paddock Stand
on: May 20, 2015, 08:41:56 PM
Never used a paddock stand before but have decided to invest in one for the CR.

Do any other members use them and which ones do you recommend. I'm assuming that the Standard VFR800 "PIN" will fit the C.R. rear axle?  :183:

yes, looks much like the one i've ordered. Do you just remove the plastic cover and push it in, and is it specifically for the crossrunner or all VFR800s?

I have one that I bought for a CB1000r which has a single sided swinging arm, all the single side Honda swingarms are the same size hole, The wife's bike has a centre stand but I prefer the paddock stand.

Yes for the times i will use it , it is a) much cheaper and b) maintains the ground clearance.

After taking it up a stone strewn cinder track in the Lake District, I couldn't have wished to be on a better bike.

Yes.

As Gain has said, you can use it with all single side Honda.

Sorry for the delay

Well it arrived. The bearing shell was bent (over came that problem with brute strength and a large dollop of ignorance) bu tthat was just the start of the fun.
The bike looked P****d on the stand leaning over to the offside and the rear wheel rubbed on the bottom brace.
On examining the stand closer I found that the spindle mount was fixed off square.

"It's probably 'coz it's not specifically designed for that model of VFR 800"    Load of Tosh the builder had had 1 too many me thinks!  :087: :230:

It's gone back to fleabay and awaits a refund for round 2 of paddock stand purchase (from a different supplier).

The one I got came from Germany and is OK
They all tend to lean a bit, even my old Triumph did and that stand was very substantial.

Thanks Gain
I have spotted a German supplier at a good price. I'll wait for my refund first.
