Question Rear paddock stand

Hi, just had my first service (done free of charge) so happy days but looking ahead to chain maintenance...
I have a set of paddock stands but they do not fit the rebel (they were used on my old 125cc) so i was wondering if anyone had found a good rear paddock stand (probably won't bother with front)....?
I contacted Abba stands but they replied that the foot pegs would be in the way which is a shame.
Also, no way/where to attach paddock stand bobbins....?!?
Any help appreciated........................

If you're just looking to raise the rear, pretty much any adjustable swingarm stand (with pads, not spools) will work, though you'll likely need to remove the stock exhaust to lift it.

I bought Black Widow stands for mine, front and rear.

I purchased this one from Amazon:

It's not a perfect fit, but you can safely lift the rear wheel without having to remove the exhaust.

Cheers but would like one that wouldn't require exhaust removal just to clean and lube the chain...

I'm using something similar to this one - https://www.louis.eu/artikel/liftstick-louis/10003338 (got mine via eBay from a UK seller that I can't find anymore). Am very happy with it all in all

I am using a scissors jack under the right side swing arm, and a block of wood under the kick stand, along with a zip tie on the front brake lever when I lube the chain. It works really good and the scissors jack was purchased on Amazon for about $14.00 years ago. However, I do have an after market slip on muffler that gives me easy access to the swing arm.

I was using the Harbor Freight thingy under the back wheel, but I really had to tug get the wheel to turn.

I have the TBR exhaust, which isn't in the way with the Black Widow stands.

That being said, it's literally a 2 minute job to take the exhaust off so it's out of the way.

i use the same Venom stand CGraz is using. i just put a piece of foam and a towel on the right side so it doesn't scratch the exhaust when it lifts that side.
