No problems with a rear pitbull here. Quick question though... don't the pitbulls have 2 positions for the wheels (think I saw that somewhere)? Maybe one is high and one is low?

My bike looks to be leaning a lil to one side on my rear stand as well. My stand isn't the problem as when used on other bikes it is straight. I think the problem for me is how Suzuki welded the rear spool support attachments is not eaqual or something. If I use the pads instead of the spools I can get it straight, but it is a pain to use the pads versus the spools.:hammer

When I use mine with the spools it leans a bit to one side, and yes I have both spool and pad attachments for my stands so I am using it correctly. When I use this stand on my neibors R1 with spools it is straight. Just off on my GSXR/

Are you sure its leaning? Or is it just off-center?
The swingarm is not centered with the rear tire, you know, because of the sprocket on the left side.

Uh.... Yeah pretty sure, doesnt really bother me though. The bike is plenty stable. Just looks a bit funny. Hell it was still standing after the earth quakes here a week ago, so not really a big deal.

Mine does that too, but I always figured it was the stand having a little different height on one side. Bike has always been stable though, and never had any scary moments.

Check to make sure the tabs where your spools mount isn't bending or moving. A couple people have had those snap off, and send their bike to the ground. As long as the mounts are in good shape, don't worry about it, she'll be fine.
