I'm looking for a decent quality, less expensive front stand.
I found an FG MOTO Front Stand on Ferracci's site for $70. It didn't seem like a bad deal.

Does anyone on the board own this stand? Any comments? I know that pit bull puts out a good product, but not really looking on spending a ton of money. Any other suggestions in the $70 price range?

Thanks!

I have one. It flexes A LOT. I had to put a small piece of tubing over each pin that goes in fork leg. Otherwise the axle will scrape the pins when removing, and makes it impossible to get it back in. Had my 748 fall off when I had to remove my rear axle. Once the weight shifted the stand flexed and let go. Fine for small stuff, but hang a tiedown and hook to handlebars as a precaution. The pitbull is worth the extra coin.

I am in the middle of some pretty intensive mods and I have a pitbull new front, the thing is awesome! Here is a pic, the wood and jack under the bike are there just in case. The front end is completely held up by the pit bull and the back end is suspended from a frame I built out of pipe. I used this method to pull the swingarm and forks. No problemo, spend the money on a pit bull.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
I definitely don't want to risk dumping the bike just to save a couple bucks.
I think I'll start saving up the extra cash for the Pit Bull.

Thanks!
