Got a 2008 700 TA in december, stuck it in the garage - the Mrs has then filled the garage with crap so I can't get in from the garden and the youngest's car has broken down in front so I can't get in the front, hence the possibly silly question.
Want to get a paddock stand for it (cheaper...
Today I whiled away a pleasant hour cleaning, oiling and waxing the chain on my Dommie. Jobs like this are so much easier if the rear wheel is off the floor and able to spin freely.
I use an old trusty paddock stand for the job. First the white plastic lower chain guard has to come off to...
I have a Hagon shock absorber on my Dommie. I had an advisory on my recent MOT for “rear suspension bush has slight free play Rear Lower" so I'm going to take the opportunity to get it rebuilt by Hagon as it has done over 20,000 miles.
I've never removed a shock before, so I'm looking for help...
Not for wheelies - for repairs and the like . . . .
Had to take it into a shop to get a front tyre fitted and I've a speedo fault now so need to get the front wheel off.
I've got a rear paddock stand and a few jacks - no way of lifting the front and nothing I can sling a rope over like a tree...

I got a bog standard rear Paddock Stand last week but when I used it at the weekend the damn thing opened up and as I was trying to get it off the bloody bike fell over !
Luckily the Crash Bars saved any problems but it made me very suspicious of using the stand again.
So I'm looking at...
I had a bit of a bodgefest last week and turned a bit of cheap extruded 3mm?? ally into an enlarged foot:thumbright:
Cut it into 3 layers(with hindsight 4 would have been better)
Middle layer basically acts as a spacer, but needs to have an oval hole and slot cut into it...

What bike lift or paddock stands are people using to work on the @?, I have got one of the red manual lifts but cannot get it to go low enough to get it under the belly pan (grinder has been put to work) and it fell off the paddock stand I have (lucky on to the side stand and I was stood next to...
Leave the belly pan on, remove and try to avoid paint scrapage on frame, or just bang on under the block?
Me paddock stands aren't working too well on this @, and I'm not really fussed about a centre stand at the mo but I want to drop out the shock and the front wheel at the same time so I was...
Ok, in August I set myself (well, thats a lie, my Doctor did!) a 5 stone weight loss target - not too bad so far, just over 3 and a half stone so far! I also set myself a 10 mile running target which was ambitious to say to least... my first run lasted 3 minutes before having to walk... I was...
