Anyone buy the front and back stands for 99bux? Just need the stands for wheel removal and chain maintenance.

Get a good spooled stand.

I was talking to Michael Moore on the phone the other day while Matt was working on on our project 999S. I looked over and watched the non-spooled rear stand slip off the rear swingarm and start to fall on another bike. I ran over and helped him prop it up until we could get another stand under it.

I'ts not worth it to go cheap. A good stand will out last any bike you own and will probably be very usefull for your next bike as well.

Pitbull makes a convertible stand tht can be used on spooled and non spooled bikes:

We use this on the front of the MV Agusta because that bike has drop outs for the axle---that stand is always being used.

Here ya go.

I have used Handy Stands and they do the job but the Pitbull doesn't shift around as much. If you ask the question "What would I put my $10,000 motorcycle up on and trust?" the answer is easy. If you need something to get by, the Handy Stands are ok but if you are looking for a stand to last, the Pitbull is an option.

Yep. Glad I bought my Pitbull stands. Rock solid and high quality build. Got them from CaCycleworks (thanks Chris).

I bought the Handy stands. I have never said "I wish I bought the Pit Bull stands". They work fine. I even tried to shake the bike a little while it was on the stands and it was solid.

I think if you are going to do work on your bike, I would definately go with the theory "You get what you pay for", but as for myself, I just need a set of stands for winter storage, so I think the Handy stand would be good enough. Anyone agree, disagree??

I have an fg rear stand and intend to buy a front. I think it cost a little over $100. Good quality. I would say it is better than a Handy, but cheaper than a pitbull.

heh - the first time taking a sui-side stand ducati off a rear stand by yourself is a heart stopper.

one foot holding the kickstand down, one hand on the grip, one hand rreeeeeecccchhhhinngggg out for the handle for the rear stand to flip it up...

scary, but doable. even worse on a sloped garage floor in the dark!

cheers!

To take mine off on my own, I have been holding the passenger handles with both hands and then just flipping the handle up (carefully) with my foot - I just need to watch out that the stand doesn't smack my knee/shin when it goes past vertical. Anyone got a better technique?
