Suggestions for a Rear Stand for a 95 Speed Triple

I looked through the custom search and all the posted links pertinent to my "new" bike are outdated.

Any recommendations for a REASONABLY PRICED stand and info on the correct size for the spools (8mm? 10mm??) or a stand that doesn't need spools at all(preferred).

Thanks in advance.

There are rear stands available whereby attachment to the rear swing arm is by way of "L" brackets. Thereby, eliminating the need to modify your swing arm with the addition of spools. Lockhart Phillips offered one before & I've seen others offered by at least one of the big distributors (i.e. Tucker Rocky).

I have one with the L brackets from Lockhart Phillips. It works well, after you get good at weaving the brackets under the swing arm while balancing the bike upright.

Spools would be the best route if you can add them. The problem with the L bracket is that it has the tendency to slide on the swingarm, often putting the rear wheel on the shop floor again.

I just purchased an Abba Superbike stand.

Paid through the nose for it but at least I'll know for sure it works.

I have one of these paddock stands they call them here in Australia and unless there is at least two people they do slip on the rear swing arm. Not only slipping forward but sideways also. Mine has the L shaped brackets as there is nowhere to bolt the spools to use the j shaped brackets. I don't know for sure but I would assume that they would be better if your bike has the holes to bolt them on. Perhaps someone who has these type can tell us if they are better.

I forgot that it takes practice for solo lifting with the "L" bracket stand, but completely manageable (pm me if you need the technique explained as we don't need any dropped bikes out there).
Also, with regards to slip between bracket and swingarm, just make sure to clean & degrease the contact areas first & you should be fine. Replacing the covering on the brackets themselves with heavy duty inner tube rubber could prove to be pretty trick too.

I have one the has two pins which slide through the holes in the rear suspension linkage(maybe centre stand mounts?) rock solid and looks pretty easy to make up if you where handy with that sort of thing.

Sorry, no idea where it came from as it was given to me by a random bloke who came up to me in the street and offered it to me (free) as he had sold his daytona and was sick of lugging it around every time he moved!
