Hi,

I'm after a paddock stand for an XB12R. Any advise on the best one to get? anything extra need adding to the bike to make sure it fits OK?

Thanks,

Paul

OK I know this thread is eight years old but neither manufacturer seems to be selling/in production. I’ve read all the linked threads in a post in another thread. I’ve seen a s/h Abba stand but apparently cannot be used with Buell XB.
I’ve seen the US manufactured stands, e.g Pitbull and have noted the shipping etc.
I contacted the seller of this Lightning https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Buell-XB-12S ... SwpaZbhZ7r
who offered to make one similar to that shown in the pics, but how to get the wheels out if there are bobbins in the axle?

Tried to adjust clutch today with SWMBO holding bike up, not really a long term solution. Need a new front tyre so would like to get it sorted.

Previously had a bike lift but as Maz pointed out elsewhere lifting the Uly with a Remus exhaust had predictable result, not quite crushed but dented. I notice standard exhaust has jacking points will a lift work?

Can anyone advise? Tia

Yes, you can jack up on a standard silencer, I used to use a trolley jack. If you want a front stand that lifts up from the fork bottoms it needs to be height adjustable as the forks are different lengths. Can't remember the make I had, but it was cheap and cheerful. Just about any rear stand with flat pads should lift the rear end, by locating the pads under the swing arm.

Thanks, I have a trolley jack, covered in cobwebs, knew it would come in useful one day!
Also downloaded manual, thanks guys, and notice the stand in the Appendix as part but as you say looks pretty standard.
