I have to agree, it would be nice to have spools. My bike is generally only on the stand for maintainence, so it isn't too anoying though.showdawg said:
Generally the swingarm aluminum is not thick enough to support a deep enough thread pattern. Yes you can get a 8mm bolt to thread into the arm, but it will very quickly strip out when subjected to the weight of the bike.
I know this because my F4i track bike was tapped with a 8 mm that stripped out.
