Using paddock stand or not?

I will be putting the MV away for a while. I have a rear paddock stand, but no front one. Is it worth putting the bike on the rear stand or just leave it sitting on the tyres? I will be moving it about so it is not on one part of the tyre for a long time.TIA..

Cheers,
Jim

Not a problem IMO. Maybe inflate the tyres a bit more that normal if you are worried, but the only vehicles that suffer from prolonged standing are lorries in a hot climate, when the tyres can develop a flat spot.
A bike in the winter in U.K. will be alright.
On the other hand, I have a bike that rarely goes out and is off the floor back and front.
It keeps me happy!

You can chock the bike up underneath the headers if you want (obviously remove the bellypan first!!) to elevate the front once you've raised the back. It'll be engineered to carry the weight (bikes usually are).

Sorry to hijack thread but i have a paddock stand question.

I have the ducati stand from my 1098 (fg gubbellini i think) and it seems to fit with my 312. Will it be ok to use or do i need a special stand?

Cheers

Should be OK, the stand doesn't know or care what bike it's lifting. So long as it fits OK.

I Leave my RF9 on a paddock stand when I am away with a nose stand too, so both wheels are off the ground. I do not want to buy two more paddock stands so I will be getting an Abba Stand for the MV. This will allow me to get both wheels of the MV off the floor, it will also allow me to work on any of my bikes when used with the front paddock stand or even just a small pillar jack or axle stand under the belly.

I use an Abba on my MV and it is superb, does not lift the front though, i hate those spigot rear stands, no faith in them at all, Abba all the way for me, mind you those pit bulls look good too

Thumbs up Hhmm

Bursig stand's the best by far, not sure they have one yet for the new MV's though. I know they are the dearest too, IMO worth every cent you pay for it.

Just ordered one for my CB and R1 they do list an option for the MV, I checked when I ordered so I know I can buy the adaptor when I need it. Hope it's as good as you say!
