Pit Bull makes a stand that is supposed to fit the Bobber. I haven't tried the Bobber stand although I have used Pit Bull stands on other bikes. I don't know about availability in the UK.

IMO the bobber is a bitch to get up on a paddock stand although there are others that seem to have more of a knack to it. I get my other bike up no worries so I think it may have something to do with the bobbins on the bobber being lower to the ground. I use a hydraulic jack under the swingarm to elevate the rear wheel about 5mm off the ground while the bike is on the side stand. You can then spin the wheel and lube till your heart's content. When you're done just let the jack off and roll the bobber back into its beddy-byes position

I use an Oxford Premium Rear Paddock Stand - works fine but the 'wood under the side stand' trick makes life a lot easier. Cost £46.99 from Sportsbikeshop - https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/mot...nt_prod/180969.

I've also got an Oxford Premium Paddock Stand, but I find it impossible to raise the bike on my own. I need someone to push the bike from the front while I put all my weight on the stand from the rear. It's all I can do to lift the bike at all.

I have tried the wood under the side stand, and while it makes it easier to get it on the stand at all, the initial lift is almost impossible. And I have plenty of mass behind me too...

I use a Pitbull paddock stand front and rear; I found it VERY difficult to do by myself at first, but I have started doing it with the bike in neutral and found that it is a bit easier. That little bit of rock back onto the fulcrum didn’t seem like it should make any difference, but I guess the tire remains in contact with the ground just long enough to make the initial bit of levering her over enough to put a fight. Maybe it’s all mental, but it has been working for me.

This is why I use a lifting jack - dead simple and very easy to use. The bike is rock solid when lifted. I had my doubts as it is so cheap but it works just fine. I use a socket and ratchet rather than the wrench supplied.
