Which Paddock Stand?
« on: August 07, 2018, 04:11:24 PM »
Which paddock stand are people using. After getting some bobbins for the new SX I tried my old paddock stand (had it 18 years!) and I can't lift the bike up, the pivot point seems all wrong. I was just wondering what others were using with bobbins that they found worked well.

Cheers.

I use a rear dolly stand like this: https://www.motea.com/en/constands-mover-ii-racing-shunting-aid-rear-wheel-lifter-70000261003

With a front Head stand like this: https://www.motea.com/en/constands-motorrad-lenkkopf-montagestander-front-head-mv-agusta-brutale-800-13-15-rot-358276-0

I also have an Abba stand now for when I next need to remove my shock for servicing!  :028:

Why not buy one of these does every thing not cheap but very good both wheels off the floor and you can spin it round in the garage. http://www.1jac.com/motorbike-jacks-lifts

Abba stand if you don't need to move it around when on the stand.
If your flush look at their Skylift ,!!

Abbastand.  :046:
I've got one with the wheels etc and it spins on it's own axis - great bit of kit. Bit pricey with all the bits but well worth it.

Bobbins sit quite low on the SX so you need a stand where upright legs are quite short otherwise you finish up trying to lift the rear up about 6 inches which takes a lot of effort. If you know a goodman with a welder you could shorten your existing stand problem solved and ££££ saved

Motogp paddock stand from sportbikeshop is the one I have and works fine on my 18 SX as it did on my 17 ninja 650.

I'm sorry for going a bit off-topic... but - why bikes, particularly such large bikes, no longer has a middle stand?
