I have longer (Thruxton/Scrambler length) shocks in my bike and would like a longer side stand to reduce how much it leans over when parked. Would the Thruxton or the Scrambler OEM option be better suited for the T100? Any aftermarket options?
Thanks!

Monitoring this thread as I have some 350mm Hagons ordered and already have a taller rear tire. I have done some research, but couldn't find much. At least one forum member installed a Thruxton stand but I believe he had some issues (or at least inconveniences).

No modifications other than bending the extender? I thought I read somewhere they would not bolt right on.

No, it bolted straight on for me. Other than that extender it was plug-and-play. I've had to replace the the spring, but I don't remember if that was routine maintenance or I needed to buy a Thrux spring for the exchange. It was a while ago.

Here, found a post from when I did it. I make no mention of the spring, so I assume it wasn't required: https://www.triumphrat.net/air-cooled-twins-talk/210302-sidestand-kickstand-extension-for-bonneville.html#post2509360

The mag-wheel ones aren't exchangeable with the spoke-wheel versions I don't believe.

Put a Scrambler sidestand on my Bonneville, bolted straight up with no problems.
But I run a Dunstall (same as TEC) 2-1. Wouldnt work with the stock mufflers as the extender handle would foul the muffler and be impossible to reach.

As alternative to swapping stands, you can also add a foot pad to the stock stand or make one yourself out of something like Hockey puck rubber. A skill saw or sawzall will cut that up easily to get the shape as needed.

That’s a great point. I may go the extender route on mine mainly to enlarge the foot print. Wonder if I can find a hockey puck in Mississippi? Ha.

It bolts straight on. Sometimes the "rubber baby buggy bumper" (bump stop on the frame) is a little off centre but it doesn't make a difference. I went the other way with my wife's Thruxton to Bonnie height. I had the nob extended to be able to get it down easier with riding boots on.
