Hey everyone,

So I just set up one of the bursig paddock stands. It's quite nice, except one problem: it seems to need some manual adjusting after lifting the bike off the ground. When I get the adapter plate lined up and then lift the bike off the ground, it only lifts the rear tire. The front tire stays on the ground. I've attached a picture below to show you what I mean.

My thinking is I'll have to basically loosen the center bolt and then completely remove the long "adjustment bolt" in order to allow the adapter plate to be rotated clockwise (as viewed from my POV in the picture below), ultimately leveling out the bike and having both tires off the ground. But before I do so, I'm curious if anyone else has run into this kind of issue with this stand and the 848 series, and if they had to do the same thing?

I don't have the Bursig, but I have one of the knockoff models. Mine has a peace of all thread rod that goes from the adapter plate( plate with the two pins that slide into frame) to the plate that the adapter plate is mounted too. If that all thread rod is not adjusted right or comes loose, my front wheel doesn't come off the ground. I can adjust mine without removing any parts from the stand. Small adjustments to my stand make a big difference on weather or not the front comes off the ground and weather or not I'm fighting to just get the stand connected to the bike. It took me a few hours of trial and error to get mine close enough to work, but I sometimes still fight with it. Take your time and you'll get it dialed in.

One thing you need to remember is when you make the adjustment, the lower PIN will not line up directly, so you will need to learn to line up and insert the top pin in enough to pull the handle down and keep the wheels loose on the ground. This will allow you to line up the lower PIN to the frame collar nut.

Once you line the Lower PIN to the nut, then you can run the PINs into both frame holes. A trick I also did(and do for customers as an option is to chamfer the upper PIN to allow it to insert easier, so you may want to consider this as an idea if you continue to have a time at lining it up to the top.

Hammerstime,

I believe we have the same stand. When I first set mine up - the stand locked at the top with only the rear wheel off the ground. Then when i messed around with the adjuster rod and jacked up the bike it wouldn't lock into place. Did you ever encounter this problem? I ended up putting a heave crate next to the handle while i worked on the bike so it would stay raised :)) but that's just a temporary fix...

Sorry D, I don't remember having that problem. Your talking about the stand no locking with the bike in the air right? I got mine set where the front only comes off the ground about a inch and the rear is maybe 3 or 4 inches of the ground. If your trying to get more lift in the front, you might be putting the stand in a bind.

thanks for all the responses. So one question I have is how the horizontal adjustment of the bike is achieved? I imagine its by rotating the adapter plate like the video above suggests. However, wouldn't that mean that the stand itself will be less level with the ground? I guess the adjustment needed is small enough where it doesn't matter, but I'm curious? In that case, I imagine to lift the front tire up one would want to rotate the plate clockwise (i.e. the top of the adapter plate is rotated towards the back of the motorcycle)..

Yes. The thing to remember, is that when the PINs line up when the wheels are on the ground, the front wheel will not come off of the ground. When you adjust the bracket to rotate in the direction you suggested, the lower PIN will now be more forward of the frame hole by about 1/8inch(3-4mm). If it's like this, you are in the right direction, then follow my instructions I mentioned a few days ago.

If you do it that way, you will be golden. My 999's front tire sits about 3-4" off of the ground.

Hmm..so what you're saying is initially rotate the adapter plate so that the engine PIN lines up with the engine frame hole but that the swing arm pivot PIN does not line up with the swing arm pivot hole (i.e. it will be a bit closer to the front of the bike). And then insert the engine PIN partially into its hole, pull the lever a bit and then line up the swing arm pivot PIN with its hole, at which point I can fully insert both PINs into their holes and proceed to lift the bike?

So far I've just been lining up both PINs exactly with their respective holes and fully inserting them before proceeding to lift. But so far this is just lifting the rear tire, so I figure I must be doing something wrong.
