Abba Stand issue
« on: May 12, 2018, 09:22:17 AM »
I had an Abba stand for the full throttle, after getting the MTS I contacted the company and they advised to get the MTS 1200 adaptor kit which I did. Whilst the stand works it doesn't lift the back wheel - as you can see in the pictures. Anyone have any suggestions - and what do you do to lift it if you don't have a centre stand. (I've contacted Abba and await their reply)

The only way to make it work would be to raise the stand by placing on a board or plank or something similar . Cant see from the pics how much extra height you would need. I have used the Abba stand across many bikes, never come across that problem before. I used a paddock stand on my 950.

Thanks for the replies. I put a temporary board down and as you can see, it now lifts the back wheel. I'll get a builders board thats a bit more substantial. No reply from Abba through......

Nice one m0mrr - good fix

Don't have something too heavy in your topbox otherwise your back wheel will be touching the floor again  :084: :745:

Abba replied;

"Thanks for the pic and sorry to see the bike is not lifted fully off the ground.
 
I can only assume the 950 model is different to that of the other new multistrada models in suspension height? As we do not have this issue with the other Multistradas.
 
The only suggestions I can offer is either to return the stand and we will fully refund you.
 
Or we have a neat adjustable base plinth that goes under the stand (used on taller trial type bikes normally) that we could supply you free of charge. This will then raise the stand up around 1.5 to gain the normally amount the rear wheel would be off the ground.
 
Let me know what you would like to do
 
Thanks"

I have asked them to send me the plinth, will let you know how I get on
