Paddock Stand

I hate Bobbins and I am not over keen on trying a Paddock stand, but am considering giving it a go, want do some mods this year. Anyone recommend a set of Bobbins that look half decent?

Never used a stand, does the stand give you confidence when lifting. I can imagine the first lift the heart races a bit. I've got a scissor lift and the first time a bit daunting, but now no bother. The benefit I can see with a stand versus lift is you got full access to area beneath frame/engine.

What Julioroque said, I take mine out every time and put the plugs back in (although not all the way, as they were a bit of a bear to get out the first time), partly cause I think they look goofy, and because my daughter and I share the same bobbins/stand.

As for confidence, I think its safer than the floor jack I used to use by it self. anythings better than that wobbly setup

Not had any trouble up to now.... I must admit Iím not a fan of Stuartís method in the Video....

The way I do it is to stand at the right rear of the bike, place the stand under the bobbins, and press down with my left hand.

My theory being if the bike falls away from me, itíll land on the sides stand, if it starts to fall towards me, I can hold it up

I always install the Triumph bobbins and use my paddock stand while I have the front wheel in my chock stand. Takes all the worry out of lifting and setting down. When I take the bobbins out, I replace them with a hex head screw, so it keeps the threads clean.

You don't need Bobbins. Bobbins do not belong on a Bobber. I have Bobbins on my Sport bikes. On the Bobber I use 2 socket cap screws. When I'm done doing the work I simply remove the screws!


Oh....and they were free, found them in the spares box!

What's your secret? I tried to lift my bike with my paddock stand while I had the front wheel chocked and I couldn't do it.

Once I have it in the chock stand I just slowly push down and forward on the paddock stand and the wheels on it slowly slide forward under the rear tire until it's off the ground and the stand is firmly planted on the driveway/ground.
