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.

I purchased the KTM rear stand, this is a universal stand suitable for almost all standard two arm swinging arm motorcycles

Does the KTM stand fit to bolt-on spools or go under the swingarm? Prefer the spool design myself, but open still...

Just using my standard front and rear stands. Same I used for my RC8 and ZX6-R. Just add rear spools and you should be golden.

I’ve been using my Two Brothers Racing stands for almost 20 years, too. I don’t think they even sell them anymore.

Pieces of coated, bent steel pipe. Give them some love and they will last forever.

Some history there, EvansB2.
