Just stumbled upon this....ORDERED! Very cool tool.
Thanks for the order Shockdoc! It's on the way today!
....just what I've been looking for. Congrats on your success!
What's the total length of the stand? Wondering if I can store it in my tool tube...
Thanks Rapid Dog,
If you remove the foot and the cradle the tube is only 10-1/8" inches long, you can wrap them to the tube with the front brake strap if you want to keep everything togther that way. It will fit in a lot of fender tube bags like this.
With the foot and cradle attached it is about 12 inches long and extends to 20!
If you talking about the agri supply plastic tool tube I believe it will go in there assembled no problem, I will check again tonight. I have the agri supply plastic tube but have never found a good place to mount it on my bike.
..that's it exactly. I have a 2-1 pipe on my 950 ADV and the agri-tube mounted where the left can would go. It holds the tire irons, etc.
That's where I'd put it.
It will easily go in the agri supply tube. I pretty sure completely assembled but at worst you can take the cradle off and wrap the front brake strap around it to hold it to the main tube of the Trail Stand.
I will double check for you this evening on the fit with it completely assembled and post a pic for you but you willl have no problems storing it in the agri supply tool tube!
Received mine yesterday. Much nicer and half the price as the stand I bought from Aerostich 2 years ago.
Here's the pic of the Agri Supply Tool Tube and the Trail Stand
It fit's easily with the cradle removed and wrapped with the front brake lock strap. Like this it is only 10.5 inches long.
Happy with mine for the DRZ.Had to change rear wheel bearings and thought it might prove difficult to get situated in the right place to raise the back wheel off the ground. No Problems, money well spent, better that what I usually do by laying the bike on the ground.
It's on the way Rapid Dog! Thanks
Mine's on the way too! May I never need it! But even for chain lubing, it'll be great to have around.
Front wheel of my friends Dr650 off the ground. It's hard to see, but the trail stand fits in between the skid plate and the muffler and catches the edge of the bikes frame/down tube. Totally stock mounting position to lift the front wheel off the ground.
Rear wheel of the bike off the ground. Again, the trail stand found a home on the bikes frame. Not secured to anything aftermarket.
Also, I might note that though there were two of us there at the time, I put the bike on the trail stand by myself each time. I simply knelt by the side of the bike, pushed with one arm, stuck the trail stand in place. Good to know it'll work when we need it most on our upcoming trip!
Great pics Alex!
Keep us posted on your trip, looking forward to a ride report post a link here when you start one.
Remember the Trail Stand has 1/2" height adjustment so you might try dropping the front just a shade. The lower you lift the bike the more stable it is. And I'm sure your using the strap lock on the front brake when you lift the rear. It really makes the bike solid lifting the rear doesn't it.
Thanks for the pics, look forward to a ride report!
Just ordered, fantastic idea.
Got one a few months back. Great piece o' kit!
...ditto dat, this thing is compact!
Thanks to all for the comments!
I worked hard to keep it small, simple and versatile to use and to pack.
With the pencil for scale and the cradel and foot removed it give you and idea.
Rapid Dog, a picture of how it packs up in your tooltube would be cool if you get a chance.
...I'll see what all I got in that tube and do some arrangin' this weekend.
It can make it faster if you mark the stand like this one for your bike. The suspension sag and the surface you are working on can affect the height setting you use but having it marked as a starting point makes things faster sometimes.
And you can use the brake strap on the rear brake on alot of bikes like this too, it is not as effective as using it on the front brake but it does help if you put the strap on and step on the brake pedal an then tighten the strap
