    Has anyone got the front stand as I understand there is a problem with some after-market bobbins etc. It seems the rear stand causes no problems and is highly rated.

    Not the zero g Oxford one but I've just ordered an Oxford premium front stand.  Now worried as I've got the front fork sliders and it might not fit.

    Can always take them off for the winter I guess.

    There's also a headstock version of the zero g stand but it's pricey and I've no idea how it works or where it attaches to.  Can't find any videos or instructions.

    Yep, I've got the Zero-G Headstock stand which I recommend.  I've never been happy with the 2/3 other conventional front stands I've tried.  I've got a KTM stand that has pins that insert into the fork bottoms which is better but the 2 headstock stands I now have are the only ones I use now.

    I've got the Zero-G rear stand and Evotech bobbins.  All works well.

    The headstock version has various sized interchangeable pins which slot up into the headstock/steering pivot hole under the lower fork yoke.  So having fork sliders makes no difference, you can leave them in place.

    That's interesting as I have Evotech bobbins front and rear. I need some system to turn the bike around in the garage once I've ridden it in there as there's a rise from the drive. There's no way I can 'pull' the bike into the garage up a slope if I turn it around on the drive.

    I haven't got a photo of the Tiger on the front stand, so here is the Trident so you can see where the pin goes, etc.

    That's very helpful, thank you.

    Is it easy enough to move around though?

    Hi Smithy,
    There's quite a few options to choose from now to spin the bike around in the garage.  Some people turn it on the sidestand but there are turn tables and dollies and axle stands that have wheels.  There's a long trolley thing with a bar out to the side stand and I've seen some fancy orange and grey wheeled stands aimed at BMW GSs I think with multidirectional wheels.
