After changing my oil today i quickly came to realise how much easier it would be with a bike stand.

I have looked at the type that goes under the bash plate, but then the sump is covered ???
the other type i seen is the ones that goes under the swing arms but that one doesnt seem as if it will be much good at a trial on the grass???

Just wondering which you use and good or bad points you find with each type before i buy mine.

cheers

Most bash plate type stands have a section cut out to allow access to drain plug. I have one of each and use the swingarm stand when changing oil cuz it does give you more room. Hope that helps

The one that goes under my bash plate of my rev3 will allow you to slide the bike forward so the sump bolt is alvaliable, its just a standard foot lift stand.
you dont want to buy the one that goes under the swing arm as that is desighned for track bikes/ road bikes.

I like the folding stand that I recently purchased from Jitsie. It allows you to slide the bike forward or back to access the drain plug , and folds flat when not in use, to take up less room in the hauler.
