Rear Spool Slider Size?

Recommended Posts

spiekut
Hey everyone, this has probably been answered somewhere else. However, I just got front and rear stands for my bike over christmas and now I need to buy some rear spool sliders but have no clue what size I should be looking for. Figured id pose the question on here. I know sites like revzilla will fit the part to your bike but I have a discount on another website but from the looks of it they can not match a part size that will fit my bike.

thats the stands I got.
 
wondering what size spool slider i should buy so i can lift up my back as well as my front over the winter to avoid flat spots and eventually do my cleaning in the spring.
 
Thanks!

The FZ07 is not pre-drilled/tapped for spools. there are clamp-on kits online, as well as spool type axle sliders.
your best bet will be to get the paddle attachments http://www.kapscomoto.com/product_p/smi3001-p.htm
the head-lift stand top would also be useful if you're planning to do any front end work that requires for removal

I would suggest returning the stands you bought and shopping around craigslist for a Pitbull front headlift stand and a Pitbull rear stand. They come with both paddle and spool attachments in case you ever have a bike that uses spools and prefer it over the paddle. If you can't return them you could also try selling them if you opt for Pitbull stands.
 
The downside of the aftermarket spool adapters is that they dont allow for chain adjustment. They only get the rear wheel off the ground. That's it. There's been one design where you have to drill into your swingarm. However if you're not comfortable with that, you limit yourself to available solutions. 
 
There's been a couple threads on what other members use. Hope this helps!

I got the T-Rex spool adapters that clamp around the swingarm, and found a Pitbull spool rear stand on Craigslist for $50 (he included the paddle adapters too!). Love 'em.

Don't bother returning them for pitbull stands, I've got a venom front stand and it works just fine. Your two options: one, buy the pad attachment listed in a post above (so you can remove the wheel) and buy spools that go through the axel; option two buy the clamp on spoil adapters (with these you can do everything without the pads). They are both probably very similar in price.

Seriously lucked out for sure. He just had no use for it since he sold his bike, said it had been sitting in his garage for a few years in a corner (the stand). I have a rear stand I got from Harbor Freight, it uses paddles and was about $30, I felt like it was going to bend the first time I used it so I'm glad I got the Pitbull, that thing is a tank.

The OES spool sliders look great I think I'll pick that up! Thanks for all the information guys and glad I don't have to change my stands. The faster I get them the faster I can prop it up to avoid flat spots and give it a cleaning so the beast can be released in the fall!
