Question Anyone Assembled their Ducati Rear Paddock Stand

Geeez, what a pain in the @rse

Took me 2-hours, due to short screws that meant I needed to bend some bits, also some small manufacturing defects that prevented holes lining up.

Good reminder of the fun ahead working on/with Italian stuff.

So, my question to anyone that has one, is the axle support arm horizontal, or angled like this:

Thats why i haven't gone for one of them, they look cheap and remind me of a micron stand. Im getting a Pierobon rear stand and a Harris front stand

I took about half an hour and am by no means a mechanic, far from it! Mine seemed to go together eventually, bit fiddly but together none the less. And certainly isn't angled like that, I would suggest taking it apart and try again? Failing that go to the dealer get them to sort it, if that's where you got it from? I didn't have to bend any bolts etc that's for sure! I wouldn't be happy with that fella.

Yup, this is going back to the dealer, or simply the bin :roll eyes:

Re quality, I spoke to a guy at FG Gubelleni, the manufacturer of this, plus the previous one piece item ..... obviously my words where a little lost.

I didn't alter the geometry in any way, just removed some burrs and squeezed shoulders a little so the nuts would reach bolt heads.

To me it seems miss-manufactured.

ok i put the bike on the newly constructed stand on level ground outside, the result is as suspected. measuring from the floor to the tip of the foot peg, the spindle side is 1cm lower than the other. I think that sounds reasonable and i have two theories but they might be complete toss here goes, when your spinning the back wheel round cleaning / lubing the chain you do it from the chain side so as you spin the wheel round you are likely to push it away from you ever so slightly, i mean pushing against it as you push the wheel round, if it was 100% flat or even worse, biased the other way, i think you might find the bike starts to come off the spindle. hence its safer to have it slightly cambered towards the spigot and makes no difference to the paddock stand ease of use. My next thought was if someone was sat on the bike i.e to get a feel for the pedal heights for example the bike does seem to sit absolutely straight with someone sat on it (we tried that as well).

Now Xbox if your is like 3-4cm down on one side then thats about as much use as the side stand!

three pics, the side on pic has nothing to do with the side stand, i just thought you can never get too many pics of a Tri on a side stand on a nice day.

I was going to get one, but the price difference was the equivalent of 130 euros between what they wanted and the usual price for a rear stand. Outrageous for a bit of bent metal pipework!

Will the stands available online for the 1198 fit or is it a different size?

I like how the handle goes towards the front of the bike on that one.
