Hi all once again. I'm just wondering what type of front paddock stand you fine chaps use. I've read through the previous post called "Paddock stands" but it only really talks about the rear.

After having a look at the front forks, I'm wondering if the universal front stand, (the ones with the 2 prongs sticking out of a triangular mount) might interfere or even damage the rotor sensor thingy as the mount sticks out of the fork pretty low down. The other options are the pin type, as I've noticed the circular indents at the bottom of the forks, or the headstock type. The latter of which I really don't fancy at all.

It's not something that I'll be needing imminently but I'd like to have one ready to hand in case. Any advice would be most gratefully received.

Cheers dudes.

As far as i know, the most common is a rear paddock stand, since regular front stands need a rear stand to work.
I use a rear stand from Amazon, cost me around 40€ and works fine enough. Very handy for chain maintenance!
