    Bike on stand.

    So time came at weekend to lift 1100 on to stand to take wheels out for restore. Bugger, paddock stand too small in width on swing arm. So plan b. Abba stand. Didn't really want to use as nearly lost gsxr 750 last winter as heavy bike. Got a bit of a sweat on. Seems ok. Right side part that fits into swing arm pivot bolt is small in diameter for such a big bit of kit.

    Mine is up on an abba stand now, I have actually sat on the bike with it on the stand to set up rear view mirrors and sat nav, never worried about the size of the adapters..

    Just make sure there's no side ways slack before lifting the stand in to place..

    I used a bit of persuasion to widen my paddock stand, works a treat

    Use my Abba stand a lot, yes the right side is small at 8mm but it's snug but it's down to what the 'nipple' is made of. I've managed to lose 2 from the left side, taken the ABBA stand away and left the 'nipple' in without noticing. At some point I've ridden off and it'll have bounced down the road. Only thing I'm worried about is losing another, DOH.
