Default Dropped the Ninja 1000 on paddock stand

As this is not the right stand for this bike I get away with putting rag around exhaust as otherwise underneath of exhaust would scratch. Today did not hook up right side correct and she ended up on rfloor on right but did managed to take the force out of it by holding on, slight mark in RH green plastic lower down, black plastic at very bottom but what hacked me off it cut the the wires on the rear ABS.







The photos look like it went left but I had to pick it up off floor on right and somehow get it on the stand, photos taken after the I had uttered O Crap

Ed you are a funny guy and we do wheelies like this because of living upside down. My fault for being cheap as using the stand Fastoman sent me over from Malaysia for the Ninja was a accident waiting to happen.

Sorry on your mishap bro...Trust you are OKAY after the wheelie..

The stand is Okay but you need a different hook for the Z1. The hook are meant for the Versys not the Z1.

Using with the hook you gave me with stand it slides hard underneathe of exhaust.The main reason i tipped her over was I never hooked the right hook correctly and when i lifted with left hook connected it tipped it hard to right and the stand got jammed in wheel, had to lift to back up off the ground and push it back over on to the stand like in the photos.

Kiwi I'm not sure but it looks like you used the wrong stand!

That stand looks like it is for a V 650?

Sorry about that! That sucks!

The stand is for the V 650 but I have been using it for the Ninja 1000 for one year now.

The stand can be used for the Z1000 , but you need to change the Hooks. The present hooks are meant for the V and not Z1000, but has you say, you can use the stand but need to be very careful.

The present hooks are Like a "G style hook" or fish hook and for the Z1000 you will need a "Y shape" hook.

Again sorry on the mishap.

I use this pitbull with spools. It's adjustable so I can use it for both my MT-01 and Versys, only takes a few seconds to adjust for each bike. And with the handle on one side it makes it easy to operate when you're alone. I always check to make sure both sides are positioned well before lifting.

Not sure how that handle would go with my Ninja as the exhaust may get in the way of a handle like that.

If my math is correct (taking into account the current price of gold in US dollars and the current exchange rate of US dollar to NZ dollars) I think that this equates to 0.019 ounces (or should I say 0.55 grams) of gold.

Then again, I do not think that gold is a better currency than the "fiat" dollar, but LONG LIVE THE GREENBACK!
