I have a KLE 500 dual purpose bike, which just has the side stand, and I wanted something to hold the bike up with the real wheel off the ground for general maintenance work (chain cleans and lube mainly) Was thinking about a 'stand-alone' stand (think they're called paddock stand, which you can slide under the rear wheel and lift) which I could keep in the garage and use when needed. Not cheap though - bike biz has them starting from around $130. However, I could also install a centre stand. On the 'pro' side, the permanent stand would be there when and where I need it. On the 'con' side it would add to the weight of a bike that already has a low power to weight ratio (it is learner legal after all ) Anyone have words of wisdom on the benefits of installing a centre stand, how easy is it to install, how much do they (approx) weigh, how much they cost and (most importantly) will it work for chain lubing and other minor maintenance work. Or would it be better just to get the stand-alone option. Thanks in advance.
