Side Stand Enarger Pad
« on: June 03, 2021, 04:05:56 pm »
I’ve read through previous topics, but cant seem to find a definitive answer to my query.

I’m looking to add a side stand enlarger pad to my bike to help when camping etc but they’re about as rare as hens teeth. Has anyone had any success with universal fitting pad enlargers from the likes of Fleabay or had any success with pad enlargers designed for other Triumph models such as the Explorer?

I’d be keen to hear both failure as well as success stories please and any recommendations would be welcomed.

Thanks

It would seem to me that we could find someone with a 3D printer to scan in one of the original made specifically for the Trophy side stand enlargers and print some off at a reasonable price.  I may even be willing to loan mine temporarily for a non destructive scan to establish the design.  If someone wants to run with that let me know.

hi ,

I believe Tralex does a side stand enlarger for the trophy.
might be worth emailing him.

Good point!  From what I've read posted here by some of his customers I wouldn't hesitate to use anything Tralex made.

This was one of the first jobs I did with mine when it left a depression on the drive tarmac, annoying even it doesn't often get that warm in Scotland. Couldn't find anything available in the market, fortunately I had a bit of 6mm alloy plate in stock, an afternoon with basic tools, some 6mm stainless CSK screws  and some alloy "solder" and that was sorted. 10mm clearance between the swing arm / drive casing when up, 35k miles later it's still there, not very pretty as I never got around to powder coating it but it works.

The play at the fork / pivot end, I'm sure there will be some wear but it doesn't get moved under load so I'm not convinced about that. I do know that every Triumph I've had from new had 10-12mm movement (taken up by the wave washer) at the foot end straight off the showroom floor, 1200 SE, Tiger 1050, Tiger 800 XC, Street Triple, Thruxton, Explorer and a couple of others I test rode. I notice this being a Steamer owner, which are notorious for leaning over at drunken sailor angles. I suspect, I have no proof, that the "play" is designed in so that when the bike weight rests on the inner fork sides there is a slight increase in the resistance to movement to reduce the risk of inadvertent movement.

Tralex makes good stuff.
