48Nm is correct per the service manual. I would, personally, make sure the bike is supported more adequately than on the side stand using a wheel chock or a rear paddock stand. If only removing the one engine bolt, I don't believe there should be an issue or need to support the engine, I believe it would be supported well enough by the remaining engine bolts to not move. Surely someone here that have already installed the adapter could substantiate this.

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.

I finished installing mine last night. I am in the process of writing up a short review and install instructions. I will post it with a short video of how the stand looks this evening.

Thumbs up

I got my stand yesterday and assembled it last night. As noted for the Street Triple my Sprint also requires some movement of the handle to initially line-up the pins. I wasn't aware of this and wasted a lot of time getting it so the pins would slide straight into place when the stand was moved in towards the bike. That resulted in a severe nose-down attitude when the bike was lifted. Well, only the back of it was lifted - the attitude resembled a Stuka dive-bomber! Eventually I got the adjustment right for my Sprint but it was a real pain. It still needs a couple of small tweaks but it's close so I was able to try out the new toy.

Verdict: very good. This is going to be a useful piece of workshop equipment. Big thanks to DEcosse for arranging this group buy.

I posted more info on the Sprint forum.

It's amazing how fast you can go when you take your time.

Good report Champ - thanks for inputs here and in your other post.
I'm pleased you share my own review of the quality of this equipment.

And as you say, the wheels are just a delight

You can spin the bike on the spot so this is the tool for maneuvering a bike into a tight space.
I wonder how close the final result will be to the recommended set-up (per the horizontal adjustment rod length) in the guide?

It might be a good starting point for all, to at least set out with the recommended set-up, while recognizing the the required technique for engagement & raising. That last bit is key element.
And only then make changed as might be required if tilt needs fine-tuning.

Isn't the Bursig one from Germany? Maybe a cheaper option for you over there. The main reason the US seller gave me as to why their's is so much more than the MotoMFG one was due to the shipping over here from Germany.
