How to oil the chain on 919??

I just got my 919 and I have no idea how to oil the chain without buying a stand. Is there any other way?
If there isn't where could I pick up a used one cheaply?

Thanks

Take your right hand, grab the grab handle. Take you left, grab the clutch side of the handle bar. Lean back a little. The rear tire will come off the ground. Take your foot and spin the rear tire a lite bit. Spray it where you can. Rinse and repeat. That's what I do.

you can try leaning the bike on the kickstand, rocking it to that side a bit so the wheel comes off the ground, and wedging a 2x4 under the footpeg or something... might want to have the front brake lever zip tied so it doesn't roll away. or a car jack.

i've always thought these were neat and wanted to try one:
Enduro Star / Trail Stand

you can also buy one of the Phobman stands from him. they are great.
a cheap rear stand with paddles will work fine if you don't plan on using it constantly.

just get creative or buy a rear stand.

O ya. There's a lift point on the right side of the bike if u got a jack. Lift it there and the bike leans over onto the kickstand. Back wheel comes off

Buy a stand, you are going to need it regardless.

+1!!!! A phobe stand would be better, but any stand will work well. You can even buy the cheapo harbor freight rear stand and it'll do just fine.

Swing arm stand (or Phobeman or center stand) and a grease ninja (Google it)
