I have a lowered 2016 R1200GS.
Even though BMW apparently supplied the bike with a shorter side stand, it is still too long in some situations. For example parking at 45 degrees on the side of a paved road proves impossible in many cases (depending how much the road is crowned) as does parking in some parking lots that are not perfectly level.
My friend has a lowered 2013 R1200R and she has no problem parking in similar situations.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? What's the best solution; remove the side stand and shorten it and reinstall?
I don't think BMW forgot to install a lowered version of the sidestand because I am sure the regular length stand would not work at all!
