I need a stand that lifts the bike completely from the ground, for winter storage but to work on it also.
I know Don is working on the center stand, but it will lift only the back and I cannot move the bike easy.
I was thinking taking a jack lift, but there are no mounting points to lift it up under the bike (clivecoo did something that is interesting http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...55&postcount=5
I found this Bursig paddock stand on the internet in Germany:
The problem is that works only on a limited number of bikes and it's expensive ( compared with a pair of front + rear stands).
This problem comes from the fact that you need to install something on the bike to be able to lift it and there is no mounting point for Versys.
I was working on something in the last weeks and I think ( 90%
) that I have a solution for our bike (Versys 2009). More than that, even though the stand works only on the left side ( as you see in the videos) my thing will work on both sides, so you can lift it up and work free wherever you want.
I'm in discussions with the producer to test this solution and I wanted see who's interested in having something like that.
I won't have any gain in this, as the stand is not mine, I don't have time and money to invest in this
Apparently they don't have a distributor in US, they sale only on internet from Germany.
