    After lowering my Tiger XRX, I fitted sidestand bracket T2085900. It has more of a bed than standard. The sidestand leg isn't contacting the ground completely but it seems to work well.

    Chico, is that a sidestand from a low (LHR) Tiger?

    Don't forget to lower the front end by at least 10mm particularly if you intend riding off the seal as lowering the rear end affects the steering geometry.

    No Chrissy, that's the side stand from a standard XRX.

    Hi Nimrod

    The bike was lowered by 30mm, I don't know how long the new dog bones were compared to the original ones I'm afraid.  I've now sold my Tiger, sadly, it was just too big for me I've got a Honda CB500x now - which I also had to lower!!

    Thanks for everyone's comments on this, I'll be leaving you since I'm now an imposter!  :158:
