Hello! In this section of the Black Pro Range FAQ I’ll be covering the extras that we do in regards to our Ramps, Stand and accessories range. More specifically- our Pins and Bobbin Hooks. I aim to cover everything you should need to know but if you do have a question that I’ve not been able to answer, please leave your question as a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

These are replacement/additional pins for our Black Pro Range Height Adjustable Front Head Stand.

Black Bobbin Hook Adapters B5088
These bobbin hook adapters are used in paddock stands to lift bikes that use bobbins. The hooks pull upwards under the bobbins while not letting them roll forward or backward, but still allow them to turn, so that the bike can be leveraged on to the stand. These hooks have a pin diameter of 13mm and a length of 110mm and can be used with a variety of paddock stands. These hooks are available for £6.29 at Ghostbikes.com
–Frequently Asked Question–
Q- Will these pins fit in my stand?
A- If you can find the diameter of a pin that fits in your stand or the diameter of the hole in the stand, you can know for sure. If the pins you use in your stand have a 19mm diameter at the end that goes into the stand – then yes, our pins should fit in there.
Q- Do you sell bobbins?
A- Yes we do! We don’t have an Black Pro Range bobbins but we do have Oxford Paddock Stand Bobbins. They’re only available online though and we only have them with an M8 thread [1.25], making them suitable for a BMW S1000 RR [and maybe a Suzuki as they use M8 threads most commonly]. Consult your bike manufacturer for the bolt thread and size or have a good look around on Google and online forums.
Q- Do these pins not come with the stands?
A- The Height Adjustable Front Head Stock Stand that we do does come with a number of different pins at different sizes, but not all of the sizes. The stand is supplied with the following pin sizes: 13mm, 15mm, 16.5mm, 17mm, 18mm. So if you want a 23mm, pin, for example, it would have to be purchased seperately.
