Warning:

ONLY WORKS IF YOU HAVE FENDER ELIMINATOR. I'm sure there are other that work with the ugly arse stock fender.

You need m10 x 1.5 spools.


I use the $30 tubular one from Harbor Freight. Been 2 years and going strong! I also use the front tire drive in stand from harbor as well. I don't trust the rear without a front support. You have to swap out the rear stand supports.

The Oxford Big Black Bike Rear Stand Spool Support cost me $19.95 plus S&H from RevZilla. Oxford Big Black Bike Rear Stand Spool Support - RevZilla

I used a "Venom" rear stand when I had mine. Worked perfect without the fender eliminator kit, but you obviously have to stand the bike up straight to engage it and lift. You can use a rear stand without a front one, all day long. But don't use a front one without a rear stand in place unless you want your bike to fall.
If you have lots of money to blow, go for the "Pitbull" stands. Probably the best out there.
Lots of threads on bike stands (and pictures) on the 650 forums, do a search!

See post #186. Put Bull forward stand works great on my wife's Vulcan S:

https://www.vulcanforums.com/forums/...-stand-19.html

It helps if you add an extension to the handle as it requires quite a bit of down force to lift the bike but once it's up it holds the bike solid as a rock and very safe. I fitted a piece of PVC pipe over the handle to extend it.

Thanks to all for the replies. I will get the Pit Bull rear stand (front facing handle) from Revzilla when they have the spools back in stock. Talking about spools: which ones are better, the aluminum or plastic ones?

These are the spools I installed on our Ď16 Vulcan S; works great.

Thanks again to all! I ordered the Pit Bull rear stand, and a suitable set of spools.

rear stand for Vulcan S

The venom rear stand will work, probably not as sturdy as the pit bull, the trackside front stand works.

The spoils are 10mm with 10mmx 1.25mm thread

It helps to have a helper on the right side of the bike to help guide the lift into the spool on that side as well as to help steady the bike. If you use an extension to extend the handle of the lift you'll have to lift the side stand and foot peg up as you lift the bike; not a problem but it helps. Once up the bike is rock solid stable. Once it's up you can remove the extension from the handle.

I am an old and small guy, so I will definitely not try to do this on my own!
