Or, buy a set of Ohlins.
Much better than the stock shocks.
Already replaced the sidestand (ground down the front foot)
and centerstand (broke the crossmember).
Thought about replacing the right lower fairing.
Wore a hole in the front leading bubble.
Haven't replaced the footpegs,
though the lower outer trim is ground to a 45 degree angle from scraping.
You have not told us what year your bike is, but if it is an older model with manual center stand, here is something else you can do to stop the scrapes.
Get down on the ground and have a look where the stand rubber bumpers are, take a stanley knife and shave them back to half length - no more scrapes (well a lot less anyway)
Wilbers and Ohlins are great shocks and make the LT handle like it is on steroids.
I went with Wilbers as they will adjust height at no cost. Mine are raised about 1/2" over stock and this greatly helps with scraping. The tires are worn over to the chicken strip with no effort and no scraping, and this is usually two up!
Unfortunately, Wilbers USA no longer sells Wilbers shocks but they do service and rebuild them. Since their falling out with the Wilbers factory in Germany they have changed their name to EMP Performance Imports. They are now selling Hyperpro shocks but I have yet to see a model listed for the K1200LT.
It looks like the Wilbers factory has other distributors in the USA. Click here to get to their US dollar pricing. The Wilbers site also lists the following service sites in the US:
