Hi all, this might be a silly question, sorry but I am new to Cats, but did the Cat ever have a centre stand fitted or was it only a side stand from new, I can not find either in the parts list,

Oh thanks for that Oldcat,
I need to get a paddock stand for it then otherwise it will be a pain dropping the back wheel out etc.

No probs m8,

I'm told the best (if a wee bit costly) padock type stand is the abba.

The Abba stand is great if not cumbersome. A paddock stand is a quick and easy one to use.

I use the Abba stand of fettling with a bike and the Abba stand if just keeping it upright to do chain maintenance or whip the wheel off.

Both are great

Some paddock stands require bobbins to be fitted Keith. I was able to get a pre-owned ABBA for a good price, so I might be biased. I find the bike is very stable, it may take a few seconds more to set-up but well worth it. Not knocking the paddocks, but they do seem flimsier in comparison - doubt the bike will tumble over if properly fitted, but I did worry the only time I used a paddock stand that it might fall over on me.
To lift the front wheel you'll need something like a front wheel paddock stand, or possibly a jack under the engine with the ABBA.

You could of course make you're own "ABBA" stand like wot i did.. naughty
Much better than a paddock stand..i use a block of wood and a trolley jack for lifting the front once it's up on the "ABBA" stand..
