Side stand enlargement - Touratech vs. Wunderlich

Just purchased a new 2018 R1200GS!

Looking at Touratech and Wunderlich for a side stand enlarger.

Thoughts anyone?

Haven't installed one yet. I carry an aluminium credit card right now. Surprising how little I need it. There's always a rock, root or beer can around when I need one. SW makes one a lil cheaper. Probably going to make my own. For what it is I don't see giving some one 80$+.

Find someone with a welder if you don't have one and make it, this is the one I made

My '17 GSA doesn't have much lean on the sidestand without an enlarger installed on the bottom of the foot. With the enlarger, it was almost straight up on level surfaces, if there is any slope uphill ( like the crown of a paved road), your bike won't stand up on the sidestand. Just my experience for your $0.02...

Some hardware store aluminum, hardware, and a tap can get you something that works quite well.

On my first GS I used the Altrider enlarger, which is a very good product. This time I bought a BMW enlarger that i think is made by Altrider, but cost about $61.00. Part number is 71602410791.

I have the Touratech, does a good job, but, there is no rocket science involved here...just making the side stand larger... I'd get the less expensive one.

By the way, they are not only for mud, street asphalt on a very hot day can get soft...

Whatever brand you choose, dont forget to put some Loctite on the bolts.
