Don't know for sure but they sure look about the same.

Part numbers are different.

GL1100 side stand; 50540-463-000
GL1100 side stand; 50540-MG9-000

That doesn't mean theat you can't swap them, but I have a feeling that the 1200 stand is a bit shorter.

The problem is my gl1100 stand leg and my gl1200 stand leg measure the same, but my 1200 lays over quite a bit farther than the 1100. It appears to me as if the 1200 needs to be about 1.5 inches longer. Does this make any sense to anyone? Btw, thanx in advance for any and all assistance. Ron Dilliott

Probably just a different mounting point on the frame, or maybe slightly different frame geometry.

My 85 1200 I think tilts over too much on the side stand too, but it has been rewelded and I just figured it was set at the wrong angle. Does anyone know if you can purchase a longer one? I thought about making a longer one or cutting it and welding in a spacer to make it longer.

Anyone done this?

Which way are you speaking about leaning? When I got my '83 last year, I was concerned as it sat upright too much and I was concerned about it tipping over to the right. I thought that the sidestand was messed upsomehow but I didn't see any apparent damage or modifications to it. As it turned out, it was the suspension sagging not the sidestand. When I aired the shocks up to max, the bike sat as it should. With the new progressives I installed this spring, this leaning is no longer an issue.

Just my .02's worth.
