Here is the stand. $25

Discount ramps (.com) has a similar stand for a couple dollars more, if your local HFT is out of them.

2010 696 ProTune Powermap programmer, EvoTech tail, Quat D Alum slip ons, Artrax wavy rotors, K&N, 14T, bar risers, G2 Throttle Tamer. Still working on swapping all of the black plastic over to carbon fiber. Oh, and no more ugly charcoal canister!

your tire won't develop a flat spot unless sitting for a very long time. if you're looking for seasonal storage i'd recommend pitbull stands, not the cheap ones. i have cheaper stands and they end up bending over time, so i only use them for cleaning and short term support, like a week or less. pitbull stands are strong and top notch.

I only have the rear stand, works fine. Been meaning to order the front stand too. These are not bombproof like the Pitbull stands, but for the price, you wouldn't expect them to be.

I ordered them both last night and they'll be here on the 19th. Let you know my thoughts once I have them.

I purchased the Harbour freight rear stand, and it works great. I just need the Front fork tree lift now. Anyone have one that works well. Again, it would be for a 2009 Monster 696. Thanks!

I think that most people are afraid of it just because it's sold by Harbor Freight.

But isn't it pretty rock solid? I've been very happy with mine.

Yea the harbourfreight one has been totally fine. I'll probably be able to sell it for just as much as I paid for it once my Venom stands arrive.

Venom stands I ordered showed up a couple days ago. I put them together, took all of 10 minutes, and they seem rock solid. Haven't tested them with the bike yet, but here's what they look like so far:

I just got this. Not the greatest, I used it to service the forks. It is cheaply made and cheap price. I have the harbor freight stand for the rear.

But... you got the rear stand with the spool adapters. Are these to be used on your Monster?
