I have a 2000 K1200LT that has an attached sidecar. I have other bikes for other tasks so this one is truly a dedicated sidecar rig. No plans to remove the sidecar. Can I permanently remove the centerstand? I'd still leave the sidestand "just in case". I don't recall any safety switch tied to the center stand and the only thing of concern that I can think of is the muffler bracket thing that is in the way when doing a gearbox oil change.
