Rear paddock stand

How tight should this be ? I have to keep knocking it in and out with a rubber mallet. Pain in the ...

sometimes mine is pretty tight and i'm tugging and tugging. I'll take a moment and get the alignment just right (not pulling up or letting the weight of the stand push down) and it slides out like nothing at all.

Oddly enough I got tired of just this today and took my stand back in to Forza for them to get the nylon tube milled down a tad.

Hitting it in and out cannot be good for the hub/bearings IMHO

You ment turn it down a bit , turn down a diameter of the nylon tube. Any machineshop can taka a few thousands off of the Outside diameter for you . It should be a slipp fit.

Like Joe said do yourself a favour and buy an aftermarket stand,the original stand is dangerous as the bike can wind itself off the stand when turning the back wheel,aftermarket stands the spindle is on bearings and turns with the wheel,Mitch.

I agree. That stock stand is awful. If you can find a Duc 1098 stand it fits the 05 axle at least.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Aha. So even the new stand that comes with the 2010 model (if you pay for it) is an improvement....

I just shaved a little off mine with sand paper - then put some vaseline on it & works fine, not best thing in world granted but thats' life! Better things to spend money on than a stand when you have one already.
