Bikestands, what do you use?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by gixxerk7, Sep 25, 2011.

  1. I'm currently in the market for some top quality bike stands, from what i've heard the best are the "pitbull" stands which are made in America unfortunately, and shipping to Australia is rediculously expensive.

    I've seen quite a fair few bikestands on ebay, but im not too familiar with the brands.

    This deal on ebay seems like a pretty good offer but i wonder how well they hold up.

    So what type/brand of bikestand do you guys use? :beer:

  2. this is the one i have
    only problem with it is the rubber on the spool hooks has come off
    *side note* the rubber knobs on the back have come off too, but that allows me to slide the bike forward/backward if needed

  3. I have an Anderson rear stand. Came with my VFR 400, so single side swing arm and seems to be of really good quality build. I have had it for 4 years now, not sure how long the previous owner had it for, but it hasn't shown any signs of rust which has been quiet a surprise. Can't tell you on price since I didn't buy it, but I would assume you get what you pay for.

    I also have a Kaneg front stand (Ebay link) in black. It doesn't have the same quality build as Anderson, but it does it's job. Have had it for 3 years and it has shown a bit of rust already. For the price it isn't too bad of a buy and it does the job just fine.

  6. After looking into stands, it seems that the Bursig stands are the best. Currently seeing how the old man will go fabricating one for me hahaha

  9. I've got an Rjays generic. The screw on one side doesn't work and it's a PITA to get it balanced. Would not recommend.

    Even worse was trying to get those dodgies at MCAS to recognise the POS. They accused me of shredding the thread on it, though it was like that from day one. Would not recommend them either.

  19. I've got an Anderson rear stand. Had it since I bought current bike in 06 and have not had an issue with it. Still looks and works like new despite (at least) weekly use. :)
