Re: Motorcycle Stands - what do you use?

Under the impression the pictured bike was yours and that the second color was a dark blue. I'm thinking bout getting a set. They look sturdy.

I actually find it a lot more convenient to use when at the track. I can hold the bike steady by the bars while throwing the stand under the wheel.

Also have a set of LP f&r stands that work as intended.

the picture motod put up was a picture of my bike. me and him exchanged several email back and forth and it was one i had sent him. the paint on the bike is white and grey and i have added a few white bits here and there.

plus one on being sturdy my wife has backed into my bike while it was on the stands getting a bath she stopped when she felt the initial bump it rocked the bike a little but it didn't go over . i really like mine, alot more than the psr's i had bought originally.

only had one complaint and i talked about it here

Re: Motorcycle Stands - what do you use?

Woodcraft for the GSXR and IMO, the Woodcraft front is the BEST in the business!

Sears for the supermoto.

CFM (the heavy duty version) for the RC51.

Team Calamari and Woodcraft for the NSR50.

So you should be getting some sort of funds for advertisement because your bike looks awesome sitting on them.

Repeat customers can get kickbacks/benefits for being loyal and that's what's going on in my mind...hmmm.

Anyway, my wife called me one time because she hit the side mirror of her car on the garage door and wanted to know how to get out of the situation. I told her to drive forward and turn the wheel to get more room. She thanked me for getting her out of that situation.

I can't imagine what would of happened if she hit my parked bike.

Back to the stands...I'm definitely leaning towards a purchase. We'll see.

Re: Motorcycle Stands - what do you use?

Recently purchased the DMP stands from Motomummy and I'm very happy with them so far.

I am yet to run across a set of stands that wasn't sturdy. They are all sturdy. I have put my bike up on the Pit Bulls and give BP "seminars" several times (hanging off each side of the bike).

I think the Pit Bull's are the "sturdiest", but you would be hard pressed to get a bike to fall off of any stand under normal circumstances.

I like the Pit Bulls because they are their own design, made in the USA and they heavily support racing/riders all over the US.

...not to mention their quality and customer service is second to none.

The Econo set I had were my first experience with bike stands. Now, I know better. I had to make sure the front stand was balanced correctly otherwise I would have done some damage to the forks.

Re: Motorcycle Stands - what do you use?

Chalk up another Pitbull owner here, and I have a Harris stand bought 3 years ago during a MC shop liquidation sale. Works great.

I still have a white non-spooled Lockhart stand I got way back in the early 90's.

Re: Motorcycle Stands - what do you use?

I have 2 sets of the MJ Moto gear stands, and I am still pleased with the price of $100 for a pair shipped with a front headlift and rear spool.
