Sezzastar: Thankyou so much for this video, just what I was looking for!! Got my
fiirst motorbike and its time to clean the chain!!
americanhindi: Thanks. Nice video. I rated.
computerphonic: Nice video, you sound like Dirty Harry!
chigeechickie: Thank you very much the 2x4 is such a good idea...I was having trouble
trying to hold it vertical and then pushing down on the stand!
9secondsflat: the wood block is a very smart idea, i have seen a few bikes get away from
the owner when they lift it to vertical...once it crosses the center line,
its going over..
webBikeWorld: @dude906341 See the full review on webBikeWorld, you'll need to find a
stand that matches your swingarm type.
dude906341: it certainly did serve purpose and helped me alot ive just passed test and
have a gsxr600 been looking at stands for cleaning wheels, chain, lubing
etc but didnt have a clue how they worked til now thanks again so basically
it just sits under the swing arms on the flat bits and is raised like that
then? Are most stands compatible with all bikes then?
Filo011: ty, nice vid
itfben: nice was actually really helpful (the bit about it being ajustable to your
swingarm size) cheers, anyone know if 2 wheels a side (4 total) are better
addock stands than the ones with 1 roller wheel each side of the swingarm
(2 total on the paddock stand)( is better?
webBikeWorld: @dude906341 Thanks! I'm kind of embarrassed; if I knew this video was going
to be this popular, I'd have done a better job at it. But, hopefully it
serves the purpose.
weepiobair: I own a ZX-6R with only passing my test near on 2 years ago, before then a
125cc which was a piece of cake to lift, with one hand on the rear seat to
stabilise and the other using the paddock stand. I never did like the idea
of trying to lift a 600. But the block of wood is your winning factor.
Thanks for posting.
Fikymyster18: kool vid
Crip Davis: Thank you, I was nervous to put my bike up on the stand - thinking that the
bike would topple over - till after I watched your video.
noisyimp: thanks! do u need to lock the front brake or is it not necassary?
webBikeWorld: Good tip, thanks! Some bikes also have a grab handle for the pillion that
is good to hold on to also.
webBikeWorld: No need to lock or do anything with the front, the bike is lifted on the
rear stand, which holds it steady.
dude906341: cheers will do
winters19: Really helpful vid!!!
animal100000: I hold the bike with my left hand under the pillion strap then use my right
hand to push the paddock stand down.
