Uncertain if this topic has been covered before if so my respects to the creator.
Seen a couple different ones the Becker Technik was the cheapest, am not 100% but think another well known vendor sells a similar stand for more claiming it safer.
Am not a fan of the mounting system, two cups sit precariously force pressed on the original tapered bolt heads.
About a thou of metal is all that there is between your bike being supported or slipping off the f*cking stand.
Barely more than a few mm actually surround the bolt head but dont actually rest on it or support it as tapered away.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I've used the stand successfully about 3 or 4 times then when was setting up for swing arm removal this happend.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Caught me by total suprise, was not happy but could have been worse maybe. It's below left peg so less noticable.
Still had to use the stand and use it again when removed it like a twat I let the bike tip
Had a bit of a rant and Mr Beetle suggested a mount modification "like a finger in a bum hole"
Had a think about it and decided to retain some material to act as a washer, was unable to procure a washer same size as head on bolt.
Thought it better that the stand mount butt up against some metal other than the painted surface in the recess of the side plate.
Rotating it could potentially chew into the finish.
Tip: If you go for similar is to mount the bolt with the stand fitting fitted, this will then align the bolt better.
Found right side tended to tighten too low and restrict the mounts access some.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Local engineers machined the bolt heads. They rebuild engines especially diesel boat engines old ones.
Cost me £2.50 a bolt.
So why couldn't Becker have supplied the bolts, en masse production would have added 50p to the price.
I tend to very lightly grease the fitting now its sitting on something more substantial.
Also find lifting the bike is much easier for some reason.
Its defintely much easier lighter even. Certainly feels much more safe, well done Mr Beetle [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
