While doing the sprocket changes mentioned in an earlier thread, I had the bike up on a Pit Bull Rear Stand with the Sport Classic Top Mounts attached. Right in the middle of the whole process, I noticed the bike leaning to the right! It was sliding off the stand :eek: ! I was really lucky the wheel was still on the bike, 'cause I would have been in bad shape otherwise. I was able to wrestle the bike back straight up and untangle the stand from the chain and start over, but it sure got my attention! So be careful when lifting your bike from under the swingarm: it looks great, but it's a very poor design from a maintenance standpoint. I ended up getting the bike up on the stand, then "bumping" it forward 'til the stand supports were up against the chain adjuster guide. Even then it could still slide forward over time, but at least you'd have more time to keep an eye on it.
