Rear Wheel Stand

What are you guys using for a stand to get the rear wheel in the air to service the chain, etc.? Had a Pit Bull for my Gixxer 1000 but was thinking there might be something more specific for the Duke. Please include pics if you have any. Thanks.

Using my trusty "no name" paddock stand I bought for $50! It can be used either with bobbins or with rubber covered brackets that sit under either side of the swingarm. Although I thought bobbins would be more stable, until I get some I'm using the brackets, and it sits solid as a rock.

Pit Bull. The best, by far.

One of the square framed Ebay pit-bull copies... I have a couple. Just work well.

An ABBA stand, and an ABBA Skylift. Top stuff.

Many thanks for that. I already have an ABBA stand for my GSX-S 1000. It's the best thing ever so fantastic that adapters are available.👍
