Paddock stand

So I bought front and back stand and back works and fits fine with bobs. But I stuck on front. These two positions I can get it in and both don't look right. What you all think. I don't like idea all wight on one peg. Or the one on two looks like it going slip as balancing right on

Re: Paddock stand

You mean like the first pic but but other side of fork? Can resting on one lug be any good though. They not designed for that surely

Re: Paddock stand

those are only good for lifting the front, but to change the wheel, it's a no no. Get the one for the stem.

Yeah that's it. It does hold it but I never liked it. You should be able to buy the top half of the stem lift and fit it to the bottom half you already have. That's what I did with mine and I can now get the front wheel off and remove forks if I need to.

You aren't using them right. They are upside down in your pics.

Re: Paddock stand

If you going tell me the gold bit points up then you are using them upside down lol. I have watched vid after vid and it's like the first pic but caliper seems be did on new bikes. Stem I think best for the srads. I don't trust it up and all weight on one lug as that's not they way the desinged so surely not made handle all weight

Correct. Gold plate portion is suppose to be on the bottom. They are used as weight to make sure the two prongs are set up for the initial hook under the forks.

I would suggest to reposition the bottom prong to the middle of the bottom of the fork. The back prong would just then lean on the leg of the fork.

Best to get a stem/head style lift.

That's what I worked out but I shall try it as suggested with one in front of fork. Can one pin hold the whole weight happy then? By placing one pin in front of the forks thinking about it there less chance of bike slipping backwards than forwards.

Re: Paddock stand

That works well for your bike though as you calipia take weight to. The srads ain't like that and are more like the center diagram above Both your pins there taking some of the weight
