Venom Paddock Stands

Hey everyone, I seem to remember some saying they got the Venom Paddock stands for their NM4, and that they worked out great. I can't find that thread anywhere now.

So I decided to go ahead and pick them up...they are too small for the forks, I can't get my bike up on them. For reference I am adding the link to Amazon where I picked them up...DO NOT GET THESE STANDS!!!!!!

Not sure why you're having an issue because they worked perfectly on mine. Pictures attached.

I also have a set of Venom Paddock Stands that worked fine on my 2016 NM4. I have since completed fabricating and installing a center stand as described on this forum and that eliminated most of the need for the stands. I do recall that it was necessary to adjust the width separating the support pads but then had no problem.

2016 NM 4 DELIVERED AUGUST 2015

MODS: Honda tall windscreen, modified NC700S center stand, Honda rear center console, rear carrier with passenger backrest, modified standard garage door opener installed, rear right foot brake moved to Silver Wing master cylinder on left handlebar. Replaced Honda rear carrier with Datona unit. Installed vintage TriBar holder and Samsonite top box.
Bikes, brother's Harley Duoglide, Hondas CB92, CB77, CB750 K2, CX500 and now NM 4-2, SilverWing.

You guys are right, all I had to do was bend out the arms and it fit, was a pain in the butt to take it down alone though, I was afraid I was going to drop it, ended up putting a dent and tearing some of the rubber on the left rear one.

Hey there.
If I am cheap and poor can I get either just a front or just a rear to change my oil and lube the chain?
If so would getting the rear one be the way to go?

Thanks.

If that's all you need, Velcro the front brake grip to keep it on, put any kind of jack under the bike (silver pivot joint under seat), jack up till rear wheel slightly off the ground. This pushes toward kickstand.

Now you can easily turn rear wheel and service chain. Have the Venom, this is easier.

I find the problem with the rear stand is that the rubber pads contact exactly on the rear axle nuts.
This makes it so you can't do a chain adjustment while it is on the stand.
I did the trick with the floor jack on the suspension. It was easy to just barely get the rear wheel off the ground to lube chain, but it makes the angle pretty bad so you have to lay down to do it.
