Paddock stand bobbins on a 2020 carbon sport
on: February 05, 2021, 12:26:01 AM
Hmmm ok guys I give up, I've searched on here and the net and ill be buggered if I can figure it out.

So seriously, am I to drill and tap into the swing arm to locate rear stand bobbins? cause there is no location point anywhere on the rear swing arm that I can see?

Or do I use a rear axel spool instead? I would prefer the bobbins but of course if that's not doable?

Apologies in advance for the rookie question and if I have missed a previous thread outlining this

Thanks in advance TuX

Gen-1 has holes for them, don't know why the Gen-2 was produced without them.

I presume because BMW offer a chain tensioner with stand mountings.

Do they now, well that's an important piece of the puzzle isn't it
