    Motorbike stands

    Been looking at stands, I prefer the abba stand.. What does everyone use?

    You can get some serious bits of kit, but abba stands seem to be the best budget - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWCEOMlZuH8

    Motoglide add on looks awesome..

    Paddock stands are good, but I like the idea of just having one stand..

    I like the first one...does it fit on Aprilia's?
    The second one you will need a air compressor(quite noise)
    Third one...don't trust it,if you don't fit prop the bike might fall over(no matter what they say...I wouldn't buy it)

    I only have the standard back wheel paddock stand....

    My bad, don't think the first one does...

    First one does look good but its expensive. The abba stand does look good, you would need to be carefully fitting it on.. I have a front and rear but neither fit the RSV so they are on ebay.. I have wanted an abba stand since owning bikes but cant justify the 100 new sale price, always been on the look out for second hand ones..

    Off topic but while searching came across these awesome car lift/stands - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXCvq6DNJi0

    Standard paddock stands do the job.. But I have always wanted an Abba stand or something a bit more practical..That is such a cool stand..

    how are you getting on with the abba stand w00dzy? im hankering after one as im tired of having to do insane things just to lift the front end to work on it, only got a rear paddock stand and its not in very good nick.. really seems abba stands are the best things to get as they let you lift either end of the bike safely

    The abba stands are really good, I have one that I use with my hydraulic lift. But I use my bobbin stand most of the time as it's quicker and less hassle for every day use.
