difference is what you said size and shape/design...both Safari and Odysseys use the same mounts now....and from what I have been told the 9 inch uses the same mounts as well....

How about putting the 800 up on the center stand with the cases on.

I'm having a hard time with the trax cases on. I need to remove the left one to get close enough to get it up.
I have the same problem with the Jesse. I have to remove the left case to get the F8 on the center stand.

Lets see a video of you getting the 800 on the stand with the cases on it.

Dude, grab the hand hold next to the passenger seat and pull up as you step down on the center stand. Its not a heavy bike. Hardest part about it is finding the centerstand with your foot gawd damn passenger peg is right in the way.

I would like to see someone do it as well.

The problem I have is the bags force you to stand too far towards the front of the bike preventing from getting the necessary angle to stand on the stand and pull back. Its close but just doesn't work for me. I could set the bags further towards the rear of the bike but balancing the bike is more important to me than not having to remove the bag to get it up on its center stand.

OK I just went out and tried to get a feel for what could possibly be the problem.

All I can come up with is the need, as with any center stand, to get the proper amount of weight "on" the center stand with your foot. There really isnt a great effort in the "lifting" of the bike with your hand.

Left hand on left handle bar, right hand on left side passenger hand hold. Right foot on center stand. Depress center stand till it hits the ground. Use hand holds to keep your balance and transfer all your weight to your right foot while lifting with your right hand.

Up she goes.

My Jesse'e are set about three quarters of the way back of the adjustment. Taking a look at it I can see where it would be possible to have the Jesse's in the way. Im going out now and moving them forward to see.

OK its "a bit" awkward with them all the way forward but still doable. Just move them back a bit till you have gotten the nack of it then adjust. Peace

My Jesse bags are on a F650GS, and all I need to do is bring the center stand down to the ground, and then I stand on the center stand plate while lightly holding the handle bars with my left hand and my right hand on the rear passenger grab bar. Goes up very easy.

The Jesse bags have nothing to do with lifting the bike up on the center stand.

we have Jesse Safari 8 inch on our bikes which we are working on in the garage right now with both on the center stands with bags on...piece of cake even when they are full...takes a bit more effort when full but totally doable.

Which Jesse bags are you using?.

I have the Odyssey II and the problem is that with the left bag mounted I can't get the angle to stand on the stand. I am pushed too far forward. Without the bags it takes two seconds to get the F8 on the stand. I have the bags mounted in the middle position of the mount.

If you have the ability to post a video I would love to see it because I must have the bars somehow installed too far forward or I have a different mount than you.

I forgot to mention that I have the front forks raised 20 mm above the clamp, slightly lowering the bike. I wonder if this makes a difference.
