Help I've had an "incident"
I hit a piece of road debris yesterday. I never saw it and have no clue as to what it was. I was looking about a mile down the road at a truck towing a hay wagon that was turning wide into my lane when bam the rear of the bike lifts off the ground and starts to come around sideways on me. I got her shut down ok. But my center stand cross brace has a large crease in it and is seriously tweaked.

So my brothers I need a center stand that will fit a 89 R100RS. Can you help a fellow out?

I just bought a new centerstand for my K75....they are only $125 or so from Chicago BMW. I can't imagine the Airhead one is more expensive than that.

If you hit something that bent you centerstand :huh , I'd be spending some time looking up at the bike from the ground and see what else got hit. Spokes or rims still ok?

Thanks, I've gone over her pretty well. Whatever it was missed the front wheel and the oil pan,but caught the centerstand left of center. the impact drove the stand up into both mufflers putting half dollar sized dents in them. I have also found some cuts in the rear tire. The bad part is the mufflers are Bubs and they are no longer produced.
