BMW Rear paddock stand

Hi,
does anyone have the bmw rear paddock stand. the one for single sided swing arm.
I recently bought a K1300S and fancied this stand, I have been advised by my financial advisor (the wife) that I have spent enough. So I'm going to make one. If anyone out there has this stand would you be good enough to take some sizes for me.

1. the length of the feet
2. the distance in between the feet
3. the height from the floor to the centre of the spigot

Many Thanks
Dave

here's a real good price on one, unless you just want to make one, these work very well.

i tried to copy BMW's type but it just didn't work out well as per my shop is limited to just a welder and a torch. and I'm limited to patience .

Re: BMW Rear paddock stand

I hope you have an inch rule left over or can convert. I just measured my Pit bull rear stand as sold by BMW. The wheels are 21.25" center to center. The spud that goes into the rear drive hub is 16.125" from the ground to center of spud (which spins!). Spud length is 3" and made from nylon or some other hard non metalic substance. The support for the spud is 3" center to center from the "left" wheel. The handle is attached to this vertical support (for the spud)5.125" center to center up from the main axle tube for the wheels. It also is dog legged out at a 35* angle for 10.5" where it returns to perpendicular to the axle for a total length of 26" overall. Hope this helps. Sometimes I wonder if a center stand is the way to go. I plan on making the lift that bolts to the engine base to hold the bike while you do front shock work and such. A good winter project this year. beech

Re: BMW Rear paddock stand

No I never did make that engine lift. I just use the rear stand along with the front stand as needed. I also bought a 20$ scissor jack that I put some non skid on. I use this under the engines and headers of bikes these days rather than the front fork lift. Makes an easy stable situation.
