The majority of the time it'll be by myself, so there's no harm in spending a bit more to make it an easier job! Thanks for the advice folks. Going to get the stand and some cleaning stuff ordered and hopefully clean up the chain and bike next week after my final deadline on Tuesday. Also, anyone have a pro-tip for removing the baked on black spots from the exhaust muffler without scratching it to pieces? Haven't figured out a way yet.
