Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

ah, I'd always planned to not have one but kept it for convenience but my other bike has doesnt have one and I manage just fine so if its ok on the Abba I might just drop it off. I've got a front and rear paddock too so a few options to get it up.

I ordered from Abba on Friday but they only emailed me yesterday afternoon and said it would be out of stock for a week or more.  So I got a refund and ordered one from m&p.  Have you tried it out yet?

just did with some success...... the LHS is fine, RHS isn't as deep as it needs to be. the adaptor is 15mm deep and really needs to be 20mm.

it lifts but not what id say is ideal and don't think id do it again till getting something more suitable.

in fact both adaptors aren't far off the stock holders.

Just spoke to Abba again and they are sending me an alternative adaptor which is almost identical but deeper so will let you know how it goes when it arrives.

Cheers Jerry.  Really need to get something sorted, my CB fell just off it's side stand into my CRM while I was doing some work on it. It only broke the CB's side panel but I'm pissed off at such a silly tumble.

so, haven't had a chance to do a lift on it yet but I've popped the cover and tried it in the recess and fits perfectly so problem solved Smile



LH adaptor on the left, on the right hand side are the supplied 'CB500X/Y Kit' and new adaptor - as you can see the replacement one is considerably deeper.

for those wondering what all this will achieve here are some pics from the first lift on the old (not great) adaptor that used.





Hard to see but it lifts it quite high up, considerably higher than the centre stand.

Probably not worth £120 (£100 for the stand and £20 for the adaptors) to anyone happy keeping the centre stand on the bike but I already had it so now nice I can use it on both of my bikes Smile

It looks like a tasty bit of kit & having the ability to use it on both your bikes is a must since you already had it.

£20 is gonna pay for itself with the better milage you get from removing the weight of the centre stand Wink

When you pivot / lift the bike onto it, does the front wheel roll forward much?

Definately not. If I rolled the bike forwards on top of my proper(!) bike lift, I'd be in a whole pond of deep poo!

Just curious,

true it's a proper lift which is great if you have the space but still requires the intervention of a stand of some description to centrally stabilise and unweight a wheel and said stand will either roll it back or forth to do so...

It's the later CB500X/Y kit with the RH replaced for a deeper version - think the invoice I got said '22mm deep adaptor'
