    Triple Tree Stand

    Bike 2016 NC750X DCT ABS

    I bought this Triple Tree Stand for $75. Five pins came with it 18 17 16.5 15 13 (all measures mm) I assume that the fit should be quite snug. There is not much difference between 18 and 17, even less between 16.5 and 17

    The biggest is 18 and is a super sloppy fit, I measured and figure 23 would be a snug fit. Furthermore, in the area is a block that the front brake line and ABS sensor wire are connected to and is right in the way even if they gave me a 23. To make it work I would need to extend the length of the pin such as shown the 48 mm extension would allow the lift to clear the brake hose block.

    So much of this sport is 'making it fit' and I do enjoy a challenge however should I pursue this or just return the stand for a store credit (no refunds).

    I don't have access to a lathe.

    Do you know the manufacturer? Some of them have other pins available for an additional charge.

    Well, since it's an obvious copy of a PitBull stand, might just buy one of their pins or at least ref the site:
    Pit Bull Products - Motorcycle Stands Standard Pin plus #1 Adapter

    Update: #2 adapter adds 4mm diam to the standard pin, around 24mm, so #1 adapter brings it in right about 22mm. Won't fix the brake hardware conflict either as the adapters are 48mm in length; exactly as you measured it; so no additional lift to be had with Pit Bull.

    I found this ad on Kijiji machinist/millwright/welder | welding | London | Kijiji I responded with a link to this thread. After reading he has agreed to make the pin per my drawing for $35.

    I haven't found any repairs (including complete front end removal) that I cannot do with the center stand and a bottle jack under the front of the engine. With the setup you picture, you can remove the sliders and fork tubes, but still not the triple tree for bearing work. For my own use, I would return it. I have a Pit Bull stand that lifts from below the sliders. Sometimes I use it for stabilizing the front end when I change a tire, but if I didn't already have it, I don't believe I would buy it again.

    I use a floor Jack and the center stand, couldn't take off both tires at the same time as easily as I hoped but with some with finesse it worked in the end, I put the rear tire back on for stability before taking my forks off

    Another good example of Canadian ingineering ! Great job Sumo !
    When you are dead, you don't even know you are dead.
    It's only pain for others.
    Same thing when you are stupid !


    2brnut2b, That's the question !
