Today I decided to give my new Burgnam 650 (300 miles :) ) a clean to remove some of the Kamikaze flys.......
Everything went easily, but I could'nt rotate the front wheel to clean it. I ended up having to roll it 6 feet forwards and clean it in sections. I am a little pushed for space.
Is there an easy way to allow me to rotate the front wheel?
I do have a front paddock stand leftover from my Gixxer, that slots onto the bottom of fork legs. I was thinking about using this to lift the wheel off of the deck?

Any ideas?

Hi Andy!

What I do when I am washing the bike is this.
I have a piece of 2x4 wooden block just long enough that it will fit under the bottom of the fork leg when its turned full lock in either direction. Then all I do is reach up and turn the steering so that it is straight. The wheel then moves freely.

That's one of the nice things about a forum --it can save you a little time,
I would have come up with something as simple ---in a few YEARS .
nice idea :idea:

I've got a Lockhart stand that I use. Left over from my CCS days. I also have a swingarm stand, but it's the type that requires "buttons" on the swingarm. Won't work on the 650.
