No matter how remote the location I've never had to look far for a soft drink can to shove under the sidestand.
Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration since I live in Australia but there's usually a stone or a stick within scratching distance of my foot that I can manoeuvre into place.

I had a fitter/turner friend fabricate a 5 mm iron plate and tig weld it onto my sidestand   

He cursed the job, as he said the foot plate is “forged steel” and doesn’t take weld neatly, but it is very strong and secure

Actually found someone offers a puck with an elasticated cord on it - so you drop it into position on arrival, then pull up as you leave   :002:

Been using similar for 20+ years. 'Twer 50p at bmf rally.

I saw this on another post and managed to print as PDF all the sections that I ever thought I would need, not being a confident mechanic, took about an hour , surprisingly easy for me as a technofobe

Don't use panniers, I found a waterproof 50L roll bag that straps to the back seat. Get everything I need for a weeks tour in there.

Take care when drilling not to break through!

Why ever not? I made one for mine from some 10mm Ally plate and only drilled two holes. They are m4 countersunk allen screws as they don't take any weight, they just have to hold it in place.

I have a gravel drive so I got fed up of trying to kick a bit of ply/allyplate et'c under stand when I get in from work. Plus the 10mm extra height doesn't sound much but it don't half make the bike stand upright more.

I am no expert in this field, but there is a lot of information on this topic right here on the forum, available via search.  It will help you identify the right cable.  I believe https://tuneecu.net/ can answer most of your other questions.  I got a user guide from this site when I did mine.  Hope this helps, and good luck.

@Admin think this should be a sticky. All copied and pasted from this site.

The online manual is available to registered users at:
https://www.tritun.net/tritun/vehicle/lookupForm

Registration is free and the site is pay per use (can choose hour or day).

I managed to download the entire manual in under an hour by using an accelerator plugin for Firefox which is available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tritun-downloader/. Note that Firefox is required for this to work.

This will download the manual in HTML format and then convert it to a single PDF.

The downside of this is that there is no Contents page. So I added one using Javascript to generate it on the fly. You have to use the HTML version for this and it does take a while to load.  I have saved a copy of the Javascript and instructions to make it work at https://1drv.ms/u/s!AklN_n3oWflk7CYA_cgWuKqf7LIU. Suggest you make a copy of the HTML file and the directory containing the files (images) so you can start again if you get it wrong  :002:

There are still no hyperlinks within the document. I'm afraid you will have to add those manually if you want them or use search  :010: (E.g. "See Tank Removal")

Here's a link to the original thread on the forum if you are bored. https://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,39758.0.html
 
 If someone has the manual downloaded please contact me, knowing the size would be helpful.

Could use Dropbox and  I'll also place it on my google drive.   If you could provide a Dropbox link to your pdf. Many thanks fellow tiger sport 2019 owner
