I am for anything self-made that works (if you don't have two left hands or are plain dumb).

I like it when people get creative and come up with ideas which work and don't cost much, so congrats!

People who don't know anything else besides ordering from a "Screaming Deemon" catalog and pay top dollar or spend $15 on some red rubber plug to protect the slip-on from water when washing the bike have too much money and not enough ideas!

Man, I totally respect ingenuity, but this seems slightly sketch. Add a little more sketch if you are applying a lot of elbow grease to some tougher bolts. That being said, this is great info to know if you are in a bind on the side of the road and can make it happen.

Nothing sketchy at all. Your bike is supported by THREE places, the sidestand, the front wheel and the 2x3. It is used as a quick way to lube your chain.
If I'm wrenching on bolts I use my rear stand, which is less stable because you can tip a bike more easily with one than my fore mentioned stand. The rear stand holds the bike vertical, which is the advantage there, but I also strap the front in two points.

Try it for about 25 cents in wood. You'll like it. Or not in which case you can throw it out.

Good for you for thinking outside the box!

I would personally never do this for several reasons:
- Safety mainly.
- That piece of wood is scratching your swing arm.
- A rear stand cost $50 bucks. (You can afford the bike, so you can afford a rear stand)
- The time it takes to velcro your front brake lever, the rear stand can have the bike in the air.

That's just my opinion, but again, to each their own.

Oh and for what it's worth, this bike uses a paddock rear lift which is easier to lift up than a bike with spools.

HELLO....ITS FOR LUBING THE CHAIN ONLY !!!

Every time you put the bike up on the rear stand there is a chance you'll tip the bike over in the process depending on your strength and skill. Slight a chance as it is it happens.

I have front stands, rear stands, scissor jacks, hydraulic jacks, all kinds of stands. I have given away stands to friends. FOR ME this is quicker, easier and safer for LUBING THE CHAIN ONLY.

When I'm changing the wheels or chain or swapping the motor, I use stands and straps. But when I'm LUBING THE CHAIN, I bust out my trusty wood.

Again...its for LUBING THE CHAIN ONLY.

That's it, I'm selling the bike and getting out of motorcycling.

Who wants to buy? Low mileage with a well lubed chain, will include wood.
