Wrong side-stand?

It's a genuine Triumph part but does this kickstand belong to the '98 TBS? When its folded in it's impossible to reach while seated. I have to get off and dig my toe in there. BTW it doesn't appear bent or damaged in any way. Thanks in advance for any help.

The 98 TBS had a very short side stand. Looks exactly like my 98. You can hook it with the inner side of your boot heel with a bit of practice. I see you have a center stand. That's the first one I've seen on a 98 TBS. tommyturbo2

Length does matter

The 98 TBS does have a very short side stand. My bike sits in a much more upright position since I changed to a later version.

I find this odd. My 99 TBS was never any trouble. I guess there is a difference between the 98 and the 99. My tang looks like it's a lot easier to get to than yours.

World of Triumph shows two different sidestands.
One is before and up to 89736.
The other is 89737 and after.

Maybe the wrong one was put on yours at some time? Just a guess....

You may want to try a new style of riding boot. Maybe something with a more pronounced heel?

I have a pair of those. It's still difficult to get the sidestand on the TBS down.
