The YouTube I posted above does not apply to XR. Thatís OK, the Motech instructions are fine. The install was a piece of cake 🍰.
There are two issues to watch for.
You have to loosen the side stand bolts to add a bracket for the center stand. Then the bike is unstable and could fall on you. An easy way to stabilize the bike is to slide a 5/8 inch pipe or rod through the hollow rear axle and use two jack stands to lift and stabilize the rear. Once the job is finished, both side stand and center stand work well. The Motech center stand is better balanced than the BMW and is easier to use 😘. The spring is a challenge to fit on the Center stand. I fashioned my own tool; took an old wide bladed slot screwdriver and ground a depression in the face of the slot with a dremel so it can be used as a leaver to stretch and attach the spring without slipping off the post that you need to fit the spring end over.
Another testimonial for Motech; I also fitted rear rack, pannier brackets and panniers. Very simple to do and way less expensive than BMW. 😎
PS: It takes a #60 star fitting to loosen the left side swing-arm pivot bolt. Also requires lots of torque to loosen; donít panic it is NOT a reverse thread.😬
