Your S1000 R has an especially small side stand footprint and can really benefit from one of these side stand enlargement plates. Hot asphalt or soft sand can cause an unsafe situation when parking on the side stand. If your bike tips over it’s not only a huge inconvenience, it an unnecessary expense too. This Wunderlich part solves the problem by increasing the surface area of your side stand foot. It is designed to fit perfectly and be easy to install and that makes this accessory a sensible improvement for your R.
When installing, apply a drop or two of Loctite or similar thread locking fluid to the retaining screws to ensure that they do not loosen and fall out.
