Center Stand

I am looking to buy a used K1200LT. I love the electric center stand. Starting with which model year was this standard equipment? Can earlier models be retrofitted? Do earlier models even have one?
I own a K1100LT and looking at the weight of the 1200 I believe it is very hard to get this bike on the center stand without the help of the electric.

Standard issue with '05 and up.

Gotta have it.. now that I have one. Some have done a retrofit and documented somewhere on this site.

The power stand came out on the 05, As far as retro fitting, check out some of the common threads. As far as putting the bike on the center stand, it actually goes up rather easy, again some threads will elaborate. I solved the whole center stand issue by triking my bike.

I've had bikes that are harder to pull up on the centerstand, and the LT is one of the easiest, it pops up there with very little effort.

The only reason I am saying this is because I dont have an electric stand, of course.

Somewhere on my farkle list it is mentioned, but not in the 'urgent' catagory.

The cupholder is wayyyy better to show off....
