Re: Pit bull jack stands

300$ + shipping? I'll stick with my block of wood until you tell me these are killar.

..not very productive if I want to work on my frame sliders and rear axle at the same time...

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: Pit bull jack stands

I've used them. I borrowed a pair at the track. You still need another stand to get the bike up on them. You can adjust them to put under your frame sliders or your solid mount foot pegs. Then you have totally unobstructed access to the front end or to the swingarm. There are other ways to get these things done with those stands, but they were handy.

Re: Pit bull jack stands

Yep, I just use real jackstands, for $10 or whatever from Wal Mart, under the engine cases. You have to take the lower off to do it that way though.

Re: Pit bull jack stands

Yep in order to use these you put your bike up on stands then move the jacks in. I like the idea of these stands. They make taking the front end apart easy, with no other stands can you take the tripples off to change the head bearings, but with these you can, and the way i look at it is, you only need 1 set of stands.

If your chaing the head bearings use your rear stand and 1 set of those stands. And if your installing your shock, put it on the jacks, and your front stand.

Neet, personally if you work on your bike a lot they are nice, or maybe split the cash between a friend and share to save on the cash.

I put the jack stand under a rear set and lean the bike on it.

I purchased a pair of Plastic sawhorses and two 4' sections of 2" pipe and haven't found the need for something like this since then.
