Hi guys, today I bought the Evotech Bobbins and a Daytona paddock stand for the rear tire.

I was very happy with the GP look of this stand.

Unfortunately the hight is not good, as the bike lifts only a inch or so. I guess the stand is too low (picture attached), because the rear tire cannot move freely when on the paddock.

Can you please recommend a specific paddock stand, so I can order a proper one?

Many thanks!

This is the one I have and comes highly recommended by many. I got the one with the removal handle so as to prevent people from tripping over it. Can't go wrong with a Pit Bull.

@Ghettobird, thanks!

Pretty expensive stand I must say. Even without the taxes I need to pay when ordering to be delivered in Europe.

Any alternatives?

Pitbull stands really aren't that expensive. Considering the fact that almost any mod done to our 959s is about the cost of a Pitbull stand, just make the investment.


But to try and help you out, have you looked into other stands are available that doesn't require international delivery? Hard to help since there's really just a couple of paddock stand manufacturers that stand out (Pitbull, Ducati Perf, T-Rex, Oxford, Vortex, Lightech, Woodcraft).



I've never heard any horror stories about cheap paddock stands, so you could try out some no-name off eBay or Alibaba for very cheap.

Why don't you just put taller rollerblade wheels on - like 125's or so

I would agree with what @Dingo suggested. There must be an easy way to make that stand work since you already have it.

For me, I don't mess with anything but Pit Bull anymore.

Thanks! Good idea.

Today I checked if I could return the Daytona paddock stand. At the store I noticed a differend stand. This one is actually able to be adjusted in hight as well!

So I swopped it (picture attached).

The brand is: "Kern-Stabi". Its a bit less sexy, but does do the trick and is stable.

I like the ease of use how to make it wider within one second. You can even detach in two pieces for compact transportation.

I'll take a set of Gee-Tech's over any Pitbull. :nerd:
Hi Moto, I can appreciate your angle but the general consensus on all Ducati and Sport-bike forums is overwhelmingly supportive of Pit-Bull for their quality and service. However, that's not to say others cant make good stands, I'm sure they're out there but for me, Pit-Bull stands are solid, versatile and have not disappointed. Moreover, Pit-Bull product information and service contacts are readily available and they're made in America.

As much as I favor Pitt-Bull's, you already have the stand like @dougo1199 wrote where adding larger wheels on the outside should solve your issue inexpensively. In-line skate wheels would be smooth as @Dingo suggested but casters should work also if you need more height.

For some of us something that is so common is not very appealing. Gee-Tech stands can be seen to be used by many top level race teams around some of the worlds most famous race tracks.

They are a work of art and very aesthetically pleasing. They are a bit more pricier than the Pitbulls but then again, worth every penny.
