Here's a discovery that may benefit fellow Scrambler owners who've been contemplating the acquisition of a rear stand but have been putting off the expense. As it happens, the Ducati Performance f.g. rear stand that accessorized the 2003/2004 Ducati 749 and 999 fits the Scrambler frame perfectly. Since these two models have been out of line for a number of years, orphaned stands can be found on Craigslist and eBay from time to time for not a lot of money. I just snagged one for $35.

I found that any generic stand will work on the rear. I just wrapped the normal plastic blocks in some soft rubber and lift using the flat spots at the end of the swing arm.

I had to have an axle stand specially made up though. The Monster 821 cups fit fine but the close proximity of the footpegs to the axle on the Scrambler, meant normal Abba stands are not wide enough.

I picked up a generic swingarm stand from Horror Freight for $25 that works great. Should work on damn near any other bike with dual swingarms.

I bought a couple of spin bobin that can hold the rear stand forks. It works fine and is safer than the pads that usually slip, expecially lifting the bike alone

Hello

I'm currently using a standard rear stand for my Scrambler. The only difficulty I encounter is due to the shape of the swingarm which goes downwards on its rear part. The rear stand blocks are sliding along the swing arm. If they slide too much the rear wheel touches again the ground.

When I don't need to remove the rear wheel, I lift the bike with the rear stand blocks under the chain tensioners. If I need to remove the wheel, I put the rear stand blocks under the swingarm and I secure the bike so it can move forward, that would allow the blocks to slide along the swingarm.

I tried the Harbor Freight universal stand and it was a piece of crap...did not fit the lower frame well and tended to slide. So I returned it. The pads on the Ducati Performance stand for the 749/999 fit perfectly and don't slip.
