Is a swingarm pivot stand the go?

  1. I need/want a stand for general chain lubing and maintenance tasks.

    I'm looking at the Anderson swingarm pivot stand, but just want to make sure that its the best go before I go and get one.

    If people prefer the normal rear race stands, why so?

    Are these things ok for longer periods of layup (ie a week or 2)?

    Are they really ok? It's a little nerving seeing things jammed into holes not really design to take loads like that.

    I also like the pivot stand as it should be able to get the front well off the ground by pivoting the bike back....so saves getting a front lifter as well if I need to do front shock work.

    Enlighten me please :grin:
  2. www.kaneg.com.au

    That is the best place for rear stands. The owner Pete is an enthusiast and really helpful. It about 36 hours from the time I ordered my stands until they turned up on my front door step. Good prices, good quality and great service. Highly recommend them.
  3. +1 ^^ im looking at getting a second one from these guys.. highly recommended and ship as fast as a rat up a rafter.
