Sumo/Motard/Supermoto stand

What kind of bike stands are you using or do you recommend?
Homemade? How did you make it (milkcrate/5 gal bucket.......)?

You should be able to use any center stand.
Depending on the height of the stand you get and you bikes ground clearance will determine if the bike needs to be lifted onto the stand.
Some of them are height adjustable and just slide right under the bike and lift up with a foot pedal.
Those are the best IMO.

I use to use regular sportbike stands they felt really finicky with my dizzer. I then tried kick dirtbike stands but my bike was too heavy so I couldnt get it up off the ground. I went ahead a bought a motorcycle jack from harbor frieght using a coupon for around $75. Best stand ever

i bounce around from whatever is closest or not being used. my 5'6" 135 lb self can pick up the DRZ-SM and put it on any stand. you just have to know how to shift the bike right onto the hip. i have several standard mx stands. my rhino foot pedal lift stand is used most frequently. i also have a craftsman moto jack that i like because it can lift anything but takes up a lot of extra space. it also is nice to be able to move the bike around from place to place if you have the "wiggle" room. i'd sell that one to anyone for $60 to make more space in my garage.

- The bike I own
- All the bikes I used to own which I still list so everyone on the forums will know how cool I am

I use one of these

Cycle gear had a sale on them for 29.99 right around the time I was looking for one. I really like it since the height is adjustable, and it was cheap...

I fabricated a rolling stand that you can move around you instead of bending amd moving while working I can sit in my chair and move the bike wherever I need. Front wheel is cradled and I made anchors so it's sturdy won't fall off the stand.

A black one
and a red one

I just lay mine on its side when I need to change oil or tires. Kinda like riding the track. Why bother keeping it shiny.

Any cheap MX bike stand will work for a sumo. , I made one out of 2x4's a long time ago, too.

DRC HC2 stand is awesome. Pricey at $100 but it is sturdy and is height adjustable to fit under a motard. I've had one for four years and works like new still.
