Having knee issues, I wanted to have a way to better support the bike when my passenger gets on and off.
This Ride Off stand does just that.
Plus's: When stopped at the end of the ride, I can use the bikes reverse to set the bike up on the stand, with both of us on board. I can also simply ride off, again when we're both on board. Installation is easy as long as you know the right ride fastener is reverse thread.
With no one on board and putting the bike up on this stand like the original, you have to be show and careful. The bike will go up on the stand real quick and easy! I mean really easy!
This is not the OEM or original stand. One must be prepared for that.
Some things I cannot do with this stand is rotate the rear tire to check the tread for nails when it's up on this stand. I can also not rotate the front tire, sliding it on it's tread surface, like I could do on the OEM center stand.
A block of plywood can be used under this stand's feet to raise the rear tire off the ground along with the suspension height adjustment at zero. However even with a 3/4 inch thick piece of plywood, the rear tire still touched the concrete floor. Also with this stand up on a board, it will take 2 people to rock the bike off the "ride off" center stand. The pressure on the rear tire will not allow one to ride off if the stand is engaged with wood. There is just not enough traction.
So my point is that in order to rotate the tires, a motorcycle jack is the best bet. One can always check tires or get the valve stem in filling position by rolling the bike on the ground. That's the standard with bikes that have only a side stand.
This ride off stand is a great choice for my knee situation. It is vary stable to board the bike. No reduced lean clearance like a Landing-Gear system or trike converting zero lean. And under $200.... worth the differences and feature over the OEM center stand.
I purchased this item after changing my rear tire and injured myself trying to put my 1800 on center stand , I ordered mine from eBay when it arrived I installed it . My OME came off very easy and this one would have went on as easy except It took some time lining up the screws when putting the new one on. Easy install on 1800 just two screws , they go on a lot easier once you line up the spacers correct so the screws will line up with holes
It is easy to install even though it need little power to open it but its only two bolts and thats it ... best thing to have to help your back from getting hurt while trying to pull the goldwing up on the stand ... i'm little short and I cant push the bike off the stand easly so when I have this stand just put the bike on gear and it easly go of the stand... I really do like it
I have been wanting one of these ride off stands for a while thinking it would make it easier to steady the bike upright. So I recently bought one. 1st issue is lack of instructions with the stand. Got the right side hex nut bolt off only after having to go buy larger hex set and trying one by one until I found the one that fit. 2nd issue (again from lack of instructions) I ended up rounding the bolt head on the left side trying to loosen it up. It cost me $60 to find out from a motorcycle tech that the right side had a reverse thread bolt. Would have been nice to know BEFORE I rounded off that bolt head. OK got the Right bolt out and ready to install the ride off stand. After installation, I find the exact same results as pere1543 review. My bike is leaning to the right. The left stand leg is approx. 1/4 inch off the ground with the foot stand shouldering the weight of the left side. The stand would not put my bike up while on the cement floor in my shop as it just slid along the floor. I rolled it back into the ally and tried it again. AGAIN, like pere1543, my reverse gear began slipping and would not pick up the bike. I called Wingstuff to express my dissatisfaction. Was told to call the manufacturer. I was given a phone #. I called 4 times in a 2 hour period and got a busy signal each and every time. Now, I am not an engineer, but if you have several people expressing the exact same problems, there is something wrong. WINGSTUFF, I will be contacting you so we can work something out. AS for a rating, can I give it a 0/5.!!!!!
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
