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:

As an addition to this thread, I don't know if the Genuine Kawasaki ones above fit the MK1 but the ones for ER6 F/N, and Ninja 300 do.

Part number 012BOY0014 available from Cradley Heath Kawasaki for £22.99 inc P&P

I know I could have put some washer behind the ones on there already but seeing as everything else is nice and shiny plus no more danger of scratching the swing arm. Again.

Don't need washers on the ones I suggested
