    the old Abba stands are very good, but tres' expensive ( I've got a Bee Gee stand-geddit!?) which is excellent but you can't get them anymore..shame! But paddock stand should suffice..I guess you're just after making sure there's not too much pressure on the near-side fork seal, however most guys I know just use the side-stand without any problems.

    Abba Stand

    I use my Abba through winter along with a front paddock stand so both wheels are off the floor, if you leave em on that is..

    Abba stands are top kit, especially when you need to take wheels off as it doesn't foul the chain adjusters like my paddock stand.
    Don't store mine but think you could leave it on one OK.

    I have an Ultipro, I like it better cos it has a safety foot to lock it in position so there is no way your bike gonna fall off if you get Jiggy with the front, It fits my Busa as well as the Ninja I had before the RSV without any adaptors.

    Also cos its galv steel there is no rust and the paint wont chip off

    Heres a moody picture.....

    Must say not heard of that one. Very similar to the Abba though.

    Well.
    When i bought the bike 2 1/2 years ago it was already on the bike but the end can was the standard huge twin ported thing.
    SORRY KIWI....
    So the first step was to get in touch with RSVR.NET and see if they could get a GIANELLI TITANIUM road legal end can, with removable baffles for use when i get my arse on track for a few track days.
    I would immagine they still have them in stock as I am the only person who runs an RSV to my knowledge with them fitted. Never seen another RSV with them yet.
    I'm well happy with mine and it also keeps the Italian thing going on the bike together with the Italian D/bubble front screen.

    Hope this helps!
