Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the side stand for the standard height with the side stand for the Low Ride height (T2088061 vs T2088062)?

I would be curious as to the difference.  I installed a Low Ride height side stand on my 2015 Explorer 1200 when I lowered it 40mm and actually had to put a 1/4 inch plate under the side stand to make it work as it was too short.  I was just wondering if anyone has compared these two.

Thanks

Hi Chico , i was lead to believe that riders who had lowered there suspension were putting washers on the side stand where it bolts onto the frame to allow the bike more lean when side stand deployed.

I may be completely wrong  :027:

Hi Alan, I guess you missed my post which stated that I tried the washer "trick" but wasn't comfortable with it. That's why I opted to purchase the bracket for the short version of the Tiger XRX.

Hi Paul
when you say off the 'stop' , what would you mean by the stop. Sorry if this sounds silly question
