Prior to giving my review of the MotoMFG Paddock stand I would like to thank DEcosse for setting up this group buy. After seeing a post for this GB I was set on purchasing one regardless of the price break that we received. After assembling and installing the stand on my Street Triple I can say I am very impressed and will be purchasing another one for my girlfriend's bike in the near future.
I received the stand in a well packaged box only 3 days after it was
shipped. All of the stand components were securely packed and protected with a fitted foam insert. The stand comes with all of the mounting hardware needed to assemble the stand. You will need a 14mm(Street Triple) ratchet and 5/16 Hex to remove the Rear engine mount bolt & nut.
Install bushing onto your motorcycle:
1. Using a 14mm(street triple) ratchet and 5/16 hex remove the rear engine mount bolt & nut. You can leave the bike on its side stand for this process.There is no need to support the engine or any other part of the bike while you do this.
2. Remove the bolt completely and reinstall from the reverse side.
3. Install the bushing on the left side(as seated on the bike) by
threading the bushing onto the engine mount bolt.
3. Make sure that the bushing is oriented with the safety pin holes
facing up and down.
4. Torque the engine mount bolt to 48mn (35 ft. lbs) using a 5/16 hex.
Align the adapter plate:
Prior to installing the adapter plate onto the stand align the two
1. Insert the adapter plate into the bushing that is installed on the
2. Orient the pin holes to correspond to the bushing. Tighten into
3. Remove the rubber cover on the swing arm spindle.
4. Align the swing arm spindle with the adapter plate. Tighten the nut in place.
Assembly of the stand:
1. Insert the casters into the legs of the stand and secure them with
the provided bolt.
2. Insert the vertical stand component into the base and secure with theprovided bolt(x2).
3. Using the provided bolt secure the adapter plate to the stand(in slot #3) with an angle appropriate to interface with the components on the bike.
4. At this point there will be some micro adjustments needed to correct the bike tilt and adapter/bike interface points.
5. Attach the tilt adjustment bar to the stand and tighten the bolts in place.
Using the picture that is included with the stand I was able to
guess how much the tilt adjustment was needed and it cut down on the time it took to make adjustments.
Using the Stand:
The instructions indicated that the bike bushing and stand would not
line up correctly when initially trying to lift the bike; I did not find
this to be the case.
If aligned properly the stand should interface flush with both contact
points on the bike.
1. Hold the bike in an upright position and put the side stand up.
2. While holding the bike move the stand into position and insert the
adapter into the bushing. Depending on how you set up the adapter you may have to move the stand up or down to align the busing contact point.
3. Slide the adapter contact all the way into the bushing so that the
safety pin holes are visible.
4. Insert safety pin.
5. Use the stand arm to lift the bike off the ground until it locks into
6. Reverse the process to lower.
Here is a video showing how the stand interfaces with my Street Triple:
