Currently they only list the Speed Triple, Street Triple, Daytona (955 & 675), and Sprint for the Triumphs.

The GB has technically expired from its original period (through November)
However Motomfg has graciously extended the GB through Christmas - so for those who thought they missed it, can still get in.

Good news is you didn't miss it (for your S3)* - see extension updated

- however nothing for Bonneville (nor can I see any way it could)

* edit - sorry, failed to register your '11 MY - no fitment currently for 11/12

DEcosse,

The instructions sheet that came with my paddock stand suggests that I install the bushing where bolt #1 is shown above; however, that seems to be the support for the passenger pillion rather than the rear engine bolt (number 2).

I'm able to remove bolt #1, but #2 is incredibly tight. Other issues are sockets that don't fit inside the bushing, and generally big hands trying to work in small places.

Am I correct in thinking the hardware provided with the stand should go in #2 and not #1?

Thank you

Frog

No - You do not remove 2
(The Sprint kit utilizes that engine mount, because it does not have that #1 Frame/Subframe location)
The upper mount (bushing adapter) goes in location #1 - you will need to replace the OEM bolt with the one supplied in the kit

- the lower pin inserts into the Swing-arm spindle, which is roughly directly below the #1 location
There is nothing to connect here - the lower pin slips directly into the spindle

Looking at your pic, because of the direct connection gear-lever on your model, you might have to use a different hole in the main stand fixing plate so the vertical part of the stand does not interfere with the pedal.

Right! Like a kid at Christmas, I tore open the box and started taking stuff out, trying to figure out how everything lined up. In the process, I overlooked the bolt they provide to substitute for the subframe bolt. Unfortunately, it still doesn't have the nut and washer as mentioned previously in this thread, so headed out to get that now. It also seems I must invest in a 9mm hex drive as the ones I have (8mm, 10mm) don't fit. However, everything else seems pretty straigh forward from here. Setting up the GSXR should only take a fraction of the time...heh heh

The general stand parts are SAE, not Metric so you need inch-size tools for those (hex keys and sockets/wrenches)
The supplied M10 frame bolt should be 8mm Hex
The OEM is T55 Torx.

If you can get an M10 x 1.5 (coarse) nyloc nut, that will be preferable vs nut & washer

Thanks.

I've seen other people be paranoid about being tracked. I figured it was just easy to throw a rag over it to be safe.
