    so I'm looking at getting some stands for my bike. they're made by Woodcraft, I know that they make good clipons etc but are their stands any good? I'd be paying $45 each, used.


    Also, just to clarify: a front stand picks it up by the center of the bottom triple, right?

    There are a few different kinds of front stand, there's the one with a pin that goes into the steering stem (triple) and then there are those that have pins that go in the end of the fork and ones with two "fingers" (for lack of a better word) that cradle the bottom of the fork. Personally I find the steering stem stand the easiest to use, and a lot less scary putting the bike up (won't fall off, which is a risk putting the other 2 on).

    Woodcraft stands seem to be decent quality, the ones that I've seen.

    Thats a good deal...especially since it comes with the triple stand.

    The front stand is really where you should put your money


    Any run of the mill stand will work for the rear

    I agree the Pitbull stands are very high quality, however personally I found the rear much more difficult to use than my Hindle.

    my buddy had woodcraft stands. i dont know if there are different ones or not, but it was the biggest pos rear stand i had ever seens. you could shake the bike around on it and stuff.

    we were down at road atlanta one time. he was trying to set his adjustable rearsets and sat on the bike. when he got off, his r1 fell straight to the ground.

    i dont know, pitbull stands are rock solid. theres not flimsyness to it at all.

    i dont know about you, but my $9,000 motorcycle isnt worth cheaping out on stands that im going to worry about my bike falling off of..
