Chain adjuster spool & stand kit

As I believe' it's not possible to use a paddock stand with the stock exhaust on. (correct me if I'm wrong) I'm wondering if something like the example pics below is available for a circular swingarm that could fit the Rebel.

Anyone know of such a thing, or maybe it's just "too early days yet".

Twizzian ,

The guys that have Racers and Sports Bikes use Spools as shown in your pics to lift their bikes to work on them.

As you mention it is probably to early for any manufacturer to produce Spools for the Rebel.

I am going to look around and see if I can find a way to adapt existing Spools to the Rebel.

Let me know if you come up with something.
Very selfish of Honda, it's what we all require on a bike, not just for track but for general maintenance.

Yes use a stand that don't require spools. Lift it up by the swing arm.

The problem is the stock exhaust interferes with the stands arms, the exhaust is too parralel to the swingarm.

Let's hope Boki's stand works when he gets it.

Ideally you wouldn't have to remove parts just to jack up your bike, but I've removed my exhaust so many times (don't ask), it literally takes less than a minute.

I think I'm gonna wait till I change the stock exhaust then I'll get a universal stand that has the L shaped swingarm sides.
I'm still in limbo weather to get the Diablo slip-on, as I like that one but read reports of people saying it's too loud.
I'll be paying Tea money to the Fuzz every time I get stopped.

Anyone else got one fitted? Honest opinions?

I got some bad news

The exhaust still gets in the way when I try and prop it up. I was able to somehow manage to lift the bike because i seriously needed to clean and lube my chain, but dont think I will be using this anymore.

I have to go through the hassle of returning it now, although i dont think that will be a problem as the lady said i have 30 days to return it.

The search for a stand continues!
