    Great tip!
    Still, drilling a new exhaust just because Triumph is unable to make a proper design...

    Yes, you er absolutly right Nik. But I woulden’t like the new can to damaged again and decided to do this mod.
    Friday back to the dealer to talk about the damiged schaft. And would reccomend them to install the rubber block of the 2019 models.

    As most have mentioned, my Gen3 had the same issue. I brought it to my dealer attention. And the fact that the center stand was hitting the swing arm. Somehow the dealer got Triumph to warranty the swing arm. And now I keep a close eye on the pipe moving (which it hasn't).

    Yes, keep a good track on this. It is not only hitting the swingarm But on that spot it is your drive shaft.
    Make Sire that the rubber stop, on the left side of you centre stand is that of a 2019 Tiger. That is bigger then the one on the 2018.

    I have a new longer stop (35mm) coming for my arrow pipe, its not from Triumph to avoid this issue

    I had to buy 4 so may have the other 3 for sale at cost if it works well

    in the short term I have 10mm thick piece of rubber taped to the centre stand to effectively lengthen the current rubber stop
