I got a set of the Handy Industries stands... nothing horribly special, but they do the job well for most things- storage, removing wheels, etc. And they were only $99 + shipping for a set (front/rear).
I've also got one of the Cycle Cat DSS-1 stands, not being produced any more, but it rocks! Check it out on the Cyclecat site. Had to be modified to work w/ the SS (to clear the exhaust header), but that took all of 5 minutes with a cutting torch and grinder. As far as being able to work on the bike, I haven't seen much that would come close to it. You can remove pretty much everything down to the motor w/ this stand, since it bolts right to the engine cases. I'd give Cyclecat a call and see if they have any laying around, I know at one point they had some blems available for a slightly discounted cost.
 Might want to make sure the Cyclecat stand would work w/ 999 cases...
