Scrambler rear stand

Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on a good rear stand for the Scrambler? Is there one out their that fits? If not, what do you use to get the bike up for a chain cleaning? It's kind of troublesome and goofy looking to roll the bike up and down the side walk trying to get the chain cleaned and lubed. I've seen all the advocates for center stands, but I really don't want a center stand.

I did open a thread with details of some. There are others, like the clever one on post 6:

Surely as the pipes on the scrambler are up out of the way, any paddock stand that lifts under the swing arm will work. I can use one of these with my Arrow cans as there is just enough clearance.

I tried a standard paddock stand to use on my Scrambler. It's the type with the paddles that slip under the swing-arm. With the rear brake caliper mounted under the swing-arm, it is very difficult to use.

So, I went to ebay bought a motorcycle scissor lift for about $70. Since I haven't received it yet and can't vouch for the vendor I won't post a link. When I get it in hand I'll post a few pics and tell you what I think of it. It's supposed to be here by the weekend. There are several out there. Search ebay or google for motorcycle scissor lift and you can find several from about $70 up to a few hundred bucks.

Thanks you guys. I'm curious how well the scissor lift works. I'm going to choose one of these options soon, and I'll let you all know what I think as well.

Got my scissor jack Friday and finally had a chance to use it today.
These seem to be marketed for cruisers and ATVs for shop use. The little screw jacks with rubber coated saddles are adjustable for frame tubes that aren't level and slide off to leave a flat platform. It's rated for 1100lbs and jacks up to about 16 inches.



It's a bit fiddly to hold up the bike and line up the saddles with the frame tubes if used that way. It would be much easier with two people or, if it works for you, to use the flat platform without the saddles. If I was going to use it flat, I may put a rubber mat or piece of wood on it for a soft platform.



For those like me with very limited garage space, it is nice that it takes a much smaller storage spot than a paddock stand.

Overall, a very solid and stable stand. It came with a t-handle for the screw but I like using a ratchet .

Well, thanks for all the advise guys. I ended up going with the pitbull. It is very easy to use, was affordable, and if I get a Bonneville next, I can simply get the Bonneville accessories to fit the low pipes.

Thanks for the pictures Warrewp. I just got a scrambler yesterday and found that my bobbin pit bull stand wouldn't work for it without the correct fitting. So I've ordered the SS fitting to lift both my bikes, one for each side of the fitting. Very elegant solution. How is your scrambler riding one year on? Any changes to suspension, lighting, or exhaust? I am still breaking mine in so haven't had time to fully feel it out. But it has more pep and a lighter feel than my 790 cc bonneville did.

hey! just saw your comment tmh2111. Glad the photos and stuff could help. The scram is riding great at 1 year. Feels much more fluid and smooth with the higher mileage. I ended up buying a pair of stock silencers off this forum, then doing the bafflectomy on them, and then re-mapped. I haven't done anything with the lights or suspension. I did get bar end mirrors. A rear-fender removal kit is going to happen after my road trip in September, but for now I've been spending money on saddlebags and travel gear.

Ah I shall be interested to hear what you do for saddlebags. I currently am keeping my Hepco Junior 30s and having a new frame welded that is modular..... the top luggage rack stays on all the time but the side racks (and luggage) are removable.... That's the hope anyway. We shall see next week.

I saw the video on the bafflectomy.... more deep warble? I miss my Bonneville sound. It is so hard to get representative audio over youtube.... it makes choosing guitars a challenge too, let alone exhaust options.

I am looking forward to this fluid and smooth quality... I get a kick out of the pep now but the throttle is still jumpy at a young 500 miles when hitting corners at low speeds. That could get old after a while. Still, LOVE LOVE LOVE The bike.
