So Rob, I'm not sure what bike you're referring too, but my GSX-S1000 swingarm has very nicely made spool mounts. I use mine all the time and it's a simple one man operation to get it on and off my pitbull..
I was not referring to our GSX-S Family, We all know what they have it.
My stones were thrown by me at the Manufacturer's models which use a chain for the drive to the wheel, but do not provide provision for the bobbins/spools/reels call them what ever for chain and wheel maintenance.
Suzuki are much better than Honda in this regard. Hence my example of the CBR Family.
One strong reason against buying the Ducati 1100 Scrambler Sport over the GSX-S1000, was no tapped holes in the swingarm for the reels.
Monster 800/821 get them, Scrambler 800 (it's based on the Monster 800), does not.
Just BECAUSE it's not a Race Replica Sport Bike like a GSX-R, R1, Ninja 1000R type, that's NO reason why all dual swingarm bikes CANNOT be made with provision for lifting spools.
(The Background being paddock stands were needed for true racing bikes as centre stands were ditched because they could tip the bike in a corner.
The paddock stand allowed the slick rear tyred wheel to get a new tyre or wet tyre.
Routine maintenance of a chain was and is incidental to racing).
I am saying to the OEM's - times have changed, fit the tapped holes to all dual swingarms, and don't say 'their not racebikes' as the 'do nothing' excuse anymore.
