I have a question.

I bought one of these and it works great. The directions say not to ride over the turntable.

So what are the rubber pads for? Can I ride over it with the pads in place?

My guess is that the pads raise the bike so that it's easier to deploy the center stand onto the turntable.

That's correct, if you drive over the disc when it's on the floor you run the risk of the rear tire kicking out and may cause an upset of the bike!

I have rolled the motorcycle over the disc after spinning the motorcycle around but make sure you have control of the bike. The mats can be marked out on the floor ahead of time and will make the use of the disc quicker. I have set up and spun the bike around in under 30 seconds.

The rubber mats are to be used under both tires to keep the same lifting effort as the bike on level ground. Remember the bike is now sitting up an extra 1/2" higher and lifting effort will increase without the mats on some applications.

I hope this answers your questions!

Keep in mind the bike is also 1/2" higher, so when you put your foot down, the floor will be a little further away. If you are tall, that's no problem. If you can't flat foot the bike, that may be a surprise.

Laugh Turncycle Center Stand Disc

well with everything it will take some practice, but what I've been told by my customers that it is the most simplest way to spin their bikes around, and wondered why someone hasn't thought of it before. Safer than using the side stand to pivot the bike around.

The levelling mats just make it easier, that's why they are included with the kit! That extra 1/2" can make it a lot harder to use, especially on a Triumph Tiger!

Hope this helps!

Motorcycle repair shop's could benefit from using the Turncycle Centre Stand Disc in crowded showrooms to move bikes around. Also in the service area where space is always at a premium!

Small highly portable, and way cheaper than damage that could occur while moving motorcycles around in the shop!

Not just for your garage, can be used in your driveway too! In case you have not enough room to spin the bike around.
