From the pic, it looks rather flimsy. Good price though.

Yea. I have rear spools for my monster. I bought that version cause it's more stable than the paddles on the swingarm.

Several people pointed out that the front triple-tree style stands which let the forks hang loose are for SERVICING the front wheel and forks.

I was taught that if you're going to store a vehicle for a period of time (ie. for the winter), you should lift it to take the rubber off the ground but NOT remove the weight from the springs/shocks. They're made to hold the weight of the vehicle all of the time and allowing them to hang relaxed for long periods can damage the suspension components.

I just wanted to throw in that word of caution...

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

I've been using one of these (on my 620) for several years, and have no complaints with it:
