    Ok,after recent problems with the stand reported on social.Here is my story...
    Barracuda - RUBBISH ,pins are faulty and can brake.Also stand is very very unstable.I've returned my after changing 2 pins,first one was badly machined , had hexagonal shape and was bent from bad CNC process ,the second pin was very different,just normal round shape,after 2 MONTH WAITING FOR NEW PIN Guess what...The new pin had a big crack after I've used it only 2 times ,returned the rubbish to the shop...ridiculous
    Another guy posted on facebook completely broken pin,luckily the bike didn't fall over his leg or something.

    BikeLift stand ,ordered as exchange for Barracuda,can't get money refund because of long time waiting this option has expired.Came with wrong pin,was for the previous CB. Took nearly 2 more month to get the right pin they had to manufacture them.They have sold a product they never had in stock,great job!
    Was going to pickup the new pin and the stand from the shop ,but seen pictures on facebook of people having similar issue like Barracuda,pin is strong ,but to thin,also the stand is not stable.So rejected the stand.Bike has bad lean ,not stable,pin might get bent with use.
    Not only manufacturers fault,HONDA made the hole for the pin to thin,only 18mm previous model and other bikes with single sided swingarm have at least 24mm or more.

    So,just get ABBA stands or similar,like Skylifts,etc...All other options are not safe,bike wobbles like jelly,pins go bent or broken.

    Regards,sorry for the long story but FFS have the bike since january and still without stand!

    No problem!

    Honda created the problem, even dealers are having difficulty.
    I have contacted Honda Japan. (Just got bounced back to the UK)
    Asked local dealer, Bill Smiths Chester, who told be they use the sidestand and a trolley jack under the engine...FFS?!?!
    Finally had a response from Japan, they suggested a hoist. Seriously. You couldn't make this shit up.
    The fact that this hasn't been thought through at design stage is a fu*king disgrace. Wan*ers.

    And dont get me started on manuals..or the lack of them.
    They can shove Maris up their arse.

    Annnnnnd breathe.........

    I feel your pain. the engineers who 'design' this stuff should be required to work on their creations too... but, no, they're AutoCAD specialists, not 'real' motorcyclists. I see the same in my industry (housing construction), and think the solution is the same - architects should be forced to live in dwellings they designed. that'd soon lead to increased real-world practicality!
    piling the mileage on...

    I have an ABBA that I'm currently using.
    Works well enough I suppose, but it's a pain in the arse to use after paddock stands..

    I know this is months later, but you should adjust the chain on the side stand. If you use a paddock stand on the rear wheel and adjust the chain, you're keeping the axle stationary(stand) and cranking the whole bike back and forth. Remember- your axle is your point of adjustment, so when you run a stand, that is now immovable. You're rolling the whole bike on the front wheel. This will put a lot more stress on the spanner tabs. It's also MUCH harder to turn the adjuster like this so I don't know what other forces are at play it wasn't designed to take.

    Put it in neutral and put it on the side stand, that way all you're doing is allowing the rear wheel to turn a little.

    You need to able to spin the wheel to check for any tight spots in the chain. If the chain is used it is normal to get tight spots.---You find the tightest spot and adjust the chain there.---That way you know the chain will never become rigid between the sprockets overloading the shaft bearings and accelerating chain and sprocket wear.
