Xcx low center stand
« on: March 20, 2018, 07:23:30 PM »
I have a 2017 xcx low and want to put a center stand on it. I think a xr standard height is about the same. Does anyone know if an xr center stand will be OK on a xcx

Center stand pt. no. A9778004

Thanks

I would be careful using a centre stand on a low bike, they are exceptionally difficult to use. I snapped my Achilles' tendon on mine so removed it so I wouldn't be tempted to try again.  :182:

You simply put a piece of wood under a tyre. Thats what I did with the Sprint for 7 year. Saves buying an Abba lift like I have now and lets face it, most folk use the side stand for parking up. The only thing you have to take into consideration is ground clearance.

Yeah but he's looking to try the roadie stand on an XC (albeit lowered)
IIRC the roadie stand is 25mm shorter
Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Thanks for your feedback , but let's try this again.... I am sure the XR center stand will fit but the bike height may be an issue. What i need to know is what is the distance from the center stand pivot to ground on a standard XR when upright .... That pivot hole is on the rear break foot peg bracket.

On my XCX low, the distance is 23 cm

I live in southern ontario and there are very few Triumphs XR or XC to get that info

thanks again

Newbie here, new to triumph tiger 800
I recently got my hands on a 2016 800 XRX and realised it's hard to put it on a center stand. I asked the PO if it's a low version, but he never confirmed or denied. Can someone post whats the length of the center stand on standard roadie version.
Looking in the parts catalogue, there is low option.

I just measured mine for ya, 2016 std hgt T800 XRx, on the stand, pivot to floor is 307mm. This puts the rear wheel 55mm off the floor.

I can't measure it not on the stand.....it'd fall over.

I have the 2016 Triumph Tiger 800 XCX Low and I put the center stand from the XRX on and it works great.  This is the one I bought.  The kit comes with everything you need to mount it.  You will not need to adjust anything, or remove anything.   
I have no F'ing idea why in the world Triumph or anyone would ever make an adventure bike without a center stand.

Good luck.

Is it a struggle to put it on center stand ?
