Oh duh. Now i see it.

If someone can get measurements for me I can book some waterjet time. I have an idea so it would bolt together but be able to ship flat. I wouldn't mind taking this on for the new year.

Custom metalwork. PM me with your ideas.

Curious as to what people in general would want the stand for, working on or storage, or both?

Tenkate do a really neat storage and transport stand but it's only for CBR's and R6 yams with some modification, don't know if it'd work with a daytona with mods?

A stand similar to that but that held the engine via the rear lower mount and rested somewhere towards the front lower of the engine, so you could use it to store the engine and also work on it, leaving just the lower crankcase half in the stand would be kinda neat

We made a couple stands in 2014 for our spare motors. We just used 1" square tube and welded some tabs for the rear motor mounts. The benefit of this over the K and L stand (which we also have) is that you can remove the head or work on the motor while it's still on the stand.

Yeah this immediately crossed my mind after I had the motor in the K&L. It would be fine if I was merely looking to display the motors but I need something solid so I can service them. We just need to get someone to cook up a run of stands like TJ's above.

That's exactly what we need. I drop my engine every winter anyway, so it'd be nice to do everything with more space out of the frame.

@Thatkid what sort of measurements do you need? Maybe GMike can get some while his engine is out. I'm about to drop mine too but I'd rather have the stand ready to go so it's not sitting on the sump all winter.

I would need a height from the floor to the lower rear mount and from the lower mount to the upper mount. The first measurement would need to account for some space under the oil pan. Then a general width. As long as it's a bit wider than the widest mount location, spacers can pick up the slack. And hopefully this one makes sense - From the spine (back upright) to the mount locations. This dimension may be arbitrary since it would just account for the lean angle of the motor, but if there is a motor available might as well grab it.

I'm on it like carbon on the Daytona Moto2 765 ;) I'll take all the measurements when I get home from work.

Ok this is what I've got (red for width blue for height):

Width at widest point: 18" (Stator cover to clutch cover)
Width of upper rear mounting point 6.25"
Width of lower rear mounting point 6.5" Note there is a 1" offset between the two (not shown) with the lower off to the clutch side of the bike so some spacers/ wiggle room would be needed (notice on the photo TJ posted of the Riders Discount stand that the tabs are inboard or outboard on the upright)

Height of floor to center of upper rear mount: 19"
Height from floor to center of lower rear mount: 9" (with accommodation for clearance)

Distance from rear mounting points to center of upright on my A&R stand is 7" but you probably want to shorten that up.

Lemme know if this works for you or if you want more measurements @Thatkid
