Title: Any good stands for the C10? Able to change tire without fender mod?
Post by: Lonestar Cruzer on November 30, 2016, 04:54:59 pm
I know all about the putting the center stand on wood and all that, I'm just wondering if anyone has a front or rear stand for their C10 that works great, or grants clearance on the rear to do a tire swap. If not, are people interested in one?

No need for wood or fender mod to remove the rear wheel easily.
 Simply unbolt the four nuts  where the drive shaft mounts to the Final drive.
Remove the wheel and final drive as one unit. So much easier to do and your supposed to check/lube  in there anyway.

See pic and part number 92015A (4 nuts)

For the front wheel a scissor jack or hydraulic jack  works well under the engine but put a strap on the center stand (holding forward)  to prevent it from flipping back up.

Never thought of removing the rear like that, didn't run into that method scouring the CoG forums looking for bevel drive removal instructions either. Thanks for the tip Mike. As for the front tire, I used that method when I changed discs / new pads, sort-of. I had the wheel fender off for paint already so I just jacked it up enough to relieve the tension and rolled the front wheel out.

Awesome trick. Thanks!
