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.

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:smile2:), 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!

Thanks Kenny, i have read some reviews that the wheel is really difficult to spin on these things. Is that true?

I think that's what was stopping me from buying it in the first place
Boki,

I don't have any trouble turning the wheel. I do wrap my hand around one of the spokes so that I can turn it just enough to get at the next section of chain that I want to lube.

I posted this elsewhere, hope it helps someone!

No place to mount spools! I'm going to try an available stand soon but feel some modifications may be necessary because of how low the exhaust pipe sits.

However I purchased this "Motorcycle wheel cleaning stand" from Harbor Freight, here in the USA. It has two rollers and actually works quite well for chain cleaning and lubrication tasks.

Please check out the thumbnail photo, and here's a link to the product web page. Mine only cost me about $22' US $, plus tax.
