MotoGP 1 Piece Front Paddock Stand
Customer Product Reviews
Very pleased with this after first ordering a "premium" oxford one that was badly made and didn't work. Even with the current problems, Sportsbikeshop were excellent at dealing with the bad Oxford stand and getting this out to me instead. really good service. As others have said, the fitment is quite narrow and I had to take both springs out. But the lifting pegs are good sturdy quality and is a much safer hold that the other one. Some sideways movement on the legs if lateral pressure is applied to the bike but very happy with it overall.
Good quality stand
Usual excellent customer service - was sent with just the frame and no supports but a quick email and missing bits in the post next day no quibbles. Good study stand (I have the rear which is excellent). For my Striple 675 it just fits moving springs to outside, but as one fork is slightly longer than the other it does look slightly precarious on one side. I imagine other stands might struggle more though and seems safe enough if carefully positioned.
Decided that I needed a front paddock stand after years of using a Bike it Wheel roller / spinner (also bought from SBS). Chose this one as I liked the one piece idea for build quality and durability. Very happy with the stand and SBS have the best price by far. So impressed that I ended up buying the matching rear stand as well even though I already have a rear paddock stand! It JUST fits my bike(MT10 SP with R & G Fork protectors).
Very strong and sturdy, it's one piece frame means it doesn't flex like other stands. One major downside is, that it's very narrow. I had to move the fork leg holders as far out as they would physically go. They only just about fitted my bike (KTM RC8). Would assume most 1k cc bikes would have the same issue.
Solid little stand
I bought this so that I could take my wheels off to get new tyres fitted. Never used a paddock stand before but bought this based on the reviews and not disappointed. Cheap stand but it's solid and does what it's supposed to. I can lift my VFR1200F with this on my own without worrying about it falling over. It should repay me quickly from what I'll save on the tyre fitting side.
Takes some getting used to
Build and quality is good as I have the rear stand which works very well. Because of the design of the front shocks on my Z1000 you have to make sure you get the rubbers in the right place, because as you lift I tend to find the steering will tend to twist left or right, other then that very good stand.
Exactly what I wanted
Bought both rear and front Moto GP1 paddocks stands. Very easy to assemble. Installation was straightforward and I got the bike up on the stands by myself without any drama, which was exactly what I wanted. Bike is stable and did not move even when I bumped into it by mistake.
Great paddock stand
I purchased the rear paddock stand with this as well. It took some fiddling around to set up this stand, I had to take all the washers off and take the springs off both sides and cut them down in order to make it fit. Other than that a good stand, visually appealing too!
Good solid stand
I bought the front and rear paddock stands together and so far I have found them to be well built and once the bike is on them it is solid as a rock. I like the fact there are no joints that can be loose and cause flexing I have no concerns about the bike falling off them. Easy to use with good leverage, it is a one man job.
