Centre stand...
on: 10 May, 2020, 04:50:39 PM
So... I've just (I hope) returned my 2010 Tiger to stock height after discovering it had been lowered.

I've installed stock shock mount plates and reset forks to what I believe is standard set up.

This has now left the rear wheel touching the floor when on centre stand though 🤦‍♂️

Is it possible that the centre stand has been lowered as well? Would someone be so kind as to measure the length of the their stand so I can check?

Thanks all

Looks like both stands have been shortened. Find a good welder and see what can be done.
Or you can try to raise the front forks back up about  8-10mm and see if the rear wheel still touches ground. For the side stand you can try to fix an enlarger plate.
Or order new main stand see part#2 https://www.worldoftriumph.com/collections/100058712-0-2?type=tiger-1050-from-vin-287504-to-vin-570058
Or a new side stand see part#7 https://www.worldoftriumph.com/collections/100058820-1-2?type=tiger-1050-from-vin-287504-to-vin-570058

The only time I use c/stand is at home, I'd put a piece of 1" wood under the stand that'll do the job. Only need the rear wheel to clear the ground for lubing the chain.

A thicker bigfoot on the s/stand may work, have to try for lean & pack it up to get thickness req'd.

Alternative is spending loadsa money.

Thanks all.

I only use centre stand at home really, so will use a peice of wood for now. 

I'll order a foot plate extender for side stand though 👍

footplate extender will only add a couple of mm.

Maybe someone close to you has a lowered Tiger but never got around to shortening their stands. They might be up for a trade, your modified stands for their standard ones. :027:
Larger than life and twice as ugly!

It's a simple job to make a thicker base plate from ally, just depends how thick it needs be, 12mm shouldn't be a problem.

Added bonus is the foot area is larger so doesn't sink so badly in soft ground

I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.
