I got mine today and it is a slick piece of kit, highly recommended to all. Easily able to get either tire up in the air for service, stores small and compact.

I suspect my spotty maintenance of the chain on my side stand only bikes is a thing of the past.

Steve is a good guy to deal with as well.

Storage Option

Here is a way to store the Trail Stand with the Cradle and Foot removed but still attached together. Insert the pin thru the hole on the cradle then place the foot between them and wrap with the brake strap.

Hey Swamp Rat,
Just to throw out some thoughts....
It should be quite stable for the rear wheel work, be sure to use the strap to lock the front wheel brake good and solid.

The front is inherently less stable as there is not much weight on the back wheel, it depends on what bike your using it on as to how stable the front is when lifted. Make sure to only lift the wheel high enough to do what you need to, lifting it way up in the air always decreases stablity, front or rear.

One way to increase the front stablity is to put something heavy against the right side of the back tire when the front is in the air, this keeps the bike from wanting to rotate counterclockwise around the kickstand.

I will try to post a pic up later to show this for reference.
Some guys I know have a centerstand and use the Trail Stand to hold the front wheel in the air when the bike is on the centerstand.

Obviously a prop stand will never be as stable as a centerstand but I am curious to hear your comments after you try it out!

Here is a way that increase stability when the front wheel is in the air. Place a rock or a friends boot next to the rear wheel, I used a small sandbag I had in the garage for illustration. It wasn't unstable to begin with but this helps keep the rear wheel from wanting to rotate around the kickstand if you push too hard on the front. Remember the Trail Stand has 1/2" adjustability so that you can lift the wheel just high enough off the ground to do the necessary repairs and keep it as stable as possible.
(Here's the disclaimer) As with any lifting device the user needs to use caution to not place themselve's in a situation that could lead to injury while lifting a motorcycle.

Looks like a Cool product.

Hi Steve,

Looks like a great product!

I have a KTM 450 EXCR. It's rather tall. Any issues before I order?

Thanks in advance,

Jed.

Hey Jed,
The Trail Stand's tallest working height is 20 inches from the floor to the cradle, using lower of the two holes in the tube with the last hole in the rod.

I have used it on a KTM 450 to lift the rear wheel. If your frame is not covered by a skidplate in the area under your foot peg it will work there for the rear wheel. If that is covered you can use it on your swingarm, near the shock pivot, to lift the rear wheel.

It should lift the front if you have a hole in a skidplate on the lower right side. I don't think the stock KTM skidplate that I saw had a hole there, in fact aren't the stocks skidplates a high strength plastic?

Basically the best thing to do is have someone tilt your bike on the kickstand just enough to get either wheel of the ground and measure where you want to use it, if it 20" or under it should work fine.

Here's a link to a Great ride report from August on his trip to Baja and Copper Canyon.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=552169

He took a Trail Stand along and here's a pic of it in use on a fully laden DR650 in some less than helpful terrain...check out the report, lots of great pictures and a great story!
