Highly recommend Abba stand. There are plenty on ebay, and there is a fitting kit for the SX,  see link below.

Had a look on Youtube and seems to reduce the risk of dropping the bike off a rear paddock  stand which had been worrying me!! Will look at getting one of these. Thanks for all of the advice :001: :001: :001:

i found the abba stand a bit awkward on my zzr 1400 it looks easy when they do it on you tube but in my experience is doesn't go on as easy as that ,pity the sx doesn't come with a centre stand ,so I have just bought a front wheel stand /chock ,put the bike onto the stand ,then lift the back wheel with a paddock stand , I find it much easier and safer..

I use Oxford Premium Paddock stands. £70 each but very strong and well made.  :002:

here is one on you tube ,there are plenty on e bay they all do the same job, just bought  another for my sx coming SOON the one I bought has now been reduced to £19.99 inc postage cant be robbed , they will support the bike on its own ,so you can then fit a paddock rear stand for your maintenance  without the fear of your bike falling over, it happened to me zzr went over not fitting the paddock stand correctly , but once in the stand it isn't a problem , I found the abba awkward there is a knack to putting them on, I also scratched my zzr frame fitting it , so I sold my abba and use this method works for me

I agree. I also have the ABBA stand and find it awkward. I ride my bike into the front wheel chock when I park. If I need the rear wheel up for chain adjustment or something I use my Pitbull paddock stand. Very easy and safe.
