Paddock stand bobbins
« on: Aug 04, 2019, 11:32 AM »
Hi all Again, I bought a pair of bobbins of e bay, when fitted I could see straight away they were no good to me, as the bobbins were so close to the swing arm that, my swing arms would soon be scratched, I feel sure this has happened to other members, can anyone make any recommendations please as to what to buy. Many thanks.

I have the OEM Kawasaki ones.

There expensive for what they are, but worth the extra cost!

I learn't this lesson the hard way on my old bike, fitted some cheap Oxford bobbins and consequently chipped chunks of aluminium out of the swing-arm with my paddock stand  :003:

Ordered the OEM ones at the same time as the bike, not making same mistake again.

The Kawa ones are neat, look good fitted and importantly have a protective disk fitted behind it to save your swing-arm!

Assuming you don't have a Rob sized "shed" with all manner of assorted hardware, buy some washers and make spacers so that they don't touch the swingarm.   :211:    Can't imagine you'd spend more than $1 at any hardware store.    :027:
