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..

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!

Put it on the stand, i have first hand experience of tyres going flat and falling over off the sidestand:bawling:

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. :yo:

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

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!

Hey Badger nice to see another DBF'r on here that 3 of us now.

I use the abba stand and a trolley jack to get both wheels off the ground. Abba stands are 10 times more stable than paddock stands.

Plus the abba stand can be used when your on your own to safely lift the bike

Hey oop mate, not been on forums much recently, to many other things to do.

Maybe catch up with some of you guys next year, it's a shame the Port Patrick trip fell through, i tried my best but it's typical of forums and people, when it comes to the part of paying deposits it all goes to pieces:blah:

Are you getting to ride the MV much on the rig:)

I got screwed out of my holidays from the work for that trip then it fell through:bawling:

I had the MV for 2 weeks before coming out to work and managed 1750 miles on brutie. I fooking love the MV, so glad I didn't buy the Street fighter S without trying the brutale.

It's getting to that time of year where the DBF goes mental cause we can't get out to play much, still the xmas toy run in a couple of weeks and I'm home for that.:yo:

Just gotta decide on either the full Corse titanium exhaust or all the other bits for it first.

I'm gonna sort a Scottish Agusta overnighter to Skye for spring and post it here so keep yer eyes peeled for that.:brutale:
