Paddock stand options?

I have an old paddock stand, but it doesn't fit onto the rear properly, just lifts the thing but holds it in place, which defeats the purpose. Leaving me to wheel the 919 up and down the road when cleaning the chain.

Are there any cheap options for me to find one that fits here in Melbourne, AUstralia?

Is there someway you could modify it some, such that it will still give you a lift from an acceptable contact points, but allow your rear wheel to be free?

Can you post a picture of the stand?
I'm intrigued by what you have.

Gutterpoet. Maybe try a few wreckers for a center stand. I got a cheap center stand for my bike from a Melbourne wrecker. I've also seen a couple on Gumtree in the past year. Cheap, about $60.
I modified my center stand so I can fit and remove it quick. About 10 secs. I don't keep it on the bike permanently.
Also don't know if your aware but you can remove the chain intact on the Hornet 900 if you reverse the swing arm bolt. A side plate then can come off allowing you to remove the chain intact for a proper clean.
Rolling the bike along to clean and lube the chain sux!

I will try to remove the damn chain next time, if it is really as simple as you say mate!

Could you get a set of bobbins to attach to your swingarm? It looks like the paddock stand is designed to work that way.

ebay.com.au?

I went with some that had an M6 bolt size and they are still in place after a few years. You need to be careful tapping the thread into the swingarm as there is less sidewall than you might imagine. Some folks have had a piece of plate welded on to the swing arm first to beef things up, and some feel you shouldn't be drilling the swingarm at all...

Would they fit my 2005 919? They need to be drilled in to the bolt going through the axle!?

Yes, they would fit. No, a hole is drilled into the swingarm ahead of the axle bolt, and tapped with the correct thread so the M6 bolts screw in. Have a close look at the pic I posted above.
