I need advice please? I want to buy paddock stands for my bike, but looking at how many varieties there are, I'm unsure what I need? I don'twant to buy the wrong ones, so which ones do I need please?

If you want ease of use go for the one's that use bobbins that fit to your swing arm and have a hook attachment! the ones that lift under the swing arm can be a right pain to get in and out!!

Thank you x

Tab do you know anyone with them ? then you can try to use before you buy

Quite like the stability of the ABBA one myself.

Got a decent one from Aldi/Lidl but only fits a box section swingarm

Oxford stands come with both the bobbin hooks and the flat plate type swingarm holders. been using them for years and they've never let me down

So many different ones, and also some guys say don't get one? Confused dot com!

Tab, go to your prefered bike shop and ask if they could show you both types, then ask for their advice. Spesh has pretty much the right idea I think, the type that is adaptable to bobbins or plates.
End of the day, it is your pennies so get as much practical advice as you can.

Hi Tab, a lot if bikes without main stands , my own included, can be fitted with aftermarket main stands. I think mine was about 85 quid.

A bit more useful than a paddock stand .

Thanks 666, my exhaust is in the way for a centre stand, or so I've been told. Once I get on it, I will ride it to a bike shop for advice.

Thanks all for your advice x

I was told by a mate yesterday if you fit bobins on your bike put bike on side stand as normal then put small car jack under the bobbin on the other side at the rear and lift bike up you only need 5mm under the wheel to do jobs like clean and lube chain or cleaning the wheel. I would not advise removing the wheel like this but for the small jobs simple

It doesn't work JP if the bobbins are made from cake.
