I knew that Id read somewhere recently about another instance of this happening. However, I think it is the same event that was posted on the Tiger800 Facebook group. Judging by the the floor and other background items in the photographs it certainly looks like the same sidestand.

Mine is a brand new 2019 XRT,
I have only ridden it for 80klm's and the stand has play in it, so I would say that is normal.
I gotta say I don't like alloy stands, it looks weak to me.

Thinking of fixes for this..

If anyone can make a top half from steel howz bout this for an idea..

If the original stand was cut two inches above the spring mount, this remaining lower section could be held inside a sleeved steel top half by the available two inches and the spring tension.
For those that want more or less camber, simply make the cut to the alloy higher or lower.
I don't have access to a steel fab shop to make a prototype - but wish i did!!  :183:
