Valentino Max Rear Stands

I know everybody swears by the Pit Bull stands and I have nothing against them BUT what's the deal on these Valentino Max rear stands like the one listed here:

Any thoughts/opinions?

personally as long as it is strong and welded correctly it doesnt realy matter. Always good to see these things in person to see how sturdy they are. For that price it should be good. dont like how the non spool doesnt have The u shaped bracket though. You could bump it and is might slide off.

not sure about that brand....but for the price...you can get a pitbull (something that has been proven to work and be sturdy)

i've used various brands of stands, and have seen people use other stands. i'd have to say pitbull stands are by far the easiest and stable stand that i've used. i've had my bike fall off a few stands before....not cool.

waiting...







im new to road racing.. so please bear with me. on my 07 r1, is it best (easier to put on and off rear stand) with the axle blocks or the lower swingarm blocks. Forgive me if im not wording properly. Im from motocross, shifterkart scene.
im tired of my stupid kickstand. I want to put it on the rear stand at home. Is it possible to do on my own?
thanks.

I would not buy any stand from this company again. I bought one for Andy and it was . Looks like something my 3 year old niece could've put together. I returned it and he got the boxley chock or whatever.

You to have put swingarm spools on and then yes it is very easy to put the bike on a rear stand. It might take a couple tries to get comfortable with how to do it but then, no sweat.

thanks.
so do you actually race or just ride fast on the street?

about the V/M stands, same price as pitbulls. get the pitbulls, why try and reinvent the wheel. prolly more, cuz you have to pay shipping and tax.
