Alloy sidestand leg
« on: September 15, 2021, 07:50:43 PM »
I have had my alloy sidestand leg snap on the second day of owning my 2019 Tiger XTr. Does anyone have an idea for a more robust leg than the standard alloy one?

 : :005: yikes, how did that happen?
 Those stands are tough.
I would think that would be a warranty call if within 2 yrs

Unlikely you will get any replacement suggestions as the side stands don't really give any problems so no call for alternative made replacements. There was a member at the beginning of the year concerned about the angle of lean of his bike on the side stand and it did turn out to be a bent side stand bracket, not the actual side stand leg. He renewed the bracket and it sorted the issue.

With the Tiger being a fairly tall bike it is quite common for lots of us, many 100kg+, to actually constantly stand on the left hand footpeg to get on and off the bike while it is on the side stand and even this extra loading hasn't resulted in reports of snapped side stands.  :027:

That's very rare. Could you have fractured it earlier and then it finally gave way when you dismounted? Certainly shouldn't have happened with normal use.

That's quite worrying as I normally have to stand on the LH footpeg to get on to my tall XCA. I may use the centre stand in future :084:

Loads of us do it and most on bikes far older than 2019 and in 6yrs+ on this forum this is the 1st incident of this that I can recall. I even do it, as last Megameet weekend, when fully loaded with top box and panniers. I suspect there are a few others out there somewhere who have had the same failure but clearly not enough for it to have filtered down to the likes of this forum as a potential design or manufacturing issue, which if an issue I'm sure it would have. :027:

I'm reassured by the statements. Probably a single incident. I was concerned with it being alloy it might be a weak point but if people are climbing on using the peg regularly I'll get an OH replacement and not worry. The thing I had noticed Triumph charge 68 genuine part. Used - the likes of e-bay. 78. One to watch out for.

Considering the stress that must have been put on the stand to fracture it, for peace of mind, you might (though more expense), besides new stand and pivot bolt, want to consider renewing the side stand bracket bolted to the frame. :027:

I think it must have been a casting fault it appears to have snapped along a fracture line below the bolt. And to be honest I average 12 1/2 to 13 stone so presume not that much pressure. No other load on her, didn't even have the panniers on.
