I tried various solutions but never really found a satisfactory one. I have a few paddock stands of different lengths and adjustability but all foul the rear number plate/mudguard when positioning or require the bike to be upright in order to place the paddock stand in position. I have the Kwak bobbins fitted which are fine but, in order not to foul the silencer are necessarily very short.
I had sort of settled into holding the bike upright whilst inserting the stand then levering it up but then had a major issue when it slipped off and stuck the paddock stand pointy bit right through my Akra carbon fibre sleeve. Not a happy moment! (note; resleeve kit direct form Akra is £200. Painful but £800 cheaper than a dealer supplied replacement end can!).
Anyway, I now use an Abba stand. A little more involved to fit than a paddock stand but does the job safely and securely. For chain lubing I have a little £35 eBay roller thing which is a doddle to use on the rear wheel and, again, has no real downside risk.
