Our BMW Forklift Stand features wider spaced pegs on the swivel that goes under the telelever front end. This allows it to better fit bikes like the BMW R1100, K1200/1300/1600 (’05-’18), and other bikes with similar front ends.This stand can also be used on the R1200 models, but is not a necessity on most of those models as you can also safely use the Hybrid Forklift Front(F0100-100) on those bikes forks.A customer has reported that the R9T Pure is more stable when using this stand than when using the traditional Hybrid Forklift so that would be our recommendation for the BMW R9T Pure.Some customers prefer the BMW Forklift on their Suzuki Hayabusa forks as well as Harley XR1200 forks. This is more of a preference than a necessity but this stand DOES work on those bikes.The BMW Hybrid Forklift is available with an optional removable handle which you can select when you add it to your basket for a charge of only $10. If you select the removable handle model, you can even select an extended removable handle which will increase your leverage considerably.NOTE: When using this stand without the aid of a rear stand, you will want to use this stand at its lowest level of height adjustment. This will allow the front stand to be adjusted lower than our pre-May 2018 Hybrid front stands which will prevent the center stand from coming off the ground when you lift the front of the motorcycle. On older stands, you had to use what we called “BMW Pivot Plates” which adjusted lower, but now the change is in the stand chassis itself.
