I know it's a long shot.  Anyone have a modified (shortened) center stand stashed away?? 

TIA

There's a fellow I ride with, who bought a lowered Tiger and spent some time, getting it back to the right height. It had a lowered centre stand on it, so I'll ask him what he did with it  :028:

Pretty sure it was the straight SW Motech one and not the OEM version.

How much did you lower your Tiger? I was running 1" lowering plates for a year but left the sidestand and centerstand stock height. Since I really just use the centerstand for routine maintenance, I would back the rear tire up onto a scrap piece of 2"x6" wood and pop the bike up easily.   :028:

Even with the bike back to stock height, I back the tire up onti a piece of 1"x6" because it getting it up onto the stand so much easier. :001:

One inch lower - and yes, several "helper" options to get it on center stand.  I can park on a 1" sheet of plywood with an ice fishing hole cut out for the center stand and it gives the same effect.  Just thought I would see if anyone had a shortened stand collecting dust on a garage shelf.  By the way, the side stand actually works better on my bike lowered.  It leans too much at stock height IMHO.
