Rear stand.

Anybody have any good ways to install spools for a rear stand? What has worked best on the 929? Thanks.

Re: Rear stand.

Moved to the FireBlade forum.

Check out the Knowledge Base. There's an article on installing spools on the 929. A lot of us did it.

Re: Rear stand.

I want to install spools on my 929... but I've searched and can't find any where to buy them from. Anyone know where I can get them from and shipped to the UK?

If you're worried about bling, go buy some spools. If you're not, just go down to your local hardware, or bolt suppliers and get some stainless steel bolts of the appropriate length, along with a washer and a nut to use as a locknut against the swingarm. Bolt them up and bobs yet uncle, you've got pickups! You just use the remaining threaded part that's sticking out as your spool. Works no problems at all.

That would only work on a bike that has threaded holes for spools. 929s do not.

Yeah I'm sure it would work up to a fashion. But I've got my bike looking pretty good now and would rather install the inserts and then the spools. Thanks for your reply though.

I got mine from Dan Kyle. He might ship to the UK. Give him a call or email.

Thanks, I'll try DK. I've emailed a few places that have them listed on their website, but nobody returns a reply.

Re: Rear stand.

One word of advice...measure 4x, check that you won't bump into anything inside the SA, then measure 1 more time, then cut/drill

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

I don't think Sato have the inserts though. Damn...

I've also looked into getting some rivnuts and making up a tool to fit them, but I need to buy in quantities of 100. I only need 2 and nowhere locally sells them

Re: Rear stand.

if its just the inserts you need I can sell you them. I got 6 in the package when I bought mine so I have 4 left. I just don't know how much it would be to ship to the UK but it can't be much, it would be a pretty small package.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

This would be great if you would do that for me.

Once the inserts are installed (if I understand correctly) any M8 spools will fit and I can get them here no problem.

Have you got the tool as well to fit them?

Let me know how much you want and how to pay.

yeah I can do that. Someone PMed this morning and asked about them also. Since you asked first I'll send you 2 of them and the tool unless you want all 4?
