Hi all,

In the Supersport forum I posted a while back about a website I created to chronicle the progress of a badly abused Supersport I purchased. I thought I'd share something here for the rest of you 2V Duc owners.

So I have the bike completely torn down and am in the process of repairing and upgrading stuff in order to put it all back together. My most recent entry on the site is a review the lift/stand I used with plenty of pictures and details on how it works. I can't say enough good things about this product. Please check out the site to read my review. I don't work for these guys and have no personal interest in their success - I just want to pass along a product that I really like.

Re: 2V stand review (boplicity)

It looks like it would work well. Stable, compact, lightweight, good height.
I spoke with the manufacture and directed him to the thread. Maybe he can give more details and options that are available.

Re: 2V stand review (hoythuntin)

I was quoted $649 without the lift and $749 with the lift.


I was also told they are working on bringing the cost down.

You can get that same lift for $49.99 at Kragen. $650 seems a little steap for a simple setup like that. Looks very handy though.

Re: 2V stand review (hoythuntin)

At $649, I could buy a Mig welder, pay someone to show me how to use it, purchase enough raw materials to make about 20 stands and still make a profit on my first sale...

Ouch, that's too much for sure.

Like corsastrada noted earlier, Kragen has a lift just like that for 50 bucks. How much for just the engine support? If that's the 650 $ part, you've got to be kiddin me.

Re: 2V stand review (boplicity)

If you're looking for an alternative, I've used a Cycle Cat DSS-1 stand (http://www.cyclecat.com/SS1-1.htm) for a couple of years now and really like it. Different in concept from the Cycle Mojo stand, it is a much more substantial, slightly less convenient way to securely lift both ends of your Ducati. You need both a front and a rear paddock stand to use the Cycle Cat. I use it each time I disassemle a bike, or if I want to take the forks and triples off, etc. Makes a great engine stand when working on the top-end of the motor as well. I think they're around $250 or so, but Cycle Cat only seems to produce them in limited numbers and the website says they are currently not in production.

Re: 2V stand review (Wounded Duc)

Yeah the DSS 1 is an awesome stand. I picked one up off of ebay for around $250. Makes assemby/disassemby soooo much easier.

Re: 2V stand review (jager)

Here here on the DSS-1. I got one last fall. Had to modify it to work w/ the 2v exhaust header but it makes working on the bike way easier if you need to work on the front or rear suspension.

Re: 2V stand review (jpuck91)

Just getting around to reading all the comments posted here. Some great things about the stand:

it's very portable and takes up little to no space - this is cool if garage space is at a premium. also if you want to bring the lift and stand to your buddy's garage to work on his duc you can do so pretty easily.

it requires no assistance to set up the bike - you don't need to buy paddock stands and you don't need a buddy to be around to help you mount the bike.

you don't need to remove ANYTHING - you don't need a single tool to mount the bike onto this setup.

To be sure, the Cycle Cat stand is pretty sweet. It does however require paddock stands, tools and minor disassembly of the bike and is has a pretty good sized footprint when not in use. If none of these factors bother you that's cool.

Yes, you can get a Kragen lift for less money. I don't like the quality of tools sold at Pep Boys or Autozone though. I usually buy my tools at Sears. The ATV lift Sears sells goes for $100 so please don't feel like Cycle Mojo is trying to rip you off here.

So that leaves the stand (minus the lift) priced at $650. As noted earlier they are working on lowering the price. I would encourage all of you to email Cycle Mojo and give them your two cents about this. The only way they will be inclined to lower prices is if they know people would buy it otherwise.

Thanks again to everyone for looking at the review and offering their thoughts!

I use something that I made. Technically, I didnt make it, because I'm not the person who developed + design it. But I successfully "copied" said design. Works just as well, and its a quarter of the size. :)
