Converting my 2013 set 1 up Comfort to metric gives me 94.9325 cm, but that's with the Trophy sidestand foot enlarger.

I do have metric tape measures, and use them.  The first dimension I gave was for someone in the US, forgetting of course that he's a died in the wool Range Rover addict and he would relate more easily to the metric system.  I've had to convert inches to metric and back again so many times in my last 3 or 4 jobs that I usually get pretty close doing it in my head (careful now!).  I just knew that 2slow would never accept anything but an exact conversion! :745:

LOL yes, I worked (retired now) for safety device manufacturers in the UK and mainland Europe, but for American-owned companies.  Same thing, I had to be able to convert metric to inches and switch between kPa/atm/PSI/Bar in my head when on the 'phone  :125:  At least I could round off to a certain extent...125mm equals 5 inches etc

Once you get the hang of it you can make pretty close estimates fairly quickly.  Haven't had to do much with lb/ft to metric torque conversions either way though, so I'm sorely lacking in that area.  :087:

trophied is right I have my dial calipers out checking the exact measurements now!

I can do the .308 to 7.62 and 3.55 to 9mm the easy stuff.

The odd thing is just how much different the lean is with the small group I have now.
What is the difference if any, did usage change the outcome or can it be mounting points or ware.
I seldom used the pedal as a step to swing my leg over on my 2014 that I got with 7 miles on it.

Iím going to buy every component that is used for the side stand and measure the difference to each compared to see what difference to  I have now.

Itís looking like mine is about an inch closer to the ground so itís leaning more than anyone who has posted as of yet.
I will have to go to the dealer and see what is next.

I certainly appreciate everybodyís input thank you
