I have been in contact with both. The dealer is on my side and is prodding triumph to take the issue seriously and get me a replacement or get the right part.

center stand

Thanks guys, my cstand has none of the rubber bumpers, and the dealer did the one recall on the stand last summer and put on a heavier spring. The cstand leg bottoms hit the underside of the swingarm where I now have some serious gouges from the centerstand legs hitting it.

Sorry to hear this, as mine is my daily driver your issue would be crippling for me. I've read a few of your posts & responses, and I'm just wondering. Seeing as how you do a bunch of dirt, could it be the stepper motor? I've read that if it gets loaded up with a bunch of dirt (we sure have some fine grained stuff, so...), it will do what you're describing. The solution always seems to be to clean it up, then lube it up good. Also a pre-filter seems to help.

2 cents worth for you.

Old style center stand with upgraded spring on Roadie.

Hang on let me go down and check my swing arm............

Nope no dings in the swing arm. I have about an inch clearance
between the feet of the center stand and the swing arm.

So far so good. Of course I don't do any off road work either.

I know mine is due a replacement centre stand, but to be honest mine is fine. It doesn't come near the swinging arm and works perfectly. I added an extra rubber section to the bump stop. Am also due the clutch return spring. They can do that but they can leave the centre stand alone.

I'm not wild on the new center stand design. With bumper stops mounted on each leg, it basically rides on the swingarm all of the time and uses the rubber bump stops as a cushion. Even though everything else looks the same on the cs it seems harder to deploy then the older design and harder take off. I don't know if its my imagination or reality, but either way I don't like the design.

Installed new center stand a couple days ago. It took around 90 min. to install. Not difficult just a little rigamarole. I wouldn't think there was anything wrong with the design unless I was told there was

Anyone know if there a way through tuneECU or other means besides dealer tool or having the dealership do it to clear the service interval indicator?

Reset

Go to posting #6536 here, Birdy68 describes how to do the service indicator reset with freeware Torque and an android cell phone with a bluetooth dongle (whatever that is).

I believe Dealertool or dealer are your only options. Dealertool is pretty cool.

Just out of curiosity, do you have both keys on the same keyring?

No only a dealer or using "dealertool" I prefer dealertool for servicing as I like the layout better. Use tuneecu for mapping only.

Here's the link to 6536: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=6536

And he says:

Do you have an Android phone?
If so:
1) Download and install Torque - it's FREE - onto your phone!
2) Buy an OBDII Bluetooth Dongle.
3) Plug the dongle into your diagnostic plug on the Tigger.
4) Switch on your phone & bluetooth
5) Start the Tigger
6) Pair the Bluetooth device & the phone
7) Start Torque (on the phone)
8) Select 'Clear Warning Codes'
Despite what the above reads, I was also under the impression you need dealertool to clear the service indicator. I'm almost up to 5k miles though, and I have all the above mentioned, so I'll give it a go when the time comes.

BTW, I don't think you need to start the bike as mentioned in #5 to see codes. You can just turn the ignition on. Of course if you want to see parameters of certain sensors, you'll have to start it. If you don't start it, pull the headlight fuses to keep the battery from draining (this is more important for tuneecu).

fragile indicators?

So my new tiger has shed 3 of 4 indicators in under a week. Seems like the heat has made them super soft and high speed wind or light pressure makes the rubber crack and tear. My front signals are being held on with gorilla tape right now, and right rear is duct taped to the side of the bike. Anyone else having problems with this? Bike has not been down. Its almost as if I have a turn signal gremlin chewing on them at night!

Other than that. I LOVE THIS BIKE!!
