Paddock Stand

Any suggestions was to why my stand won't easily push into the hub.
It has been getting harder to engage into the hub, and now requires my to sit on the ground and kick it in with my foot. Then I can't get out without the help of a hammer and socket drive extension. The hub does not appear hot when I touch it, and I have clean the inside of the hub and the male end of the stand.

Thanks

Mine has done the same thing since new. I am going to take the nylon bush from the stand to work and take a skim off it with the lathe.

Same problem here; very tight fit. I spray the nylon male end with WD40 prior to pushing it in but it's still quite a struggle. Then it's a struggle (for me) to get the bike on the stand, particularly since I took the pillion pegs off. Then it's a struggle getting the bloody thing out of the rear wheel again...

It's a nice snug fit..any grit or contamination embedded into it only makes it worse. Take some emery cloth, wrap around it and sand away a bit of the material.

Also make sure the inside of the spindle isn't dirty or corroded.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

i threw mine in the trash, bought a ducati oem stand and change the pin to match mv hub...never had to mess with that cheapo stand that comes with the bike ever again. that stand is so cheap..no wheels to roll..so it gets all scatched up..not to mention that it's a pain to lift up. cheapo stand is so undeserving of such a nice bike.. always wondered why no one has ever complained about that cheapo stand.

2 of those POS came with my bike, only 1 works, the plastic piece on the other is 0.3mm larger than the hole in the axle......nice!

the 'no wheels' feature is especially handy when i try to use the stand while the bike is on my hoist.....it tries to pull the bike out of the front wheel clamp.....2 more for the scrap pile

The nylon shaft swells slightly in size due to contact with oils such as WD40 etc. Just sand paper the nylon shaft and your good to go. I use mine all the time, no drama and I'm only 63kg in weight.

PS : saw you up the Old road on sunday before it pissed down on us.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
