Paddock stand for motorcycles
With this type of stand you can lift the wheels of the motorcycle off the ground, making for easier maintenance, cleaning and tinkering.
In racing, paddock stands are used for a number of reasons, one of them to make fitting the tyre warmers a lot easier. As a bonus, the paddock stands also gives your bike a much sportier look.
Keeping the weight of the bike off the tyres is also better for when the bike is in long-term storage.
There are a number of ways to hook up the paddock stand with the front or rear wheel of the motorcycle, but the most common are the cup-style and the bobbin-style attachments.
