What type of stand?

I was just wondering what type of stands does everyone use for there blades? I don't know what kind I have now because they came with the bike but I think the rear one is bent because the bike will never sit up straight.

Re: What type of stand?

do a search for rear or front stand types and you'll get a few hits from thread discussions we've already had on this subject. I use a Pit-Bull though.

Pit bull stands for work or if you just need a stand (no kick stand) Baxley Sport Chocks. Solid products made in Alabama (Pit Bull is a cool family run operation with REAL nice folks working there)

Is it possible you have a stand for a 929? They usually have a spacer or other means of adapting to the asymmetric swingarm....

I think it's a unverisal one actually. I'm saying that because you can move the "brackets" side to side to fit other swing arms I geuss. Also I went to my shed earlier to look at it and it's a Scorpion by the way. I'm assuming they're junk?

Re: What type of stand?

Pit Bulls are the best I've used and seen. Having said that I own a few Handy stands. The fronts aren't great but the rears work fine. About half the price of a Pit Bull and if your local dealer sells them like me, you can get a front and rear stand for $100.

Are you using spools on the swingarm, or just a straight swingarm stand?

Re: What type of stand?

I have a set of Vortex stands for the track bike which work great.
I also have a set of Lockhart Phillips three piece stands, which work well enough, but they still suck, IMO.

Get some spools end a rear stand that's also spooled. It's worth it!

Re: What type of stand?

+1 on Handy Industries stands. I got both front and rear delivered to my house for $120. I heard someone once say they suck, but i tell you what i've used mine about 15 times and no problems at all.

No its just that if you try to use a basic universal stand it will lean to the right because the way the swingarm is made. I have a Lockhart Phillips set and the rear does the same thing but the front works great (as long as you have stainless lines, which I dont yet, so I gotta unscrew the front line screw). I need to get some spools and a new rear stand cause the leaning thing bugs the hell out of me.
