So I was surfing over on the Revzilla and Sport Bike Track Gear sites when it hit me . . .

Nobody is making anything for the new SS yet because accessory manufacturers don't have access to the bike yet either. :eek:

No tank pads, no fender eliminators, no gps mounts, etc etc etc. Do you suppose we could go the whole summer before some of this stuff starts hitting the market? Especially with tank pads and the pre-cut protective films, you could bugger up your paint before you have a way to protect it.

Too bad, I want the bike now and will catch up with the doo-dads later.

A question for someone who knows, how does a rear wheel stand work on a bike with a single sided swing arm???

Anyone recommend as reasonably priced rear stand that'll work for the SS?

Johan -

Thanks for the video, that was cool. Makes me wonder how much weight it can hold. It looked like the bike was a bit wobbly after it was lifted.

IMO Pit Bull makes the best stand. They are extremely well designed and manufactured to high standards and easy to use.

Accessories will be coming on the market for this bike very quickly. In the meantime, a little bit of research can determine which of the already available farkles for other models will also fit the SS939. :nerd:

If I were concerned with protecting the tank paint and could not find a commercially available protector I would go to an auto paint protection film shop and have a custom one made and installed. I did one a year ago and it was only $40.00.

Try this stand. Looks easier to lift. Has fitting for SS.

Abba stands are great, I've used them before and I currently have my new one sitting in the box ready for the supersport.
Whilst I have a reasonably large garage I need to park my bike across the front of my precious car. Using a conventional (all be it single sided) paddock stand on my own without dropping the bike leaves me cold.

An Abba is so easy to use and the bike is very stable, more than strong enough to allow you to safely sit on the bke whilst it's on the stand, there's always the option of adding their adapter which lifts both wheels off the floor.

I do not have any connection with Abba, other stands are available.......................................

Thanks...the Abba looks interesting.

If possible a brief demo vid with the SS would be appreciated.

The dynamoto one looks great for moving it around with ease, but I really like the way the Abba one looks for if it was just going to stay in one place in the garage.... I need both now..

I've never seen the dynamoto set up before. It looks as though it would really be effective. Certainly better than most of those frame lift stands that have been around for a while. I've seen similar omni-directional wheel/tire designs on fork lifts and they work as advertised.

Myself, I've never had the need for a bike moving apparatus and I've had up to four bikes at a time in the garage along with a small machine shop (lathe, mill, grinder, band saw, and welders) along with a tire changer and balancer.. Quite crowded, but manageable. My choice of stands is directed toward maintenance, not maneuverability. That is why I recommend the Pit Bull stand. That doesn't mean I wasn't foolish and wasted my money of other brands. One (unnamed) was so confidence uninspiring I would not leave a bike on it overnight without supplemental support. Eventually wised up and got rid of it. I liked my friends too much to give it to them. Donated it to our weekly scrapper.

Ive seen several pics and references to the Abba but never seen one here. Seems to be more of a European reference, or maybe I don't get out enough. :wink2:
Getting back to those frame lift point designs, at least one of them has gone out of business. He started out with a lot of hype and ended up offering group buys on the forums. The reason I know he is out of business is because I had ordered some of his special tools which he never delivered. I did a card charge back and he didn't even respond with a justification or corrective action.

I am interested in Frame Sliders as well. If anyone finds them please post them in here.

Wow, that Dyna Moto stand is awesome. Just the ticket for compact winter storage in the garage, but I don't think I am going to pull the trigger on buying one with that price. I'll check out the others mentioned.

I just picked up a Garmin GPS on sale (-$200) for my BMW, and would think about using it on the Duc if I can find a suitable mount that doesn't detract from the beauty of the bike. I don't really expect to be taking any 2000+ mile trips on the Duc, but you just never know. . . After using my cell phone for navigation the past two years, I am looking forward to returning to a Garmin.

Also, as Hugg727 mentioned, I will be looking for some frame sliders as well.

I've had frame sliders on my last three bikes, but I don't know if I will do them for this one. I expect you would need to cut holes in the fairings and I am not up for doing that.
