Benelli TRK 502 Center Stand

Lubricating chain on my TRK can be such a pain and it often requires two person to complete the job, one to hold the bike into side way position and the other to lubricate the chain. Whilst I was searching online for Benelli TRK 502 Center Double Stand to ease that job, I found there is a factory called MotoSkill in Surat Thani in Thailand who manufactures motorcycles center / double stand.

Since going to Surat Thani just for a stand from Kuala Lumpur is not viable, they recommended me to collect the stand at SK Bike Shop in Hatyai which I agreed. If you’re wondering, why I didn’t ask them to post it over to Kuala Lumpur? I preferred someone to install it rather than doing it by myself. (Trust me, it took some effort to get it installed)

One week before I head off to Hatyai, I’ve asked SK Bike Shop Owner to do the necessary arrangements with MotoSkill and get the Benelli TRK 502 Center Double Stand for me. Once the stand has arrived, I went to SK Bike Shop in Hatyai which is quite near to Khlong Hae floating market and got the stand installed on my motorcycle.

How is the stand quality like?

Before acquiring MotoSkill stand, I did found a cheaper stand but the steel quality was way off if I compare them with MotoSkill brand. I can recommend this as I’ve already tried to lift my bike few times now and it didn’t take much effort for a 210KGs machine.

How much does the stand cost?

The retail price from MotoSkill was THB3500 and SK Bike Shop charged me the same price including installation. Please note price may change from time to time and you can contact Ann for latest pricing.

Do I need to pay any deposit before I go to SK Bike Shop?

No, I didn’t pay any deposit. I guess it is all based on trust and I really appreciate this.

Can SK Bike shop ship items to all over Thailand or World wide (International Shipping)?

Yes, they can ship all over Thailand and world wide. Please contact Ann to do the necessary arrangements.

Can I get other brand motorcycle’s stand or accessories?

Yes, you can. Please contact Ann and she will try her best to sort it out for you.
