I have been looking for a center stand for my 2000 885i without luck.  I understand the 955i won't fit.  I tried to find a part number but was unable through Bike Bandit as it did not show any center stand for the 00-01 885i version.

Anyway, I saw a center stand for a 96 900 Trident and wondering if anyone knows if this will fit the Tiger.  I guess I could look at the frame numbers but wondering if the various models of those years had interchangeable center stands.

885i and early 955i Tigers(Wire wheels) are the same mate, old part no for kit was A9758006. Dont think any other Triumphs use same type.  SW Motech still do a centre stand kit as well I believe

Trying to cross reference parts number between the 885i and the 955I is impossible because although the parts are the same the numbers are different.

The major differences are the motor and the headers rev counter and possibly a few electrical bits and bobs.

I thought I read that the SW Motech would not fit from the 955i - something to do with sump pump.

Hmmm, dunno then but SW Motech list the stand for 99-2004, the 955 didnt arrive till 2001 so ??  Also, as I said the Triumph parts fiche lists the same part no for both, but OK maybe SWM's is different

The SWMotech stand fits the 955i fine.  I fitted one to my 03 Girly (spoked) about a month and half ago.  No real issues other than getting the springs hooked up.

Disregard above I must of been in a fugue when I read through the post.  : :icon_redface:

I can confirm the SW Motech stand fits the 885i, that's why it's listed like it is in their catalogue.

Fitted one to my 885I two years ago now, fits on the frame where the footpegs attach and so is the same no matter what engine is fitted.
