    (Initially, I thought we used a longer screw to put the support but in fact I saw that the screw was part of the frame).






    * fix the shock absorber and tighten.
    * fix the coil with the other BTR screw








    The spools I have directly replace the shock retention nuts and do not require an adapter to be installed to the Monkey.

    @3 crows:thank you. can you give me a reference and an internet link for me to find these spools.
    we do not find any accessories in France for the Monkey and are obliged to search the internet for tips.
    there is no club or forum for the monkey, here.


    thankfully, American friends, are always ahead

    The back wheel is WAY up... almost 6 inches off the ground. Obviously made for larger wheeled bikes. (lol)
    How much was that version of the stand?

    Only 33 bucks.
    It comes all welded into one piece, with no assembly. It has nice cushy rubber coated arm holders on pivots that freely rotate as you lift the rear off the ground. I think it's a steal for what it does. Oiled and adjusted my chain today while on the stand and it was a breeze.

    The pit stand spools that I installed are by G Craft. Not saying they are any better or worse than the ones you used. Only that they do not require an adapter. They work fine, look good and I see no issue with them. They work with both my Pit Bull stand and the Harbor Freight stand being discussed.

    Next, I want front and rear axle sliders.

    Just a warning. The cheapo HF stands are adequate for a 230 pound bike and especially with the captive design of a spool lift vs a trailing arm lift pad. But for a 400 pound sport bike or heavier cruiser, no way. I own a Pit Bull set of track stands, front and rear, made in the USA and worth the high price tag, you get what you pay for and if you do not want your machine laying on the concrete, listen to this guy:



    The HF stand I bought cannot bend (much) while in use on a 200ish pound motorcycle and the spools have the lifting ears captured. But my warning is more for the type that lift under the trailing arm. They will flex/bend and then your motorcycle will fall. I have seen it over and over. The right tool for the job and know the limitations. If you can bend it by hand it will bend under the motorcycle, especially if you sit on it. I also can tear the HF stand apart by hand and I am not all Hulked up like the fellow in the video and no, I cannot bend my Pit Bull stand, it will flex a little and then spring back, the difference between high strength alloy steel (I imagine 4130) and Chinese crapola.

    I looked at the aluminum one and didn't buy it. Too many pieces. The steel one is better as it's all welded together into just one part. It's perfect for a light little Grom.
