Motorcycle stands needed

Hi guys/gals,

I'm working on putting a bike together. I'm in need of a rear and front stand for a Ducati Single Side Swingarm and a Triple Tree front stand. I don't have enough fund at the moment to spend on stands therefore I ask if anyone could help. I don't have much but I can afford a couple of lunches and beer if you like for your generosity.

Thanks in advance,

Sean.

sure, i dont know if the pin will fit your triple tree though. I know it fit inside a 2011 1000rr and it would not fit in my 2005 r6 and i dont think it worked with my 2001 929rr. want to verify it'll work first?

From this chart: http://www.pit-bull.com/fitting_chart_pins.pdf

It said that your 2011 1000rr use Standard Pin + #1 Adapter(?)

My triple is from a 749 regular model also use Standard Pin + #2 Adapter

I have no idea what's the adapter they are talking about, but if we can test fit it would be great. Let me know whenever you have a chance to.

thank you so much for your help,

Sean.

Sure, and just to let you know its the adapter pin on the stand that goes into the lower triple to hold the bike up. Without the correct pin its useless but if you want to try its cool. Btw how long did u need it for? Anf also when do you want to come

Yeah I did a little search and found that there is a PIN and there is an adapter (1 and 2). The PIN go into the steering stem and the adapter is like a sleeve that go over the PIN.

At the moment I don't need it yet bc i'm still waiting for new head stock bearings before I can install the triple. Plus I can't use your stand without the rear stand as well. I don't think I would need more than a week. I'm planning to the stands to lift up the bike in order to install wheels...after that I won't need the stands for other work.

Thanks for your help again, and I'll keep contact of when exactly i would need.

Sean.

PM me in case I forget to check back here. If you aren't too far away, I have a single sided swing arm pitbull stand I could let you use.
You'll have to verify the pin size, what I have is for a 1098 Streetfighter.

I'm in SW side of town. Near sugar land area.

It's a 748/916/996/998 swimarm. I have to search a bit more to see if that will work. But thanks for your help.

I have seen people use a jack on the engine case but I'm not too fond to do that yet. Will see if I can sort out something the traditional way.

Thanks all.

You don't want to use a jack on a Ducati crankcase. They are thin and it would be catastrophic if it broke.

Does he have solid mounted rearsets or folding foot pegs?

I've done it on both. If stock folding type then I put them more inward at the knuckle I guess you'd call it.

If I can borrow both stands from you that would be great. That way I don't trouble many members here.

Thanks for the idea with the jack.
