Ok to use these sliders with paddock stand?

I'm very new to motorcycles. I want to buy a paddock stand to make chain maintenance easy.
Are these sliders on the rear okay to use for that? Or do I need to buy the type that lifts the swingarms?

Thanks!

You'd prefer the hook style over the "swingarm rest" style because the hook style never FALLS OFF THE STAND.

Had that happen once to me. I will not use the flat style one unless I have to.

Looks like a Shogun slider?

Thanks, just wasn't sure it was okay to lift on the sliders or not. Completely new to this. So wanted to verify before ordering the wrong one. Saw that it had notches so figured that's the purpose but ya never know!

Not sure on the brand. Didn't see any markings when I looked. The front ones are marked LSI I think... but they are way different from these rear ones.

Those look like the "spools" I have on my two Vs, and which I use w/ my paddock-stands to raise the rear wheel, so YES. Here're pics of both the '08 and the '15.

those are spools not sliders, so in the end the answer is yes you can use a rear stand with those
