    Paddock Stands

    So after I put a new tyre on the front wheel, I have come to the conclusion that a paddock stand is required, using two axle stands is a bit cumbersome to place while lifting the front end up.  :151:

    So are there any recommendations as to what to buy, need to be able to dismantle it for storage.     :152:

    You can put a hydraulic jack under the three pipes at the front of the bike.  Use a jack stand at the same location.
    Good luck

    Don't be too quick with jacking up the bike under the exhaust... :151:

    Not keen on putting a jack under the exhaust pipes, it strikes me that there would be a lot of weight placed on the pipes entering the cylinder head, not a good idea, could cause the pipes to split, so I will give that idea a miss.  :110:

    Ride Magazine did a feature on paddock stands a couple of issues ago , I will have to dig it out and see what they tested and what the prices were like.

    I just wondered if anyone had got a stand. :164:

    I have just read RocketSteve post, definitely not putting any weight on the exhaust pipes if they are prone to splitting.

    I've been thinking about a front paddock stand myself lately, not so much for removing the front wheel but for when/if the fork seals need replacing.
