If you have anything but standard pipes, you'll need to double check that you have room for the center stand. Some of the 3-1 aftermarket headers block off the center stand option (and the oil filter, believe it or not). Sebring/Triumph accessory parts are supposed to allow stands to fit.

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??

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 looked in my spares/junk box and I have a center stand I think from each (Trident 18" & Trophy 17"). The Trident's stand is about 10" from the pivot point to the foot by my rough estimate, and the other 9.5" (I guess that makes sense from a geometry perspective) :) If you inadvertently fit a center stand for an 18" rear Triumph on a 17" Daytona 1200, you'll probably need to begin sourcing a truss soon.

My Trident goes up on the center stand with little fuss but its 30 pounds lighter than a D12.

Most stands have the part number on the top of the foot after you scrape the grunge off so you can look it up and be sure.

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.

Cheers

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.

Mebbe Trev at Sprint Manufacturing is worth calling - he has a bunch of stands for T3 and has been helpful in the past to sorting issues out.
