I had always attributed this to Triumph using the same stand as on the Bonny, despite the longer Scrambler shocks, now I am wondering about that. So ... Scrambler owners who still have stock length shocks, does your bike lean drastacally on the side stand?

Yep, mine has the lean. I noticed a couple months ago it was getting worse and found the kickstand bolt had loosened up and was about to fall out. Thats when I decided to check all the bolts on my bike and found that the front sprocket was also loose as well.
