HF Rear paddock stand?
« on: November 21, 2020, 03:30:05 PM »
I'm looking for a rear paddock stand that'll work well with my LC.

The Motoboss one i've had for the past decade+ is too wide for the skinny RD/LC swingarm

Anyone use this cheapo stand from Harbor Freight?

I use one with spool adapters I bought off Amazon. Yes, that is a GL1000 GoldWing on it. I painted the hoop on the ground because folks were always tripping over it at shows. CYA, because they still trip on it.

LC is mono shock, so spool type stand won’t work.

No experience with that stand, but a couple others similar have not impressed me; swingarms tend to slide on 'em, undermining confidence. That said, it's a $36 experiment! Better take a tape measure to HF, as the Elsies swingarm isn't very wide.
Rubber side down!

 I use these spool adapters, but they only cost $16 when I bought them two years ago! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M9MLP6K- I made the spools for the 'wing myself, just a couple chunks of aluminum that I had and high strength bolts through them replacing the lower shock bolts.

Yeah, I got a pair (of clamps I posted) about a year ago for $10 or less. Stand should have came with the spool adapters odd the Harbor one doesn't.

speaking of sliding. on my hybrid i tapped in 2 m5 allen bolts in the bottom of the fz400 arm. use the flat adapters and it slides till it hits the stops. very stable.  just before the axle, so i can pull the wheel.  :twocents:
