Did that happen all by its own, or as you were lifting the bike?

I don't know anything about that company or their reputation, but you'd certainly expect a $70 paddock stand to be built better than that.

I have used Oxford products in the past, mostly security locks, with no probs. That was a long time ago though.

That's a real bummer Zac. I've got an Oxford tank bag that's well made and I love it. Not defending them tho.
Always gutting when you damage a new bike. :(

I just read this properly. Are you saying the front wheel and frame of the bike are 'bent'? Just from a topple?

I couldn't count how many 'topples' I have had over the years, and the only damage was scratches or a busted mirror, and that includes bikes weighing 250kg+

How the **** could the frame be bent? :eek:

Zac.. I am so sorry to read/see about this. First thing I said to myself was "Son of a "*itch".

They also put out a very good dictionary. Quite big and heavy though.

And if your fortunate enough to have a degree from Oxford, you're probably doing quite well in life.

Shouldn't the handle bars be straight while on the stand, not locked in full turn?
Is your garage surface leveled?
I love that color, wished they had all white for the cbr300rr.

I have been using a rear paddock stand with my CBR3R for a few months now, with no problem. Obviously, they are very popular with sportsbike owners, and all racers use them without issues, too.

Mine uses the bobbin and fork method though. I have no experience of the type which simply sit under the swingarm. With the bobbin type, the forks cannot spread apart under load and the bike drop off - could this have happened with yours? How much flex is in the stand frame? Can the arms be pushed apart, far enough for one swingarm to slip out?

The other possibility, already mentioned, is that the bike wasn't vertically stable because the steering was locked over. I always have the steering in the dead-ahead position, which is how everybody else uses them, to my knowledge.

my venom stand just came in today. now im contemplating if i should use it.....
I only use my rear wheel stand when I'm working on the bike. For day to day parking in the garage, it sits on the side stand.
