1190 centre stand


Hello. New to here. Haven't had my 1190 for long, but love it. I bought the standard as I wanted to do all kinds of riding, off/on road. It's great but on road am scraping the centre stand. Am getting it re sprung for my fat ass hopefully next week. It's lifted as high as I can, and I leave it in 2 + luggage all the time.
So what have you done to yours? Suspension/setup
wise.
Am 105kg without any extras.

Make sure the rubber bumper stops are all the way in so the stand retracts as far as possible. That looks excessive to me no matter how crazy you are on the bike so I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't retracting all the way up that it can. Or perhaps your EDS is not calibrated properly or the preload adjuster is not functioning?

Suspensions aside for a moment, check to make sure:
1- it isn't bent and/or twisted - if so, perhaps it's closer to the ground or further out than it should be
2- check that the rubber "stops" which are on threaded posts aren't turned out too far - this would cause the centre stand to be too low when in the parked position

Yeah mine does that too, doesnt matter if I'm solo riding in sport mode, with some nice curves, the side center stand meets with his best friend the asphalt. Just about the same time as the foot pegs touch ground. According to the dealer, it's "normal".

Edit: Sport mode helps a bit, 2 up+luggage not so much.

Agree with the bumper remark. I screwed the bumper in almost all the way so the stand is almost touching the pipe this moved the stand up quite a bit and looks much better also.
Here is a pic of how it come from the factory

This is after moving the bumper up as far as it will go

Was working on bike tonight and snapped some pics of the rubber stop that sets how high the center stand retracts. You should set it so it is as high as possible to avoid touching it down. Mine was this way when I got it, no idea if this is done at factory or dealer setup, but I bet there is some variation.

Anyway here is the pad, a simple bolt with 13mm jam nut. Mine is set so 13mm box end wrench just fits between rubber bumper and frame.


With center stand up, edge of footpad on kickstand looks like it would hit before centerstand.

In this image you can see the two mechanical stops for the centre stand close to the pivot point. My bump rubber is screwed in until the mechanical stop touches the frame, the stand can't go any higher than that. It still touches down cranked over.

I have since had the rear shock re-shimed to give more compression damping which will hopefully save the stand, but then I'll have better handling so will be able go over further....

Thanks guys for the feed back. My bump stop is all way to the top as the one in this photo ^^^. Have just put the original conti's back on to do some more road cruising over Xmas, still scrapes. Just waiting for my suspension guy to get his shit sorted. Apparently the front springs for fattys like me are not available yet. So waiting on that then will see.
