Or how far off the ground should the front tire be when on center stand?
The stand I bought needs to be cut to fit. Hoping to get it right the first time.

I'm right now regretting typing that. Let me rephrase.

My front tire is a little less than an inch off the ground.

You can come measure mine if you would like. But, like my poorly run wire harness, the height could be completely wrong. It is my scooter after all.

Thanks Josh. I measured your stand before and the measurement I wrote down seems a bit short possibly. Then I thought of looking at the wheel height on the stand. I'm gonna cut it and fit it and I may find I need to cut it again. I was hoping there was some recognized "correct" wheel height.

remember that worn rubbers could make it seem shorter
