Question about bike stand

Hey i got a 00 929 and i have a few questions about handy industries bike stands. Do these stands account for the offset in the swingarm? I know i have to get the rubber pads but am concerned about the bike leaning. I know people will tell me to get pitbull stands but i cant beat the price on these stands. thx in adavance.

Re: Question about bike stand

The handy stands are basic stand, and does not compensate for the offset swingarm. I too was drawn in by the cheap price. It will do the job, but I have also used many four letter words because of the stands. The back stand is okay, but the front one is almost worthless. My brother is happy with lockhart/philips stands, and you can't go wrong with pitbull. In my opinian, it's worth the extra money. (besides look at it like this... how much does it cost when you dump your bike because of your cheap stands...)

Re: Question about bike stand

The lockhart stands don't look bad, but i looked around for them and only found ones that didnt fit the 929. I love this bike but this swingarm creates a lot of problems. If anyone can send me a link to one that will fit that would be great.

Re: Question about bike stand

Hey,
I bought them, Ill agree the front stand sucks to use, its the wrong angle to pick up the hole. The rear stand is fine. Good price for what it is.

Re: Question about bike stand

I just ordered the T-rex stands off ebay. $105 shipped and they are fully adjustable to compensate for the 929's swing arm. I should get them wednesday.

Re: Question about bike stand

I've got a Lockhart stand and just cut a piece of 3/4" (I think that was the thickness) plywood to bolt to the right side of the stand. It's perfectly level. It's been on the stand for over 5 years without incident.

Re: Question about bike stand

I got a stand from redlinestands.com. Under $100 bucks and built extremely well. I drilled holes for spools, just need to account for the difference of each side of the swingarm. Best stand I've seen for the price. Very happy with it.

Re: Question about bike stand

Take a look at the frame stand from Heindl Enginneering. Works with any sportbike that has a hollow swing arm/frame bolt. The beauty is that you can work on the front or the rear, and the swing arm difference on the 929
is an non-issue. It is adjustable for side to side off-set.

Re: Question about bike stand

Depends on what you want to do.

If remove the rear wheel, yep, paddock stand needed.

If just to lift it to spin it for chain lube, attach a pair of pick-up knobs, knock up a prop for the right side (I just used a bit of pine but would prob. go for hardwood next time) so that the weight is pushed onto the sidestand and held between it and the prop.

Cheap and cheerful ;-}
