    Hi, I own a 2018 T100, what options do I have for lifting the rear wheel to make cleaning and lubing the chain easier?

    1. Is there a paddock stand that fits?

    2. Does a centre stand lift the back wheel off the ground?

    3. What do you do?

    All suggestions and experience welcomed.
    Regards, James.

    Hi Jimmy, yep you can use a paddock stand, lots of choices on ebay. A centre stand will also do the job. You can also use a bike lift, there are various options and makes available; just search for motorcycle lifts and you will get lots of choices.

    I use a motorcycle lift for my thunderbird LT. There is thread on the forum covering ways to lift your bike. Good luck with finding your solution.

    Hi Wessa, thanks for your post, I tried my old trusty paddock stand only to discover that the Vance & Hines peashooter exhausts prevented me from using it. Is there a specific type of paddock stand which works around the silencers?

    Not sure Jammy, I've not had a T120 or used paddock stands as I prefer the bike lift that I have. This works well with my LT and in the past on my street twin, speedmaster and I hoping will be fine with my new speed twin. I'm sure there will be a T120 owner along shortly who will be help you out.

    Edit: I found a picture of my street twin on the lift..

    When I become World Dictator it will be a capital offence to build a motorcycle without a centre stand.

    I have a 2017 T100 and the factory centre stand but if I want to have the back wheel off the ground I have to use it on top of a 3/4in piece of ply... Probably the wrong part no fitted as some I've seen lift a bit higher. May well get pieces of steel welded on to the feet of the stand at some point. Not sure about a paddock stand due to the silencers and the underslung rear brake - my simple Micron one certainly won't fit anyway.
