Its a heavy bike just the same and does require a big grunt to engage the stand.
Good service from Twisted and US Post tracking was spot on. (Posted on 11/18/15)
