Swingarm Pivot Stands & Tee Stands
Swingarm Pivot Stands
|SWINGARM PIVOT STAND
This stand supports the bike at the swingarm pivot point - it is not
as quick and easy to use as a rear swingarm stand, but there are some jobs
for which you canít use any other stand. Because it takes all the weight
off the rear suspension, it allows you to work on the rear shock easily.
The lifting pins engage in the holes in the end of the swingarm pivot pin,
or in the hexagonal recess in the head of the fastening which holds the
pin in place. Some models donít have any suitable lifting point on the
swingarm pivot pin, but have other points which lend themselves to pickup
points for this stand. The Ducati 1098 can use this stand if supplied with
a different set of lifting attachments - it picks up on a pair of frame
recesses for engine mount bolts.
This stand has adjustability for height, width and offset for footrest
clearance, and comes with different pins, so it suits almost any bike.
On most bikes the rear end will naturally lift as the centre of gravity
is slightly in front of the lifting point. However, because it is lifting
close to the bikeís centre of gravity, it is easy to rock the bike so that
the front wheel lifts off the ground.

are fitted to the bike, then the rear stand is removed and the bike lowered
onto the footpeg stands. They are height adjustable.
