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.
Honda 90 c200, Norton Dominator 99, Triumph (Saint) T110, Triumph 750 T140 ES, Triumph Bantam Cub, Triumph Tiger Cub, BSA 650 Golden Flash, Honda CBF 1000, Triumph Sprint GT & a Tiger 800 XrX low.

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
