Main stand Security Locking Lug (Modification & Refurbishment)
R1200GS LC & R1200GSA LC
R1250GS & R1250GSA
Our Main Stand Locking Lug provides a low key additional level of security. One small addition to your main stand provides a secure location to lock a padlock, making it impossible to take the bike off of the centre stand. Throw an alarmed padlock on here also and any thieves should be instantly deterred!
- A small locking plate designed for a 12mm (recommended) or smaller diameter padlock to lock against the main frame of the bike
- Prevents anyone from taking the bike off of its main stand
- looks factory fitted
- Entire stand professionally re-coated (looks like new)
- Minor welding repairs done for free!
A fellow rider approached us recently with what we thought was a really good idea.
It was his intention to see if we could come up with something that would prove to be beneficial to us all in slowing down the possibility of thieves stealing our bikes.
With his very kind blessing we have come up with a quick and easy to use additional security option/alternative that is so good it even looks like it`s a factory fit!
Once fitted, the shank of the padlock locks against the frame making it impossible to get the bike off its main stand. (We`ve used a 12mm straight shank as it butts against the frame better) Obviously if the thieves want the bike they will get it but we think that this will be a great option for additional security that we can all take to make the bike even harder to pinch. I (Mark) think it`s such a good idea that I modified the stand on my bike straight away!
Most padlocks can be used if the shank fits (we recommend a 12mm diameter for snug fitting), even alarmed ones and ones of different security grades can be used!
The work needed requires a high standard of welding, a laser cut profiled part and any necessary refurbishment of your main stand, resulting in what looks like an original factory fit and an `as new` main stand. (By the way the replacement BMW OEM stands are over £200 each!).
We`ve not looked to do this cheaply or tried to cut corners so that it looks perfect and an original part of the bike.
We will require your original BMW main stand (please remove rubber stop and springs) and once ordered, send to the address below.
Approx lead time of two weeks from receipt of your stand.
Any questions please do not hesitate to contact us (contact details at very bottom of page)
Once ordered, please send stand to:

Better than new.
Great product and I can't forget to take lock off before trying to ride away.

Top product and service,
First Class Service
An excellent service is par for the course from Cymarc. Superb security feature that is also unobtrusive. Secondary benefit is having the stand powder coated to help protect it from stone chips and far better than the standard finish. Definitely worth having.
Excellent Service and Product
I recently bought this item after reading about on the UKGS website. Cymarc took my old main stand, refurbished, added the security lug and powder coated it. The stand was returned as NEW. This addition allows me to use a hardened steel shackle which makes the bike immovable due to the main stand not being allowed to retract. Cheap, simple and worthwhile.
