    Under yoke front Paddock Stand needed

    Hi does anyone use an under yoke front stand on they're 900 Tornado, i called Harris today and they say they don't do a pin to fit
    i think the bore size is 28mm and the outer lip 34mm which the pin would fit in which is probably the biggest ive seen

    many thanks in advance Haydn

    Hi Haydn, I believe you need a headstock lift pin of 28 mm dia x 60 long for the Tornado.

    The other option is to
    modify a pin to take a 1/2" drive socket, then you can just select the appropriate socket to fit whatever bike you are lifting.

    Hi Lawrence many thanks, i see the MV Augusta has a 28mm dia hole but harris say it needs a B series kit god knows what that is but it seems the outer size of the pin needs to be 34 then stepped down to 28mm as those front stands hold all the weight of the bike on the pin so need to be a tight fit or the pin will bend or snapp ill keep looking

    I've made pins for those stands out of aluminium alloy. They seem to work OK. You want a reasonably loose fit so it's easy to get the stand in and out of the headstock. And the pin needs to be short enough to fit between mudguard and/or fork brace and bottom triple clamp. A tapered lead on the end also facilitates getting it into the hole.

    I think I've probably misled you. Sorry about that.
    I've not made one for a Benelli, only a couple of race bikes. I don't know the size of the bore in a Benelli Tornado headstock.

    I bought one of these stands and the pin it came with snapped whilst lifting the front wheel! Make sure you use strong steel pin and buy a good make, there is a lot of strain on the pin!

    I bought a "Black" front yolk lift stand for my Trek .
    I added a 9/16th 65mm long socket and a short bit of old tubing 23mm dia. To the 133mm pin that came with the stand .
    I find it lifts my bike perfectly and securely when the bike is already on a rear stand of course.

    I tried to get it to be a tight fit but that didn't work , so this combo of bits is loose and is easy and secure ! ..

    The Tornado and the RS pins are different diameters BTW.

    Many thanks for all the input the biggest pin size i can find is the Panigale 1199 and MV Augusta at 28.5mm if you want to go bigger the only pins i can find are for single sided swingarm stands added to this the hole is stepped on the Nellie the outer step is 37mm this is the bit that takes all the strain, if you don't step the pin the 28mm section could well bend or snap as i have asked a company if they can machine a pin ill let you know, don't really want to bodge a socket but might have to
