No other BMW centre stands will fit unfortunately. A lot of people are dissatisfied with BMW as it was originally listed as an optional extra but then deleted from the list. Hopefully in the future, Wunderlich or Touratech will produce one. By the time BMW start producing them, some bikes may be worn out!

Agree, I went with front & rear paddock stands. The combo is still about half the expected price of a fitted centre stand.

I have front/rear paddock stands now but may go for centre later, I'm lucky a small fab shop near by owned by keen bikers will make anything for a bike, a fab shop that bends tube and tig/mig welds would find it not difficult to make a centre stand, they are safer when out and about than the prop stand, I think.

Hi G, I have that jack, its well made, do you take off the plastic skid pan from engine and jack the engine up ? I think there is official jack that picks up on the 4 points under the engine ?

Thanks for all your suggestions but, I don’t
want a “work stand/center stand” I want a
Center stand attached to the motorcycle.
While on the center stand the bike takes up
Less space and looks better

Hi Flab, according to BM`s web page for accessories for the 310, there is a centre stand 46538560650/77258566523, but BM know nothing of these part numbers, some guys say there is no fittings on the under frame to fix a centre stand to but when you guys get time get low and have a shufty there are fittings on mine I'm sure, please let all know that's interested in centre stand.
