hi guys i have noticed some of you guys have center stands are they retofit? if so are they easy to install? and lastly where do i get one from?
If you got stand from a breaker, it will need to be for a Triumph with 17" rear wheel. Tridents, early Trophy, early Sprint had 18" rear, thus the pending hernia if you have that stand on a 550+ lb. Daytona 12.:YellowWow: I think the early Trophy had 18" before '95 US imports - all US had 17"? Plain Sprint 900 has 18" I think, tho the Exec and Sport are all 17".I retro fitted one to mine, pretty simple job actually. Got the grab rail fitted as well. But once all in place just could not heave the beast onto the stand. It was almost like the stand was slightly too long and so couldn't get centre of gravity over the pivot point.
99% sure it is the correct stand, and had others take a look at it too.
Anyone with any ideas??
It certainly seems like you have the shorter of the stands. No idea why it would be impossible to raise unless the ride height as settled over the years. I doubt there is a shorter version to be had.DJW
That is a top answer - thanks.
However, I have a 93 D12, which has an 18" rear and 17" front.
Have measured my stand, and I reckon it is 10" from top to bottom, but 9.5" from centre of pivot to foot! It has 09/96 on the foot so perhaps it is the wrong version.
I shall try and source a shorter one (anyone?) and report back.
