    I have a tiger 900gtpro standard height which is doddle to put on its centre stand....my mate has a 2019 800xrx which he struggles to do the same....I tried and it's not easy. Does anyone out there have a problem. I said to him possibly lowered a little bit. Any thoughts?

    Have to agree, the 900 GT Pro is the easiest bike I’ve ever put on a centre stand. Can’t comment on your mate’s bike, though.

    I've had an 800 tiger in the past and it was a right pain to get it up on the centre stand. I've currently got a 900 tiger and as learningtofly says it's a doddle to get it up ( ooer missus ). When putting the 800 on the stand in my garage I would reverse the bikes back wheel onto a 25mm small plank of wood. That made getting it on the stand easier.

    Triumph thought more about the 900 design and placed the centre stand fulcrum in the ideal position.

    Thanks for that, yes perhaps he should have had a 900, cheers

    I recently sold a Tiger 800XRx after 6 years of ownership. The centre stand is difficult to use, I think is is a tad too long.

    I eventually made a small wooden ramp which I placed in front of the back wheel. Pushing the bike on to the ramp elevated the back wheel by a couple of inches which then made using the centre stand a breeze. Out on the road I made use of undulating ground to again reduced how far the stand would need to elevate the rear wheel. It wasn't ideal but worked, a shorter stand or better leverage from Triumph would have been a better option.

    Glad it's an easier task for the 2020 onwards model. Thanks all
