Spools for front and back?

My dealer is supposed to be delivering my Ninja 300 this coming weekend. I plan to spend the afternoon adding some frame sliders, spools.

It's my understanding that the Ninja 300 uses 10mm spools for front and back. Can anyone verify this?

I know there are some specific Ninja 300 spools out there but I really wanted to get the green billet aluminum ones shown here. I think they'd look pretty hot on the SE version.

Any standard 10mm spool will work.. Not sure what you mean by front spool though..

Note, that if it says 10mm KTM it will not work, KTM used a different thread pitch than all the other bikes..

Do you need spools for the front to use the lift stand :S?

I got the yoshi rear race spools and some loctite and installed both of them in literally 60 seconds.

And yes you need spools to lift the front to my knowledge.

There's a 2 types of front stands. One lift your bike off by the frame and the other by the forks. They don't use spools as far as I know. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Are a set of spools and a rear stand enough to, say, change your oil?

Yeah it's good enough. Front stands is used when you want to take off the wheel or whatever. I only own a rear stand at the moment. I put it on the rear stand when I need to work on it. You can roll the bike back and forth while it's on the stand, very convenient.

Correct TMD. Basically 2 styles of front stands... under the triple tree or under the lower part of the forks.

Neither require spools but the "triple tree" style does require the correct size of pin to fit into the hole in the lower triple.

The stand that just goes under the forks usually uses a pad setup for some traction and not to scuff the forks.


Triple Tree style




Under Fork Style
