Would it be possible for you to give us a closeup shot of where the pin fits into the triple? Also could you comment on how you cleared the brake line that runs under the triple clamp.
I'm sorry about being so late to reply to this. I haven't been in this section for awhile.

Here's the detail shots. I did check about the stand hitting the brake line and it "just touches" it, but no real force applied. If I'd made the pin for this bike I'd make it bit longer, but I had made it for my Bonneville and it worked, so I haven't made another. I did measure it and it's basically 27mm. The stem hole measures just under 28mm, might actually be 28mm exact if I could get my calipers lined up perfectly. But a 27mm pin would the one to look for.

There is a rubber plug in the stem that needs to be removed first.



Here's the view of the bottom of the stem where the stand pin goes in.



And here's the pin I made for my Venom stand. It came with a range of pins but of course most haven't been what I needed so I've made a few of them now for different bikes. I think maybe one of the original pins has fit some thing I've had.



Here's how it fits against the brake line. As mentioned, it does touch but there's no real pressure on it. If I'd made the pin about 5mm longer it would have plenty of clearance.



And a view from the backside showing how the pin fits into the stem.

I just got thru using my new Venom and it was very easy.  Just be careful when letting it down as the bar can slap the fender when the pin is removed.  $73 delivered thru Amazon but I had to buy a 27mm pin.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, the Abba stand is brilliant and can be adapted to many different bikes. This one has the wheel kit as well so I can move the bike around any way I need to. With a few different adapters  you can strip the bike right down to the frame. Yeah, I know thatís not the Z900 but you get the picture.

That looks really solid and great to move about with.

Is that a CB 400/4 SuperSport front wheel on the left?

This.  I have the same sans the wheels.  I will say it again and I hope I do not offend anyone (like last time, LOL).  This stand is $249 shipped, it makes 0 sense to get a Pitbull for close to $200 FOR REAR ONLY, almost $400 if you want the front too.  This would do both, in addition to attaching to the pegs for swing arm removal.   This is by far the best there is in design, and minimal storage space too.
