This is an easy method to lubricate the chain if you dont have a rear stand. I use a piece of timber (2 x 2 inches) and cut at an angle on one end so the length is 13 inches on one side and 13.5 inches on the other side. With the bike on the side stand simply lift the rear of the bike using one hand under the side arm near the rear (on the right hand side of the bike) and insert the piece of timber under the side arm. This lifts the rear wheel about half an inch off the ground which is plenty for lubricating the chain. I have heard it is possible to remove the rear wheel using this method but I have not tried. It is not meant as a replacement for a rear stand. It is very stable and costs nothing.
