BURSIG Center-Lift StandWith the arrival of the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT at the office, I quickly went shopping for a bike stand. Not wanting to mount a bunch of unnecessary parts to the KTM, I chose to go the other route: How much can I take off to highlight the Super Duke’s beautiful lines? One part I needed for basic maintenance was a BURSIG stand, however, and it lives in the garage.

Developed by a former racer in Germany, these stands have become the go-to solution for factory race teams to weekend warriors. It’s surprisingly simple, too. The one-piece construction has four legs spread out on the ground, each with heavy-duty caster wheels at the end. The vertical column with the lever holds the bike-specific adapter plate (which comes preinstalled). Assembly takes less than 30 minutes. Some models, like the 1290 Super Duke GT, require a frame sleeve, for the lift’s pin to slide into, to be mounted with a replacement engine bolt. Some fine-tuning is required to get the two attachment points to line-up; then with a little practice, it’s quite easy to lift the motorcycle to one of two possible heights with one motion. Once on the stand, the bike is secure. Chain maintenance for example is a now a breeze. Available for many different motorcycles.

BURSIG stands come with a lifetime warranty, and if you buy a new bike, you can send back the old adapter plate and exchange it for one that fits the new bike, for no extra charge! I’m always a fan of great customer service.

As long as I can grab a handlebar, I'll ride it. Trail riding is becoming my favorite hobby as of late. Hope to meet you on the road.
