OPEN BOX ITEM - Open box item, brand new, uninstalled, and in original packaging
Your big BMW engine commands respect off road and on, but you can help it retain that dignity by providing it with a side stand foot that reflects its size. The AltRider Side Stand Foot Enlarger for the BMW R 1200 GS Water Cooled provides your bike with a larger footprint, so it can easily keep it from sinking into hot pavement or losing its balance on soft, uneven terrain such as dirt or gravel roads.
After seeing many imitations of our previous designs, AltRider has taken our side stand foot design to the next level. The highlighted logo was strategically designed to keep weight down by removing unnecessary material from the bottom plate. Keeping the weight of the side stand foot down is critical because any added weight to your side stand can lead to the side stand dropping during a ride. If a side stand drops while the bike is in motion, it can deploy the side stand switch guard, cutting the engine without warning and lead to a potential crash.
Made from hefty 1/8 inch stainless steel, this foot features a 3D tread that echoes the aggressive AltRider Oil Cooler Guard design, while providing traction for your boots. It is the most ergonomic design on the market, allowing easy deployment of the side stand while still on the bike. The AltRider foot also clamps down on the actual foot of the side stand with Torx fasteners, which means the piece will remain tight even after months of use. No more rattling or stripped fasteners!
Side stand shape can vary regardless of year or model, please double check fitment chart to confirm what foot you need before ordering

Available in Black or Silver
Note: The shape of the side stand has changed over the different model years of the R 1200 GS. To see which side stand foot you'll need, view the image showing the difference between model years. If your side stand is shaped like the example on the left, choose 2013 or 2015 (depending on your bike) from the Model Year drop down. If it is shaped like the example on the right, choose 2014 from the drop down.
