2001 BMW R1100RT Side Stand - Where to Buy?

I have purchased this bike and it needs a new side stand. Where is the best place to buy a replacement or is there a "creative way" to fix it? I call the part that is broke...where your boot hits it to bring it down. The extension piece has been thrown away. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I appreciate the response. I called him and he has me on his list.

I wouldn't put much hope in that list. You'll have no idea when they might get a bike, or how many people are in front of you on the list. I was on two of their lists over ten years ago. Still waiting to hear back.

Take it to a good welder and have a new metal loop welded on.

 

Or order a new one from BMW. $168. Easy to replace.

 

The "creative" way to fix it is to clamp a Vice-Grip pliers onto the side stand, wrap a piece of duct tape around the two handles so it doesn't spring apart. I rode from somewhere in South Dakota to Missoula MT and back to Chicago with my bike like that.
