mostly yes.... some you can wangle with spacers, sockets etc.

What bike is it for, i think i've got 8-10 abba kits. The fitting kits are about £20.

The fitting kits for the Abba stand also work with the Abba Skylift (unsurprisingly...)

The stand will come with a set of "universal" adapters which might well fit your Fireblade anyway, you can check on the Abbastand website

Get the front end lift at the same time and they might do a deal (direct from Abba). I've also the base plinth for uneven ground to enable me to use the Abba stand on my hydraulic bench. The stand feet are wider then the bench top and the plinth allows the feet to rest on something solid.
Yup £131 for front and rear lift.
