SOB, you beat me to it! When I had my first bike I would prop a piece of 2x4 under the swingarm so I could spin the wheel when I clean my chain
I've moved on since then. I LOVE my Vortex stand! P.S. I wouldn't put ANY stand on just by the swingarm if you can help it. Spooled stands are the way to go IMO.

I have T-rex stands, while they are not pit bulls, they are considered a good stand IMO. But I still had a problem with the front stand. The fork rest adapter bent, nearly causing the bike to fall over onto another, luckily i caught it before disaster, but i'll be going with pit bulls sometime soon enough.

As far as front stands go. I'd go with a triple stand over a fork stand. That's just me though. If you need any additional stands (say you have multiple bikes) then go with the fork stands from there.

You spend $10,000 on a bike, $500 on a helmet and $300 on a jacket/gloves.
You put on resets, shorty levers, a $500 exhaust and all sorts of carbon fiber bling...

Then you want to go by a $40 stand to hold up your pride and joy?

I think going to Motorcycles Unlimited and spending the change to get a PitBull is money well spent.
It'll last forever, never drop your bike and makes you look cool.

Why wouldn't you tilt the bike on the kickstand (ala bike pivot/spin) and get someone to spin the tire and spray?

To hold the rear stable I used a 3 foot 5/8" dia Steel rod from Home Depot
$ 7.50 and two jack stands form Walmart $ 15 for the pair.

Lift bike with rear stand
Slide rod through hollow axle (Typical on sport bikes, Busa easly accomodates 5/8" rod, I would think a 1/2" would be fine too if 5/8" is to large, but I would not go smaller than 1/2")

Put jack stands at each end of rod, well reasonable close to bike.

Remove stand and convert to front config and use on front.
Found this to be very stable.

<>
I went with a Vortex rear stand through Chaparral, with a the convert for use on the front.

Rear stand $ 108
Kit to convert to front stand $ 42
Shipping $ 20.

The front converter kit uses the two prong method not the single pin.
