900 GT Pro - centerstand compliment
« on: August 28, 2021, 11:41:49 AM »
I previously had a 800 XRT.  It took a nearly superhuman effort to put it on the centerstand.   They really fixed the problem on the 900 - it is almost effortless.  Great improvement.

 I dont have the opportunity to compare the 800 and 900 side by side, but I think it looks like the stand is now mounted a little more forward than on the 800.

Agreed, noticed this the first time I put it up. No more need to roll the back tire on a 2 by 4 to get better leverage.

I couldn't agree more heaving my Explorer onto the centre stand was a work out on its own the 900 you an almost ask it to do it on it's own!  :492:

Even with a GT Pro lowered by 40 mm, jacking up on the main stand is easy.

Any worries about centre stand clearance when the bike is laid over in a tight turn at speed?  40mm (~1.6) lowered is about what I think the GT low version is dropped from regular height GT bikes.  Triumph will not mount a centre stand on GT low version bikes due to clearance worries.   
Hmmmmm :187:

Not sure how they did it, but as a small bloke (5'6" and 160lbs) I find getting the GT Pro on it's centre stand ridiculously easy. The dealer did tell me that, but I was still gobsmacked when I tried it the first time.

This is very good to hear, the CS on the Tiger 800 is ridiculously hard to use, never had any trouble with centre stands on any other bike. I don't know how that got through the development stage.

That's right. The Low has no main stand. When I drive alone I have no problems with dragging CS, when driving with a passenger it has happened to me a few times that he scratched.
