    Hi guys,

    Do any of you have any recommendations for a Front Paddock stand for the Trophy??  I normally just put a trolly jack under the sump or header pipe but nearly came unstuck with that this weekend :005:

    cheers

    I've not had the front wheel off on my bike yet, I assumed that jacking it up from under the sump area wouldn't be a problem to be honest, what went wrong??

    Last time I had any type of paddock stand were when I owned sports bikes, over 20 years ago now.

    When I changed my tires recently I simply kept it on the centre stand, took off the back tire then tilted the bike back and placed one jack stand under each fork. It worked great. Didn't even need to remove the fender to take out the front tire. Simply tilted the bike back a bit more and rolled the tire out.

    That's a good tip, assuming that you do actually need to remove the rear wheel too.

    On my previous bike, the clearance between the rear mudguard and rear wheel/tire were so tight, difficult to actually get the wheel out, I use to place a block of wood underneath the center stand just to gain a bit more clearance. :002:

    Hi guys,

    yeah I normally do use a trolley jack under the sump but on this occasion the bike started to roll forward and left as I let it go. It would have fallen had I not caught it. I did have the rear wheel off at the time and one pannier on the falling side. So I reckon I must have had the jack off centre.

    On this occasion I put the front wheel back in and repositioned the jack under the header pipe and got the job done. As I don't want to cause any damage to that pipe of the joint at the cylinder head (however unlikely) I'm considering getting a paddock stand to make sure its stable.

    Like the idea of the axle stands. The paddock stand my tyre fitter showed me had two "pins" on either leg that would locate in the recess under the fork so it couldn't slip off. Seemed like a sound idea but I cant find them online (or havnet yet).

    cheers for your input fella's.

    I use a paddock stand that I bought from Triumph when I owned a daytona 675.   Triumph don't do bobbins for the trophy so I use a thin steel rod through the axle which is long enough for the paddock stand to engage with.  Actually, the steel rod is an old gold club that I cut don.   Works a treat.

    After I bought my Sprint and realized I could no longer use my Harbor Freight motorcycle jack, I was looking for a way to lift mine too. I eventually ran across these plans, and went to Home Depot to get all the parts (they will cut and thread the pipe for you at no additional cost). All together I think I spent $55 for everything, and it works great. While I haven't used it on the Trophy yet, a couple of ratchet straps wrapped around the yoke worked great on the Sprint.

    I have a generic front stand that fits under the bottoms of the forks that I've used on every bike I've owned.  I don't remember where I got it or what brand it is, but they are easy to find and work great.
