Re: K1200lt Electric Kick Stand Backup
Apparently, BMW had so much confidence in the electric center stand they did not put a foot lever on it so you could lift the bike if your electric stand motor or pump broke or your battery was dead. He has added a removable lever that can be attached to lift the bike onto the center stand. Genius. My pump has gone out and I have had to roll the rear tire on a 2x4 and piece of plywood to be able to get the clearance to put it on the center stand for maintenance.
