    Paddock stands

    Hi there,
    Looking to get some new paddock stands as my others are knackered, anyone used biketek stands with their Mille? Any good?

    Anyone recommend any others?

    Also what's your preference on front stands under the fork or pin under the yoke?

    Cheers

    Hi Shunt,

    I would recomend moto GP stands, wnd under the headstock for the front. I have both front and rear in stock, they should retail at 130 pair but I will do them for 115 + 6.99 post, let me know if your interested.

    Cheers
    Mark

    I had a Biketek rear that collapsed, had just got off track & didn't have the strength to hold it up, was highly embarrassing, but v. funny for the observers, being pinned down by the bike in the garage at Cartagena.

    MotoGP gear is pretty good, few mates have them, Mark's prices look a bargain too.

    Cheers for that does the Motogp front headstock fit under the fairing okay on the 2002 mille as ive just been told the biketek version presses on the underside of the plastics...

    Are these the premium Moto gp stands?

    Sorry to crash your thread fellas, any chance of showing me some routes round there next season? I'm moving down to South Witham in a couple of weeks (my missus is from Stamford originally) so will be prowling around the roads down there. Always looks a bit flat compared to Northumberland but seems to be some pretty fast flowing roads so looking forward to it!

    Cheers

    Paul

    Dont buy a motrax front stand absolutetly shite , about as secure as balancing bike on a fekin expansive jelly. In fact motrax stuff is all shite full stop .We live and learn but usually the learning bit costs money.

    Abba is brill but not so good for track days due to the extra hassle of fitting to the bike, i use harris kit which is the biz, and an Abba for more secure work in the garage.
