    Hi all,

    Anyone using a paddock stand with their Speedmaster.

    I have the bobbins installed and they fit really low down on the frame. so I am looking for recommendations for a suitable paddock stand and preferably adjustable so I can use it with my Street Triple too.

    Pitbull, I bought the Oxford Premium paddock stand - works well on my Speedmaster 2018.

    Try Tec products (or something like that). They do a bar that goes through the rear axle with cotton reels on it, decent height for a paddock stand.

    Hi @Beerman if it’s not to much bother could you put a picture up of your Speedmaster on your Oxford paddock stand :)
    I’m gonna need to get something for cleaning/maintenance and would like to see if this will do the job on my bike table :confused:
    Cheers

    Bought this one and it seems OK, only problem is I can't lift the back end to get it on the stand, the wheels just don't seem to want to move it over the pivot point.

    Where have you attached to Bobbins, I have used the 2 lower points but noticed there is another hole higher up.

    That’s why I’m asking for a picture :confused:
    If you move the bobbins up to the upper holes and it works could you put a picture up mate :)

    I will put a picture up tomorrow - it's on the lower holes, and I haven't had any difficulty.

    My technique:

    1. Turn bars to LEFT
    2. Put tile or similar under side stand (pic1) - bike leans SLIGHTLY to left
    3. Left hand on seat bars, right hand push stand down. If bike falls (not happened to me - yet!) the bike will fall on to the side stand.
    4. Reverse - bike 'falls' onto side stand.

    You might want to place a plaster where the bobbin may - just - touch the frame, though mine is not marked.

    Hope that is clear!

    Cheers for that mate :)
    Think I’ll get one and I’ll just grind a bit off where it’s near the frame :p

    It probably goes a bit wider than I have it set in the photo.

    I haven’t got bobbins yet :confused: but I could put spacers and longer bolts in to clear the frame :)

    I think that would work. Statement of the obvious, but make sure you buy the right bobbin thread size - I don't think the manual specificies what it is (or I didn't find it).

    Beerman
    You do have to give it a good shove - it's 250gs of bike!
