Thanks for the information Z, I think I'll go for the 40 mm kit and a short side stand, now that I can see they're not frighteningly expensive. Not too worried about by toes dragging just yet, though did go through a few boots in my younger days...

I am very happy with my 40mm lowered XCx 1200,  not had any issues with the height on cornering ( and I do push it a bit %uD83D%uDE1C)   I did 15mm on the forks.  Handling is fine..  i would like to find a fix for the side stand, as she is a bit too upright and prone to have the odd lie-down.  Suggestions very very welcome.

I had the shorter sidestand of an XCx fitted.
Only downside is that it leans a LOT :005:
Especially with a full tank, 5 kg tankbag and 2 15 kg side cases it's a beast to get upright :009:

I have not used one but these look well.

The Triumph list price the the short side stand is £75, probably doesn’t include BAT etc but seems like a good price, part number here:- https://www.worldoftriumph.com/collections/100076334-0-2?type=tiger-explorer-xrx-from-vin-740277

This is for the current model, not sure what fittings required for earlier versions.

2016 XCA did struggle with height. Fitted 20mm Lust  kit. MADE big difference,tiptoe to flat foot.  Would advise purchase. Love the Explorer.
