Cool idea!

I know 2x4's accomplish the same thing, but this gets you exactly level.

That thing is sweet!!!! Looks like I can use it with my powerstands too. The 2x4 gets me close, but a 2.75x4 or a 3x4 would be perfect, lol.

Pitbull tire wedge

Saw that a few weeks ago. A handful of guys on the ZX-10R forum bought some as soon as they heard about it. Pitbull is supposed to be coming out with a new product every month for the next few months so it should be interesting to see what else they come up with.

Great idea... but they should've made it so it not only wedges the tire but support and steady it as well. Could be as simple as adding a "V" bracket to cup the tire so it doesn't roll off the wedge.

I like that they have a bike wearing a shagged- tire in their promo shots.

Lmao, for more than twice the price! Looks like it's twice as bulky and probably heavier too. Since it's better, please explain what you didn't like about using the PB wedge that makes trakjak a superior product.

Maybe twice the price for you. The pitbull has to be clipped onto the stand, and must be unclipped and removed before you can remove the stand. You also have to turn a dial several turns before it meets the tire, then several turns out to bottom it out for removal. Trakjak has a much wider surface area, is much quicker to set the height as you just push a lever down until it touches and self locks, and bottoms out instantly with the push of a button on the end of the lever. If you just use it at home, no big deal. If time is a concern (endurance racing), then there's no comparison.
