Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

Personally I'd use an Abba stand, far more secure

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

I would make sure to get spools and make sure you do a spool-lift v. a swinger lift... I've only used a swing arm lift stand two times and both times just felt super sketchy. I have a PSR rear stand... can't say that I would recommend it though.. it leans slightly to the right for some reason so the bike is never "truly" leveled out....

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

oooh that's the Abba?!?! Lambchops uses one of them things =) Only downside is the 954 doesn't have the "full frame" in order to insert the hanging pins...

I did see some other one where you can flip the entire bike around, roll it wherever you want, raise the front, raise the rear, raise both, and all sorts of other cool crap... but I saw it on FB so I have no clue what it was called =)

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

^^ Tis the one matey! Quick find to boot =)

EDIT:

BUT! Still begs the question if a 954 can actually get lifted by that thing.... where they mount the pins is blank space on the 54s lol.

I've got one myself, just the plain abba stand, I use it for all the bikes I restore , all the different makes , they use a kit for each bike that usually goes into one of the engine bolt holes. Bill

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

If I ever end up with a proper garage again that skylift is going on my list...

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

I'm thinking that my back may thank me if I got one of those

-2006 CBR1000RR- Jardine RT-1 CF, #$&-%* Brand Air filter, GP shift rearsets, color matched levers (upgrades in progress)
-2002 CBR600F4i (I'm done with upgrades- now transferred to Her)

Because 12,000 RPM makes me feel better

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

Looked over Serenity really well before my ride today, even with the "unique" design for mounting the swinger I have a feeling the pins just go into the pivot (seems like there is room). They said in the video that the pins always go into the swingarm pivot... so it is an awesome stand as long as you are not pulling the swinger off =P

/threadjack

Not sure what the abba costs... but if you afford the skylift I think Jaybird is right that it would save your back during many operations as well as (as the video states) allow for cleaning of some harder-to-reach spaces.

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use

The Skylift is 700 beans (US Dollars) give or take for accessories. They have another doohickey that will allow swingarm removal.

Re: Paddock Stand - Home Use
