there ones from cycle gear i use them... they work great, i think i remember the cycle gear person saying they come with some kind of warrenty so if anything happens later down the road to swing them back by

REAR STAND

http://www.cyclegear.com/CycleGear/A.../p/36177_00000

FRONT STAND

http://www.cyclegear.com/CycleGear/A.../p/36176_00000

Then the MOTO D ones also 100 for the set front/rear, heard good things about these ones too and the company seems to stand behind their products pretty well as well

The 2x4 will suffice until I get a Pitbull stand.

I highly recommend that if you are going to get a front stand, get a folding pin stand that lifts from the triple tree. This gives you much more options when removing the front wheel and adjusting/removing the front fork tubes.

also spools are awesome! my 929 doesnt have em but it def makes it easier to put up on my r6 especially for like lets say a track bike for warmers.. other than that i wouldnt really stress to have them.

I've done it with jackstands before. A rear stand is so much easier though. My trackside stands were $45 each at cycle gear.

i removed my wheels for powdercoating, i put diesel on a tupper ware, then submerged the chain on the diesel, now chain is cleaner then ever before

Let me know if you need any help. I admire that you had a problem and figured it out. You are welcome in my garage anytime. I have stands you can use.

I use a rear stand when working on it at Petes but dont have one at the house. The jack stands were actually easier than the rear stand because I didnt have to do the try and hold bike up and get the stand positioned. The buell doesnt have spools and the swing arm stand always wants to missalign as well as try to catch the belt guard. With the jack stands I just set the right hand side while it's on the kick stand, straighten the bike up and slide the left hand side right under with my foot.

Anyone who NEEDS a rear and doesn't have the cash to buy one and is willing to pick mine up can have them. I have 2. The first 2 people to pick them up can have them. One stand per pick up. One person doesnt get both

Good man.

I'm suprised you didnt include "hottest GF that shows the most skin gets them."

If anyone is in the Spring area, and needs to do any minor work, I have front and rear stands, a decent amount of tools, and a garage. If I am home, come on out. I'll do what I can to help.
