MichaelJ. Its not just the shortening of the legs, ( which is not as straight forward as you would imaging because if you look at the shape of the stand, the amount needed to be cut off , i.e not enough strait sections to cut out.) The main problem is the G310R chain roller. The center stand triangular piece (see pic)is supposed to slot in between the chain roller and the frame.The triangular piece i had was far too thick and would not even go in where it was supposed to.
I bypassed this and left it off.The stand fitted, and i even found another anchor point to attach the other end of the double spring, but the makeshift anchor point was not positioned in such a way to make the stand fold up correctly. Plus, obviously as the stand is for the GS which is higher than the R the legs of the stand were so long that it was not possible to lift it on to the stand. Also I may add, that when I installed this I used a garage pit.The bike was placed into position, left in gear, and the cross boards of the pit were carefully removed to gain access underneath. i mention this because when i had the stand fitted,I placed it in the fully down position and was able to see how much it hung down further, than the bottom of the tyres.The amount that needed to be cut out. was enough to tell me
it's not going to happen.Thats why its up for sale.
