800 XCX Leaning excessively on side stand
« on: November 07, 2018, 06:08:03 PM »
I have a 2015 800 XCX
Havent got it long but the more I look at it on the side stand the  more I realise theres something up with the angle it sits at (leans over very far)
Theres nothing cut ,and its the correct stand etc (Its not a LOW model and the stand etc is so far as I can see correct).
Looking at it tonight I can see the little raised rectangle on the rear of the stand appears to have in the past sat square against the stop on the side stand mount when in the raised position.....however now when it is in the raised position it looks like it only makes contact on one side (this would point to a bent sidestand mount and explains possibly why it leans so far)
Pics attached so it would be great if anyone could compare to their own bike when their stand is raised
Thanks in advance

Anybody with an XCX able to check if their stand rests squarely against the black stop when raised ,rather than only touch on one side like mine seems to be doing?

I did find this on another site but hoping someone here can check theirs visually

Don't know whats causing the problem but here's a possible cure:

When the 800 roadie is lowered the side stand is a problem in that the bike sits up too straight! To avoid cutting a bit of the stand the retaining bolts are loosened and washers placed behind the lower bolt which pushes the stand out a bit and job sorted! Perhaps a solution is to put a couple of washers behind the top fixing bolt. Just a thought. Cheers

Cheers.
I thought I could fix it by doing something similar to what you say alright.
I think though if someone can just confirm their stand meets the stop dead square and hits even on all sides, I will know that the mount is slightly bent and I will try a new one.
I suspect something bent 5mm at the mount will equate to something like im seeing  when the bike is on the stand

Have you checked it hasn't been raised by fitting shorter dog bones?

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

I must look into that theory ,cheers.
However I still think at the moment (because the stand and stop don't seem to meet squarely/properly) that the mount is bent.
Still awaiting someone with an XCX to have a peek at theirs and comment
But the dogbone theory would be worth a look too
Thanks

UPDATE (Its Sorted)

For anyone interested (as ive seen a couple of similar queries on other sites)

The sidestand mounting plate (T2085899)that bolts to the frame was bent......nothing the naked eye could see but it was bent.

Bike now OK since the part that I took a chance with on Ebay arrived at 6pm

The silver rectangle on the stand and the rectangular stop on the mount now touch squarely/100% when the stand is in the raised position.

Funny, most complaints on the forum is that the bike sits too upright on the side stand.

 :138: To be honest ,now that its fixed I did think to myself "That's sits a bit too straight for my liking"..........but for fear of being considered  :112: I decided to keep my mouth shut .

Pleased you got it sorted.
Now wait for it to decide to roll off its side stand!  There are no end of threads re how a bike just keels over despite taking time to ensure its secure!  :138:
