Pitbull stands or Motomfg Paddlock Stand

Need to purchase stands for my 796 and was wondering what people think. Not sure if there are advantages/disadvantages of either. This is my first bike, so I might not be thinking of the same things people who have had them for years.

I am looking at the standard Pitbull rear and front stands and the Paddlock Stand by Motomfg w/o wheels. I know everyone loves the Pitbull stands, but was hoping to get some feedback on the Paddlock stand as well.

Price is not too big a concern as it is roughly close. I also don't plan on taking the bike on a trailer or anything. Mostly just for the garage.

The nice part about the pitbull is they are usable on more model bikes.
you may even keep the stands if you change bikes later

i have our Hyper on the motomfg stand, and it is really nice to just jack up the whole bike in one shot. less drama to put it on the stand by yourself too
you might add the wheels later too....it is awesome to just shove it around the garage while it is on the stand
downside- doesnt work on our older monsters

Thanks Jeff...I plan on keeping my 796 for a while so I don't think its as big a disadvantage for me, but I didn't think of that earlier. Appreciate your feedback.

Can't go wrong with Pit Bull stands. I've had a couple of them for a couple different bikes and never had any trouble with them.

I have used a Pitbull stand for 2 winters now and I find it easy to use.

Once I have the bike in it's place and slide the stand in, with the 2 rear wheels on the stand, the bike becomes really steady and easy to do by yourself.

Pit Bull reversable rear and Hybrid Head lift front. Be sure to get the correct pins as per PB's site. I have them and would not buy anything else.

Sometimes you get more than what you pay for like with the MOTO-D PRO-Series Ducati Monster and Panigale Stands.

They are lighter to use than Pit Stands (which are heavy to lug around) due to their modern design which makes them just as Strong and Secure when lifting your Streetfighter, Diavel, or Multistrada.

Handcrafted from Steel with a Lifetime Limited USA Warranty.

On SALE now at www.motodracing.com
