    Center C-Lifter

    The R1200C and CL are two BMW motorcycles without a center stand, which can make working on the bike difficult at times. The Cruiser-Lifter is a high quality German made tool that allows you to park your bike vertically. This is handy for checking your oil level and cleaning your bike. Your R1200 will also take up less space in the garage when placed on this stand. Easy to use, thanks to a long, detachable leverage arm and a clever design. A 17mm socket for removing the rear wheel is included.

    • Works well in conjunction with our "Center Stand Dolly" - see Related Products


    • Secure lifting of bike.
    • Robust, galvanized steel construction.
    • Easy to fit with quick release pins.
    • Detachable lifting handle extends up to 500 mm. Handle can be used as a wrench (has a 1/2" head).
    • 4 rollers for smooth + light lifting action
    • With an additional support (wooden block) the bike can be parked for the winter with both wheels off the ground.

    Makes Routine Maintenance Much Easier
    (New Hampshire) | April 27th, 2023
    I've been looking for a safer way of keeping my bike upright during routine maintenance like fluid changes and brake work. The C-Lifter arrived ready to install and mounted in the holes under the front foot pegs in a matter of moments. After a little practice I found it easy to lift the bike myself and sturdy enough to support basic bike work. Very pleased with the quality and ease of use of this little lift!

    R1200 CL lifter is fantastic!
    (Tennessee) | March 7th, 2023
    Excellent product. Had it in use within 5 minutes of unpacking. Very stable once the heavy r1300cl is lifted! Happy with this purchase and product! Will be essential in allowing me to work on the bike.

    A great tool for centering your bike but: -on the CLC, the back tire sits on the ground while the front is up in the air. -Don't plan on using it for a work stand for removing rear tire. the stand does not lift the bike high enough for tire to clear back frame.

    Bought this for my 99 R1200C and it took all of 5 minutes to get on the bike thanks to the easy instructions. Very well made and will last a long-time. Highly recommended if you are looking for a center lift for your bike for the winter.

    Great for storage and working on bike
    | June 15th, 2020
    Bought this stand for my R1200C - works perfectly! Easy to put on and take off and easy for one person to get bike onto center stand. For me, it takes a second person to steady the bike to get it off the stand, as you can't really roll forward like the normal BMW center stands. Price was about right for what you get - very nice quality.

    Excellent product for long term storage and for working on a heavy cl in general. Gets the bike level for oil changes and other services. Easy up and easy down, can even take it with you if needed as it is very compact. I had to wait a couple of weeks for it to be shipped as they where out of stock when I ordered it but it was definitely worth the wait. These come from Germany so sometimes if they are out of stock at the U.S. distributor it may take awhile for it to come back into stock but they will get you one. Very nice people to deal with. I'm very happy with this simple well thought out center stand. My bike is now upright for winter storage and for it's 24k service.

    Gotta Have It!
    | September 14th, 2017
    Yes, its expensive but probably less than BMW would charge for a center stand kit. And it doesn't affect your cornering clearance like a permanent stand would. The stand is strong but it is NOT recommended that a rider sit on the bike while on the stand. Probably more due to the narrow footprint than any shortcomings in its construction. Lean too far left or right and the bike might tip over! The extendable 1/2" drive breaker bar flexes quite a bit in its hollow section when raising the bike. Its easy to drop bike off the stand if you use a short rope or a tie down around the end of the handle and yank upwards while rocking forward and pushing on handle bars (in the sitting position, not alongside the bike). All in all, a nice addition to my tools for the R1200C

    Well made and easy to use
    | January 4th, 2017
    I got the lifter primarily for storing the bike over the winter in the garage. Both wheels are lifted off the ground and a board can be slipped under them. It is very well built and easy to use. As another reviewer commented, I would also suggest that English directions be included in the box, but I was able to get the directions online. Excellent product, I wish they would develop a center stand for R1200 C's.

    The Center C-Lifter just arrived and was set up for use in 10 minutes. I'm learning to work on my BMW R1200C, having learned to change final drive, engine, and gearbox oil without this. An automatic robot system for installation and continuous use when needed would have been very helpful, but in light of present realities I find this is an outstanding accoutrement for my shop. If you'e got one of these classy bikes. it's a great addition. Thanks. Be sure to use the English directions on this website as it comes with only the Deutsch in the box. Recommend your packing guys slip in the English directions into the box with every shipment of the lifter. I scratched my head for about 5 five minutes, having to go back to your site. Onward.
    Worth its weight in gold

    I REALLY needed something for my recently-acquired R1200CL. Hard to "wrench" on that steep side-stand. Used it a few times now. Was expecting difficulties based on some forum comments, but this thing raises and lowers like a dream, No fuss no muss. Easy as pie. Built like a tank. I am thrilled that I was able to score one, as availability seems to come and go. Get one while the getting's good.
