Rear stand for V-Star 250
Hi -- new to the forum; I couldn't find this in another post, so I hope it hasn't already been covered.

I've got a 2009 V-Star 250. I'd like to be able to lift the rear wheel easily, mainly to do chain lube and cleaning without the hassle of having to move the bike forward in steps. Is anyone aware of a rear stand that works on these bikes? Or, if not, what do you use to lift the bike to do chain lube and other work?

Thanks, swish24! Looks like just the ticket, and a great price, too. I will give it a go.

A quick add-on here: This was a great suggestion, but doesn't work well for this particular bike. Long story short, it won't fit forward of the axle on the swing arm because the exhaust pipes interfere with it. Rear of the axle, the sprocket bolts can't get past the inner lip of the paddle when the bike's up on the stand, so the wheel can't turn. I got past this -- sort of -- by removing the plastic anti-scratch stuff around the paddle and taking it down to bare metal, but it's still a very tight fit. May try to file the (now bare-metal) lip a bit thinner to clear a bit more space.

Thanks again for a great suggestion; just wanted to add this bit of intel for those who might be looking!
