PitBull Jack Stands??

Have any of you guys ever used these? Would you trust them to hold the bike while you pull the forks or the shock from the bike?

The wife and I have had a set all this season. They are Great!!! We even used them to hold up Captain-M's bike while we did some suspension set up. They are a little hard to use with stock fold up style rear sets. From my experience they are the best way to take the rear shock or swing are off.

i use the pitbull front stand (part#F0031-000) that picks it up by the triples and an electric hoist mounted on the ceiling of the shop. that way i can raise or lower the rear end to any height i need with a remote control. it was $199 @ grainger

I have to agree...

When I changed my forks I just used a the Pit-Bull stand that fits into the steering stem of the bike and that worked like a charm.

Never used the jacks, but have never heard anything negative about Pit-Bull, so I would trust it.

They are relatively cheap. And, recently I had an experience when I pulled the front wheel from the bike and had fork fluid running all over the floor. That was followed by needing to get to the rear shock to raise the bike and I had to hack around to get to it. There is nothing like having the right tools when you need them. And, it's $150.00... not even a really good bar tab.
