Paddock Stand

Its been mentioned that Pit Bull stand works well with the 961. There are a few choices. Is it the Standard model, Hybrid, or any others? Thanks

Did you have to order a specific size of spool too, or does it come with a "Standard" spool that fits the Norton?

I checked my 961 SF is 6 mm. I might order one od these, sure would make lubing the chain and other basic maintenance easier!

I went to Harbor freight this afternoon, $31.00 with a 20% off coupon which they always seem to have. I am a cheap SOB. It does not come with the spools so I will either make some tomorrow from a piece of delrin or order them from Revilla with the link in the above post. It is Chinese quality but probably more then adequate for the number of times I will use it!

Speak to your local Yamaha dealer as the spools for mine are from an R6 I think. Cost me about £8.

Good to know. Have two nearby. Not a big fan of their tools, but some items come in quite handy. Got a decent little compressor on sale and a coupon for 38 bucks. Gets my tires up to snuff in a minute. Oh.....and microfiber rags. Nice and soft and CHEAP :D

I just got the catalog today. What a coincidence. This bike stand is actually on sale for 299.00
