Premium Member Tazmool Posted May 30, 2020 Premium Member Share Posted May 30, 2020 Hello everyone, Having just received my T7 yesterday, and some 1st services being not far into the future I'm curious if anyone has ideas, experiences, tips on how to service the bike. I am trying to stay away from installing a center stand, mainly due to the weight (would like to keep this bike as light as possible) However, if its too much of a problem, I will install one, as a last resort. So, how do you pickup the bike and keep it upright to service it? I do have a set of race stands for my R6, they're being used right now, and the rear uses spools (which the Tenere 700 cannot use) Does anyone use race stands? (and automatic chain oiler, and rear sprocket guard may make this more difficult?) Can you use one of those floor-jack-type lifts like people do on cruisers? I would like to be able to pickup the bike and do oil changes, filters, and tire-replacements, chain cleaning/oiling hopefully with out getting a center stand.... (I am doing a tubeless conversion on the bike soon too, for those in the field puncture ease of repair times) Any ideas, tips, experiences welcome! If you have photos, post them up as well!
