pjm, thanks for the point to R&G as this is exactly what I was hoping to find. I may ultimately get the center stand too so appreciate your comment re it's aggressive footprint. I want to be able to simply lift the rear tire while the bike is on my lift, which has a front wheel chock. Center stand doesn't work well, since when you're rolled into the chock, moving backward to get the stand down doesn't work well. For the price of these bobbins, seems like an easy solution. Hopefully I can get these shipped to Canada, will try ordering them and give it a try. Curious to me that my dealer's parts guys couldn't have mentioned this as a solution.
Finally bought a lift to get up off the ground, particularly in the winter here when the concrete even in a garage is COLD, and I'm OLD to don't relish the bending and crawling around.
My friend also has an AT, he uses a jack to lift his, so I'm mention it to him as well, as he also has a jackstand.
