    At the BMW dealership I noticed the new bikes have a different style center that worked really well when I tested it on the 700 and 800 but the dealer didn't know if one would fit on a bike that the old style center stand came on.

    Anyone happened know?

    If you have a F800GS - they are all interchangeable. Before I put on the center stand on mine, I had both an old and a new version to compare with - they all mount the same way. I went with the old style because it has a bigger footprint, and I can see how it gets out of the way when not in use. But I guess it might be a challenge to get the old stand on if you are vertically challenged.

    I put the new style on my 2010. I did have to grind the tabs on the stand a little. The bike would roll off the new stand way to easy. I remove maybe 3/16 of a inch. Very easy, took 5 minutes. Pm me if I can help more.

    Posting this thread prompted someone local to me who has a new style stand to PM me and offer to sell it to me for a fraction of the price of a new one.

    So stick that in your pipe and smoke it... [​IMG]

    Welcome to ADV, that's how it works. Saving money and improving your bike.

    I would miss Loutre if he would only go away first.

    As I posted in my thread, I don't know why the mounting kit is different between the old and new. I used the old kit on the new stand no problem. Let us know how it works out.

    A more road oriented bike is generally recommended for someone who rides 90% street 10% dirt, though I guess that may be tough to grasp for someone who can't even spell the word "except". :nod

    Bro 90/10 street/dirt? You're the one who is inquiring about a 21 inch front rim and spacers , wants to go 110 comfortably with luggage , and not bottom out on the trails, and have front shock protection , not me. And guess what the 800 does all that . I've been there done that with the 650 and it's the reason I saved up, sold my 650 now own an 800gsa.
