    Abba Stand Front Lift Arm - Anybody use one

    I have an Abba stand and a front headstock stand but until i work out a way of moving the ABS tubes from my headstock '' hole '' i can not use it, has anybody used the Abba front lift arm and if so where do you use the strap ? I do not have crash bobbins to attach it too ?

    I don't have the specific abba front lift but have used a trolley car jack with a piece of wood on under the header pipes in exactly the same way (see above pic) and it works perfectly. Great for tyre changes etc

    I have been using a trolley jack for years but just splashed out on the Abba front lift arm for the superbike stand For our bike you need to buy an adapter which fits in the axle recess which allows a strap to pull down the back wheel from the stand and raise the front wheel. I have only used it once and it was a bit of a faff but I'm sure it will get easier.

    me too - £10 from machine mart and you can also adjust the height too if so required - rarely use paddock stands now - always the abba !
