    Side Stand Enlarger

    We have been offering side stand enlargers for BMW motorcycles for many years and we offer model specific enlargers for nearly every model since 1994. Our design is simple, easy to install and time tested. The side stand enlarger is made of machined anodized aluminum and it features a serrated edge to provide a better grip when deploying the stand.

    Considering the weight of the K1600 GT and GTL, the original side stand plate at roughly 2"x 2" is on the small side to offer secure support, especially when parking on loose ground or hot asphalt. Our side stand enlarger increases the surface area by approximately 50% and provides the needed support and peace of mind. The part is precisely shaped so that there is no interference with any other part of the bike and it is also visually unobtrusive.

    The three clamping screws hold the enlarger firmly in place with no drilling or other modifications needed. Be sure to place a few drops of thread locking fluid on the screws to avoid them backing out and the part falling off. We offer thread locking fluid under the Related Products.

    Note: Please see the Related Products below for the optional Spike Set. The spikes not only offer additional grip with the ground, they also add some height which can reduce the amount of lean angle.

    ATTENTION 2016 K1600 OWNERS: This part will not fit the latest sidestand of the K1600 made in 2016.

    *Installation estimated at 10 minutes for this part may vary depending on skill level.

    K1600GTL Side Stand Enlarger
    Absolute necessity for the big BMW- fits, looks and works great..BUT be aware LockTite on ALL three screws is an absolute MUST! Somehow only got on two and found the enlarger decided to take a vacation on a trip up the mountain! So now I am on #2. Highly recommended

    What Were the BMW Engineers Thinking??
    What were the BMW engineers thinking when they designed the "foot" for the K1600 side stand? It's way, way too small! The Wunderlich Side Stand Enlarger addresses this shortcoming - it is well-made and very easy to install. As the product name implies, it ncreases the footprint of the stock K1600 side stand. Since installing it, I no longer worry about using the side stand. Great product!!

    K 1600 Slide Stand Enlarger
    This is a must. I've used them on various BMW models and they are the first thing I get when I buy a new BMW bike. They are simply perfect, they really work and can save your bike and you from some awkward situations.

    Great Add On
    Works great, huge improvement for your 1600GTL, highly recommended

    Review of Side Stand Extender
    An excellent and well manufactured product. It exceeded my expectations; works exceptionally well.

    precision product
    Well made and precision machined from high-strength aluminum with steel screws. Careful, though, of the included directions. Mine said the screw heads were 3 mm. In fact, they were T25.

    Works as expected - had same on 09RT. Easy to work with Wunderlich America.

    The side stand expander took less than a minute to attach. Looks great!!

    Fits perfectly
    This little device works great and installs in seconds. I would give it 5 stars if it wasn't priced so ridiculously high!

    Excellent value
    As mentioned in the previous reviews, this is a great product at a great price. Easy to install---works great and lasts a long time!!

    Easy install, saves the day
    tighten 3 screws to install - quick and easy. Parked on asphalt on a hot day and returned 90 minutes later to kickstand (w/Enlarger) buried 3/4 down. Imagine if no Enlarger, the bike may likely have been lying down. So glad I invested a few dollars. No longer have to worry about carrying a separate foot pad.

    Bob Simpson
    Well designed product and easy to install
    I have not even used it yet and I already feel more secure. The OEM footprint is just too small.

    Kickstand Pad
    Excellent product, I feel more secure in parking my bike most anywhere. Large footprint makes for surefootedness.

    Does exactly what I need it to...
    Easy to install, and does exactly what I needed it to.

    A nice stability improvement
    The stand enlarger was designed and made with accuracy. It was therefore easy to install. It offers better stability for softer grounds and it is also an improvement for firm ground. The looks of the bike are not affected. Actually, the manufacturer should produce the bike with a larger stand.

    Best looking Side Stand Enlarger in Black that i could find. wish shipping was cheaper tho

    Side Stand Enlarger
    The product was just as advertised. Good looking fully machined piece that fit very well. Functions exactly as advertised. Easy to install and no effect on deploying the side stand after installation.

    Dan Rosenthal
    I'm very pleased
    The pad was easy to install and the kit was complete. It is out of the way and adds to the bikes stability when parked.

    Good product
    The factory pad for my side stand is small enough to make me uncomfortable trusting it on pavement in Tucson, Arizona on a 110 degree day. This side stand enlarger was a perfect fit, well made and doesn\'t interfere with anything on my K1600 GTL. It works exactly as advertised.

    Increased stance
    This product is excellent as it increases the footing of side stand for this motorcycle. Install is easy and use is even better. Great product I would recommend all K 1600 GTL and GT riders purchase.

    A simple, refined part in keeping with Wunderlich
    Another sleek and elegant Wunderlich part that's a day one must have. Why this isn't standard equipment on the pricey K1600 bikes just escapes me. While slightly more expensive than similar side stand enlargers, I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. Installation is easy at five minutes or less. Put a small dab of red Loctite on each screw and you're done. The serrated edge is also a nice touch befitting a well made Wunderlich part.

    Edwards Schwentker
    Side Stand Enlarger
    Provides side stand support on soft ground and does not get in the way when the side stand is up. Do not understand why BMW does not make the standard side stand with a larger footprint.
