getting the bike off the ground ......

Post by shipdamite » Wed Dec 07, 2016 8:15 pm

Evening,

I have normal mx type stands, a small platform hydraulic stand, paddock stands and an abba stand for a 950 sm: which would work to get the bike off the ground to get the wheels off, or what do you use (aside from a centre stand ....)?

The hydraulic stand would be good, but it would mean lifting the bike onto it ..... I am not that strong!

looking to get the wheels swapped for the recently acquired 17's

thank you

Just use an mx stand with foot lift, totally inappropriate for the job...

Then use straps to stop it falling over suspended from the garage ceiling.

Reminds me must buy a better stand...

Since you brought it up, I'm also looking for a stand that will allow me to easily put the bike up and take the wheels off. Any suggestion?

Surely the easiest answer is to fit a centre stand?

Parts are still available, you need a 379mm stand from an 04 ADV S.

Let me know if you would like the part number.

I got the part numbers but can't find one :| tried Eurotekktm and they told me it's not available anymore.
Any idea if there's one anywhere I could get ? Maybe some other dealer has one on the shelf ? Please let me know.

The majority of the parts you need are standard 950/990 Adventure parts (springs, bushes, bolts, rubber bump stops etc). These are easily available.

The big bit you need is part number 6000302200030 "Center Stand L=379MM 04"

Eurotek KTM supplied one in the summer to Rob, I got mine from Gear4Motorcycles in Peterborough with no problems, so they were still available as of a few months ago.

Thanks for that, I was looking for the stand as a whole kit (with everything included) and it was discontinued. I guess if the stand is available on its own ill have to chase all the bits parts for the rest.
You don't happen to have the parts numbers, do you ?

'Fraid not.

Just look at the fiche for an Adventure, it's pretty self-explanatory.

I can't promise all the parts are interchangeable, but my centre-stand kit was made up from the stand as described, bushes I had lying around the garage (from an ADV, year unknown), with bolts and springs off a 2011 ADV fiche. All fitted together and works OK.

PS If you haven't got one already, get a stainless spacer from Charlie 264 on the KTM Forum to use with his side stand relocator.

Evening all,

well, I have tried paddock stands, paddock stands with hooks and bobbins, 950 sm abba stand, mx stands, table top hydraulic lift, and for reasons that I wont bore you all with, nothing is appropriate!

A matey has a low (er) level hydraulic stand for bikes that is like a trolly jack with a platform - I might try and use that.

I even phoned my main parts supplier leisure trail (or 'treasure trail' as mrs shipdamite calls them) and asked their mechanic and he said that they use 'straps and an rsj in the workshop roof' .....

Looks like it might well be easier to have a centre stand ... although I have never had a centre stand on a bike and it makes me feel slightly uncomfortable :geek:
