Swingarm spool for maintenance work

Has anyone installed a swingarm spool for the R yet? Where did you get it?
Was it a 6mm bolt?

I don't remember if there is a hole for the spool to be attached. [email protected] sells offset spool, which you attach in a different way. i have such system on Versys, not for maintenance work as it has main stand, but as swingarm protection.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

Where did you find a 6mm threaded hole?

There are NO threaded holes, to lift the rear you either need to use a stand model that supports the swingarm (L shaped brackets) or you can add third party brackets each side of the axle that would give you possibility to add spools.

Topic was explored here: https://www.g310rforum.com/forum/185...l-sliders.html

Might be other solutions since this was posted, I did not make any new research. I'm still using a rear stand with universal L-shaped brackets to lift mine.

I used a combination of jacks and a few tie-downs. Jacks to lift up the bike, and tie-downs to secure it using the 2x4 beams in my garage. LOL
