Anyone happy using one of the HF rear wheel stands? For the ST.

Specifically, Im thinking about this one:

http://www.harborfreight.com/motorcycle-swingarm-rear-stand-65620.html

item 65620

and a related question - will these paddock type stands keep the bike vertical, or am I misunderstanding their purpose? Im buying this to avoid buying the center stand. just for simple maintenance.

mods - sorry if this is in the wrong area....

That stand should work just fine, just make sure you set it up properly and check for things that may get pinched, like brake lines.

Low Profile Rear Motorcycle Spool Stand
http://m.harborfreight.com/low-prof...01.html/RK=0/RS=9sMpwdHHws4mpovjDzGIURDmF1M-i had this one for 4 seasons. Very stable and it's aluminum so won't rust,one of the complaints for cheaper steel stands. I used a 20% coupon,it was a little over $30. Needs to be assembled,so be sure it's flat and level before tightening it all up.

I have one, the only thing to change is the padding on the flats that catch the swing arm. Get sone goo contact adhesive and rubber sheeting, even an inner tube so there is no metal to metal contact. I went with a centre stand later, much easier.

I had this stand and it flexes a lot and I never really trusted my 13 Thruxton on it. I went with pitbull stands when my Thruxton R got here. But if I remember right the ST has lines running under the swing arm preventing the use of a rear stand. The HF motorcycle floor jack may be the way to go.

I have it and it's ok - not nearly as convenient as a real stand but better than rolling the bike around. I used it with the sidestand - I imagine having a front wheel chock would make it a bit easier. However, I'm using my standard (non-spooled) Pit Bull stand by ensuring the brake and ABS cables are clear and putting the supports as far back on the swingarm as possible. Pit-Bull claims their older Bonneville stand will work on the ST as well, but you still have the cable issue I believe.

Il existe une béquille d atelier pour chaque modèle spécifique. Ici, celle pour ma Thruxton Classic; mais sur le catalogue, vous pouvez trouver celle qui correspond à votre moto.

I have something similar to badgame for my R, but the rear has an additional attachment so I can roll it around the garage and really tuck it away, and a lower fork mount lift, which is very sweet. Whole thing for under 200 bucks. http://www.kapscomoto.com/product_p/smi3210.htm
