Hoist the back wheel up on the CB1000R to clean/lube the chain and the like....

I am a little confused with the single swingarm as to how I would do this....

If you notice on the rear axle, there is a cap on it. You can remove this and you get a paddock stand with a pin which fits in there, rather than attaching to the swingarm as you'd normally expect:

Yeah, I needed one for my last bike but didn't bother getting one, knowing that it'd be useless a few months later (now!)

Abba make the best stands... allowing for both front and rear wheel removal as the lifting point is from the swingarm pivot.

They are not cheap but we do get a 10% discount... been a while since I spoke to them so if there are any problems (I doubt there will be) then please let me know.

Save your money, pull the bike over on the side stand, hold it there while the wife/girlfriend/lover/partner/mate lubes the chain for you.

Chain lubed, no dirty hands for you, £50+ saved, result !!

Yeah, that's the usual route for me. That or just spray, then move bike, spray, then move bike, spray...
