Rear hub maintenance

Hi getting prepared to check my f3 800 rear hub. One Initial query is how do I safely support my bike when I can no longer use the rear hub bike stand? I have a front stand under caliper type. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks

A few ways you can do this-
Buy a centre lift stand.
Swap over footrests and support the bike on car jack stands.
Remove seats and lift rear of bike with straps around the frame to a support beam in your garage.

Thumbs up ?

Blinxnot;
Do it Mitch's way......you can use a jack on the bottom of the shock IF THE FRONT END CAN'T FALL ....RESTRAINED FROM ABOVE
Caliper lifts aren't secure unless you use a rear stand.....and they're real shaky with the axle out

Thanks for the advice I have ordered a Centre lift stand as it seems the best option for me. If the hub is dodgy will put an order in with Mitch.

I use foot peg stands and front fork under caliper stands.

If you have the stock footpegs, you need to flip your footpegs upside down so that they dont fold when you release the rear stand on to the footpeg stands. After you are done, you remove your footpegs and rotate back to normal and good to go.

My footpeg stands look like this

Central stands for footpeg rests - RACING paddock stands - Lv8 ELEVATE - Brescello

You need a rear axle stand to to lower the bike on to the footpeg stands.

I use these in my garage. Two sets of these allow a complete bike to be torn down to the frame. This is a buy it once and use them as long as you own motorcycles, then sell them to someone else who needs to do maintenance from time to time when you are done with them. They are strong & stable and not likely to slip or get knocked over.

A frame ladder with two ton racket straps to the frame. Put bike in middle of ladder and ratchet her up.

Lift stand arrived planning to attend rear hub maintenance next week. Moto go on tomorrow. Thanks for all the advice with this. Maybe a few more questions when I start removing parts!

If you want to, make some pictures during the maintenance.
Always nice to see and learn from
