motorbike 'jack' for lubing chain

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by kyan, Jun 25, 2008.

  1. Is anyone familiar with a product like this? Are they practical to use? I have a sv650 and lubing the chain is a pain.

  2. I wouldn't trust it enough to be sticking my hand under the tyre :shock:.

    What's wrong with just using a paddock stand?
  3. or a cinder block, or a milk crate etc
  4. Set about a major chain clean in Tassy with my patent pending rock and spanner paddock stand... tie off the front brake though.


    or this more recent variation:

  5. Yep. Have one in the garage.

    I had the bike sitting on it for a few hours whilst I took the wheel down to have a tyre fitted.

    It is secure, cheap and very efficient.

    Of course I no longer need it as the K is a shaft drive ;)
  6. I think they are designed to be portable so you can do your chain when you are travelling.

    get a paddock stand for home
  7. per-zackerly
  8. That second pic is HUMUNGOUS!
  9. Didn't want anyone to miss the bricks! :LOL:
  10. Gee, I remember many years ago a thing called a centrestand. Call me old fashioned, but I just don't get it.....why are they optional or not even available these days???? Does anyone really think that in the real (on-road) world that the weight of a stand down low under the bike is going to make any discernible difference to performance or handling? You'd see more benefit from having a good crap before you hit the road!!!!!!!!!!!
