    Need Side Stand Measurements

    My dealer says I need to replace my side stand and supporting bracket because they are bent. Of course, they're saying I must have abused it by mounting the bike via the foot peg and I'll fight that, but, before I get the new stand, I want to find out how much longer the standard side stand is versus the lowered XR side stand.

    The extreme lean angle of my lowered XR while on its side stand has me wondering if I would be better off with a standard side stand even though I have a factory lowered XR. I have confirmed that my lowered bike side stand measures 9.75" (~24.8 cm) from the center of the bolt hole to the bottom of the foot when measured on the side of the stand that faces toward the underside of the bike.

    I'd like at least one person with a lowered XR to confirm my 9.75" (~24.8 cm) measurement.

    I'd like a couple of you with standard XRs to provide the same measurement from your side stand.

    Remember, exclude anything you've added to your side stand. For instance, I removed my Cymarc extension plate before I measured my side stand.

    In case someone has uninstalled side stand, I looked up the part numbers, the standard side stand is part number 46538404584; the lowered XR side stand is part number 46538404585 (annotated as "For vehicles with lowering [X499A (+)]").

    Thanks.

    P.S. FYI: I have 26,817 (~43,158 km) miles on my '21 XR.

    No idea on actual measurement but I have soupy lowering kit on my bike, dropped about 25mm and still have std height stands. Side stand is spot on (have seen my mates factory low nearly topple over with luggage on side stand is so bloody short), centre stand works fine just a little more effort required as lifting it higher now.

    Interesting. This suggests I could use a standard side stand on a low XR. Thanks. I still want the measurements so I can simulate the longer side stand on my bike to observe the resulting angle.

    I got a Gen 1 but it leans over so much it's barely any effort to push it over the side stand, and that's on flat ground I'm honestly having anxiety attacks if it's even a little bit down hill towards the sidestand and almost always try to park opposite way to make sure, but I hate these stupid extensions and massive sidestand feet with a passion (no offense to those that use them, but they look horrid)...

    As per this thread https://www.s1000xr.uk/index.php/topic,4851.msg53912.html#msg53912 I now also jammed a cut-to-size wheelweight into the sidestand of my gen2, works great so far. Lean angle 13 degrees now, it was less but the softer metal will deform a bit in the first days

    How can mounting it via the footage bend the side stand unless you are a sumo wrestler....
    It will no doubt have been designed to support a rider's weight when mounting the bike, because that is what some riders do.

    I'll give this a try but despite assurances I'm still concerned it might roll off the stand easier... hmmm what to pick... Tip over sideways, or roll of the stand  :745:

    Hey folks, lots of interesting info and ideas, but I still need help as originally requested...so, please...

    My lowered bike side stand measures 9.75" (~24.8 cm) from the center of the bolt hole to the bottom of the foot when measured on the side of the stand that faces toward the underside of the bike.

    I'd like at least one person with a lowered XR to confirm my 9.75" (~24.8 cm) measurement.

    I've also got a factory lowered XR.

    Measuring it whilst on the centre stand gives exactly the sme measurements as you.

    Here's a pic to prove the length of the side stand.



    The next time I have the bike out, I'm going to check the lean angle when I have it on the side stand. I sometimes feel like it leans w a a a y too far over  :005:

    Perfect, thanks for the confirmation. My lowered XR leans way too far too, but at this point, I don't know if my bent bracket/side stand is contributing to that or not. Please post your lean angle when you have it and how you measured it. Thanks again.

    Now we need a couple standard XR owners to measure their side stands.
