First may I say the service from TEC was first class: the main stand kit arrived via a courier within two days and was well packed for transit. TEC kept me well informed of the dispatch and delivery process throughout.
The product came with some instructions which were okay, although the photos could have been clearer. I managed to fit the stand; everything went into place in the end, but the guidance on how tightly to secure the two pivot bolts was pretty vague - some trial and error got it about right in the end I think.
I was a bit disappointed with the fit of the stand in that the left hand side fouls the standard side stand when they are both in the up position. I'll have a look at this in slower time and see of I can grind a little bit off one stand or the other. This does not stop either stand being used, but they do tangle with each other and need a bit of fiddling around to make them work.
The return spring fouls on the right hand footrest (see photo), which I suppose is why it is wrapped in a plastic sheath. It works okay but I wonder how long that plastic sheath will last, and if it wears through whether the spring will become damaged. I suspect I will have to find a better solution in time.
Overall the kit worked, and was a very good price. I was slightly disappointed that it didn't fit better, but overall I was satisfied.
Not quite as well finished as the official Triumph part i'd seen on a mates bike and a bit fiddly to fit. Slight overlap with the side stand. As usual though TEC helped out via email and now working as expected.
I bought my stand new from eBay. Delivered on time. There was some scratches on the paint which I touched up. The stand fitted easierly and is well made. I didn't get the bit of rubber tube to act as a side stand stop , but I used a bit of petrol pipe .The stand stop bracket could really be painted black to match the frame. I'll properly paint this. These are just little niggles, the stand works well and is easy to use, well worth the money.
