    I finally got my 2018 Speed Triple RS (white) and now realize that my old stand won't work with a single swing arm on the Triple. Any advice on a good stand.

    Much appreciated.

    The great thing with those Abba stands. Is you pretty much have a stand for life. If you change your bike? Just purchase the appropriate fitting for the frame on your new bike.

    I've got this one - with the wee wheels it works as a mover as well.

    Constands.

    I've got a warrior universal front stand. Ace bit of kit for working on the front end. Especially if you need to remove the forks?

    Congrats on the arrival of your shiny new Speedy, when I bought mine I fitted a rear wheel spindle and converted my existing paddock stand to hooks, easy and much cheaper than buying another stand.

    That was why I looked at another stand - it took longer to get the finishers off and on again than to clean and oil the chain.

    I've got finishers on mine and they take maybe a minute at the most to remove?
    Or are different types of finishers mounted differently?

    simple to use and pretty cheap the warrior paddock (similar to conti) stand under £50,not as solid as Abba (i have both) but for the money no brainer,removed rear wheel twice using this stand for tyre change and caliper clean up.

    alright for oiling the chain but no good for removing the wheel

    For the most flexible option...but at a cost, is the Abba Skylift

    This is my prefered choice,
    https://www.rg-racing.com/browsebike/Triumph/Speed_Triple/2011/SS0032BK/#prettyPhoto
    its a spindle that fits through the rear axle and also adds a bit of crash protection, if your current stand accepts bobbins You loose the pretty finisher on the right hand side, but I found it felt far more secure particularly when lifting on and off using my conventional paddock stand, than the single sided R & G paddock stand I had bought (this is great quality but sold now for the reasons mentioned) I also have an Abba stand and whilst it lifts both wheels and I use it for winter storage, its a pain removing the finishers each time or just leaving them off, also if you are particularly tight for space where you store the bike the Abba can be a real faff as you have to get to both sides of the bike. s

    Can't beat the price for that especially if you already have a traditional paddock stand.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I went for the R&G rear axle sliders and will use my current stand until I can splurge on a better option.
