You know, I was going to suggest something like that but those are usually used for dirtbikes (my KX500 came with one), but maybe that one has the larger and for sportbikes. Me, I just bolted a Black Widow wheel chock to a piece of plywood (just fits within the wheelwells of my former truck) with a bunch of bracing and I can just roll the bike into that and it won't fall over. I can use it in the garage, or, what I made it for, to transport the bike in the bed or in a trailer.

My first race in Sept, cannot have a kickstand otherwise I would have kept it. Also track body work does not work well with a kickstand.

I could not find any pics or instruction on how that stand works. Does the fork looking part go on swingarm side and triangle base on floor? I have a black powder coated swingarm, is it gonna get scratched?

Ah, didn't know a kickstand was banned in your series.

The pin goes into the hollow axle, and the flat part on the opposite end is on the floor.

It's really a dirt bike stand, but the shaft that sticks out at the top of the triangle would insert into the hole in your rear axle/spindle (if you have one). Here's an example: https://www.motosport.com/product/?a...badger&variant[FYL007X]=FYL007X-X001-Y001

How was the trip? How did the tool work out?

Sadly, I didn't get to take the bike. Partway up I was monitoring tire life, and I just had a bad feeling I wasn't gonna make it to Denver, so I turned back and ended up taking the car. So, the bike has sat now for a couple weeks. The friggin' stealership here in Albuquerque wants $230 for an oil change! Needless to say I'm not going to be wasting any money with them. Sadly, the dealer in Santa Fe is owned by the same owner, so, if their prices are as absurd, I'll rent a trailer and take it the 1,000mi roundtrip to the Denver dealership where I bought it...

When I get to actually use it on the road, I'll definitely post up!
