To Mr Mike:
I too want to lube the chain myself and moving the bike back a few inches at a time to do this is a pita to say the least, I even put marks on the chain (with a sharpie marker) to make sure I get it all!
I am a service newbie so excuse my ignorance. How does this phobman stand work? I ass-u-me it sets under the bike at about a 45 degree angle, then the pin goes through to secure it to the center-stand holes. How does one "lift" the bike without the stand sliding on the floor? (mind you I have never used a center stand and the 919 is my first bike)
I also have been considering a "pit bull" because a local bike shop claims to discount them with "racer" pricing and those stands seem to have a good rep. The standard net price seems to be around $130 ish.
