Not only did you give an answer to an unasked question, but you also gave the entire internet your favorite combinations for your padlocks!   :138:


hey thanks for pointing that out to me (as if I didn't feel stoopid enough)

now I have to change them all, wonder should I use Independence Day or Cinco de Mayo?

Use a number that means something to you personally and nobody else.  Then donít post it on the internet.  :181:

Awesome - I just picked up this, hopefully it works!

I use a universal paddock stand not unlike the one you have bought - It works fine, just keep as far back as possible, to keep the support bracket away from the exhaust.  I find it easier to raise the stand if I use a block of wood under the sidestand to get the bike a little more upright......

I've got a fair bit of Abba equipment. It's not the cheapest but it's very good quality. The Skylift is awesome but not really in the paddock stand bracket :D
The superbike stand is very good though and with the relevant attachment you can use it to lift the front wheel too.

How did these work out? Do you lift from the swing arm or did you install spools?
Living the good life.
