For most parts and accessories I have had no problems with Triumph or the aftermarket shops. But it is crazy how confusing it is to find out if this is the correct part or not. I will say that it "obviously" is not the right part given how it does not hit the correct stop on the pipe, thus the side stand rests against the center stand when up; and it does not lift the back tire off the ground. Most of the specs for the stands say that part number ending in ...8008 is for VINs up to 377k or something like that and part number ...8145 is for "All Bonneville models" (as it says on some sites) after VIN 377k...
But I have just found a few sites that say the ...8008 is the one for the T100. Aarrrgghhh! :y100:
Hopefully, the dealer I ordered this stand from will exchange it, if need be, without any problems. I'm waiting to hear...
Oh, as to the frustrations with installation--it is also about doing it for the first time. I know it will be much easier and take much less time doing it again--very much like home plumbing jobs.
My guess is that you are correct. The T100 is definitely taller than the the SE. The SE has a smaller front wheel. and is lower to the ground. I do not know about the newer standard Bonneville height vs the T100 height.
