will my ABBA stand fit on my 950 Adventure?
I know I can use the centre stand for most work…

Nothing listed for the Adventure, just the SM. I wondered if anyone on here knew whether the SM kit fits the Adventure?

Get in touch with the guys at abba - they are (or were) very helpful. Saying that, the normal abba will only give you what the centre stand already does. If you want to get serious, then you need the skylift .......... or maybe a bench.

I’ve tried enquiring, but received no response.
a trivial query, anyway, as otherwise I shouldput the Abba stand up for sale…just wondered whether it might come in useful (if I needed to remove the swingarm , gawd help me)

I'd be amazed if the SM kit doesn't fit. Same kit fits RC8 and 1290SDR. I bet it fits all big KTMs. Maybe someone with a 950/990 can confirm theirs looks like this.

The issue might be the height and not the fittings.
Years ago ABBA did a trail bike stand that was a couple of inches taller than the sports bike stand.

I suppose a good test would be to offer it up to your 950 to see if it's even tall enough to lift the bike.

If the swinging arm spindle on the 950 is the same as the 990 SMs, it will fit. The same adaptor I use for bith my 1290 SDR and 1190 Adv also fitted my 990 SMT.

You do need a bobbin of some sort fitted to the swinging arm if you want to use the front wheel lift strap though.

when I purchased my skylift they specifically asked for which LC8 it was, they then set it up for you before shipping.
I got it with the hoist thingy in the center of the 3 holes, I got the Monster 695 hooked up with the KTM adapters and in lowest hole.
I reckon the ADV swingarm pivot shaft is just a tad higher than the SM(T), so putting it in the top hole will certainly get you close.
the adapters for the LC8 are all the same.
I use the M10 paddock bobbin on the swingarm for the strap (horizontal and wheely lift).

My Abba is barely tall enough to lift my 1190 if I want to remove the wheels. It'll do it but with a 1" thick board under the feet of the stand it's fine.

Good thought. I never considered that.

See attached pic of the Abba kit I have for my 950SM. Never used the stand on my Adv950 as it has the centre-stand but just tried and the adaptors definitely fit this bike. The swingarm pivot looks about the same distance from the ground so can't see why it wouldn't work. Will try it sometime but the bike is blocked in by heaps of junk in the garage at the moment.

For info this kit replaces the standard adaptor kit that I think now comes with Abba stands. I recently bought the kit for my son's Yamaha R125 and had to also buy the standard fittings to go with this. I bought the stand years ago secondhand and the SM950 fittings were all it came with. The fittings in the photo that someone posted earlier in the discussion would need to be fitted over the standard adaptors I think.
