It's never enough  :084: :007:

Join the club. Never with any bike I spent more than with the S1000R.

Having read a thread on here about fitting the black RR '15 side stand, I did just that! 15 brand new off ebay & 45 mins of my time. Just had to swap over the bracket but looks so much better in black.  :028:

Yeah, you need a CT454B. Which size did you buy? I have a CT 125B sitting waiting for me to fit but I'm concerned it is so very small. I have the bike booked in the dealership on Wednesday for a stalling problem and thought I might quiz them about any potential problems of fitting a small reservoir.
This mod is well discussed on this thread;

I have had the CT125B on my bike for the past 5000 miles and no issues so far. I will have to keep a close eye on the level when I put new pads in the front just to make sure that it doesn't fill back up too much, but apart from that she is good to go.

I went for the CT127 in black which I think is the bigger one but the size looks about the same as standard , what adaptor pipe did you guys use the one with the biggest bore ?

That's good to know. The CT125 is really neat

I can confirm that this mod leaves your bike with the engine management light on. I have now gone back to OEM. Do not do this Mod!

That's a damn pity, the stand looks so much better in black
