The pocket size rear wheel stand for motorcycle sport
by SJL Products
The Problem -
Motorcycle manufacturer's have
reduced the weight and improved ground clearance by removing the center stand
from today's sport bikes. These changes have improved the ride for
sport bike riders but has made chain maintenance a more difficult chore. Not
having a stand to support the rear wheel can turn chain lubrication into a long
walk across the parking lot, pushing and oiling as you go. Not much of a problem
if you are home in the garage with your full size swingarm stand but what do you
do when you're out on the road away from home?
The Solution -
is a portable motorcycle rear wheel support that's small enough
to carry on your bike. It allows you to raise the rear wheel off the pavement so
it can be rotated while you lube your chain, check tire condition or repair a
leaking tire (plug type repair). It takes up the same amount of space as a pair
of sunglasses and weighs only 6-1/2 ounces. In the words of one reviewer......"very
HOW IT WORKS
||After parking your bike on a hard
level surface remove Quick Stand from it's
Cordura storage case and snap it together. Attach the velcro brake lock
strap to the front brake lever to lock the front wheel.
||Using the spring-loaded feature ,
attach it to the swingarm spool on the right hand side of the bike (your
bike must be fitted with spools in order to use Quick
||Standing on the same side of the
bike, rock the bike from side to side with a slight lifting motion. Grabbing
the foot pegs is a convenient way to do this. As you rock the bike, use your
foot to nudge the lower end of Quick Stand
towards the rear tire.
||You'll find that your rear tire has
been lifted clear of the pavement and is now supported in this position. The
entire process takes less than 30 seconds to complete. You now have two free
hands to rotate the rear wheel and apply chain lube, check tire condition,
plug a flat tire, add air or even clean the wheel. When you're done using
Quick Stand, unsnap the tube sections and put in back into it's Cordura
case. It's small enough to be easily stored under under your motorcycle's
seat or in the tail section.
