These lifters make a big difference, too.

My GF cannot put the bike on her pitbull rear stand by using the swingarm spools. She can stand on the handle and nothing happens because she weighs too little. With these lifters/chain adjusters, it comes right up and is very stable.

+1 on the pitbulls. I love all of mine.

I guess I'm going against the grain here, but I bought a set of stands from gpiindustries.com and couldn't be happier. I put my wifes ninja 250 on the stands and did basically everything but dance on top of the bike to try and get it to shake loose.

The bike felt so sturdy on those stands that I asked a neighbor to borrow his pitbull stands so I could do the same thing with the pitbulls. His exact words words after seeing the GPI's amd hearing the price were...", I coulda saved a hundred bucks."

Now I can only speak for the my stands and their performance, but I bought the stands because at 600rr.net, everyone was raving over the quality and price, and I'm glad I did.

The pins have a tendency to break, too.

YOu should be able to get a set of adjusters and lifters well under $200.

That's what I'm running and love 'em, too.

The new (revised) style are better looking, work better, and don't fail

All I know is when I come off teh track...hot...sweaty...wore out and about to puke in my helmet, the LAST thing I want to do is be hasseling with a cheap stand to get my bike on.

I use Pit Bull and have no issues. But some of my buddies have some cheap that I see them hasseling with all the time.

It's weird, Lockhart-Phillips is one of the biggest moto parts distributors in the country, if not the world, and they sell like these stands.
They have to know they are junk, but they sucker people in with a cheap price.

It aint right, but at least we can spread the word amongst ourselves.

if you dont want to spend the money on pitbulls (i didnt want to), look into DMP......they make good stands as well. i have the s-spec stands, and love them. never had an issue lifting the bike, and everything is stable when up. good quality as well

You said it yourself..... You want to "invest" in some stands. You "buy" cheap stands. You "invest" in good ones. I have Pitbull for the front and rear and won't use anything else. Just like with tools.... You buy good quality the first time, and you won't have to constantly replce them. The rear is set up for spools, and the front is the one with the pin that goes in the steering stem. I don't trust having it under the axle in the front. Besides, this way I can pull both rins at the same time.

There are other brands that work just as good as pitbulls. If you're careless, your bike can fall over on a pitbull like any other stand.

Although it's true that there are other good brands out there, Pitbull is probably the best. It's also true that you can knock a bike off Pitbulls also, but they're the sturdiest that I've seen so far.
