I have a 1999 750SS. Can I just buy any non-spool rear stand? I noticed some are like $60 on eBay and pitbulls are like $150.

Re: Question about rear stands (duckphreak)

I've been using a Micron rear stand for about 4 years. The thing is very sturdy, enough to hold the bike up with me on it, and easy to use. I think I paid around $60 or $70 for it.

I'd hate to be the guy who learns the hard way!

If you see the Ducati rear stand, it will say FG on it and it is absolutely beautiful, it has rubber padding on the part that touches the swing arm. Pit Bull stands are excellent stands but I find them a bit pricey. Just my 2 cents

Re: (Yellowducky)

Handy Industries is good for the price. Front & Rear stands for $99. I have sat on mine with the bike on the stand and had NO problems at all. They have worked like a charm for 3+ years now on my 2001 900SS without one incident. Quality is good.

Anderson stands are excellent. I have the Spacesaver Universal which allows me to move the bike around freely with the rear up. Great for working on the bike and parking in "impossible" spaces.
I have a Pit Bull also... they're very good but definitely overkill for most users.

Re: (mikeinwi.)

I have 2 PitBulls and a FG, both are very nice. Woodcraft makes a realy nice stand as well (just not for single sided swingarms). If I had a SS I'd get the Woodcraft.

I've owned or used darn near every stand out there, and my favorite is the Pitbull "convertable" rear stand. It allows you to use either spools or lift under the swingarm with the same stand. They also use readily sourced auto heater hose for the under swingarm pads so you can easily replace them.

I've not found another stand made to the standards and quality of Pitbulls, which are made right here in the US of A. Considering the value of the object you're lifting with the stand, it doesn't seem to be a good place to try to save $40 or $50.

Here's a tip on saving some $$ on Pitbull stands -- surf over to the WERA BBS and watch for someone (or post a "wanted" ad) who will sell you a new Pitbull stand at a discount using their Pitbull contingency bucks.

Re: Question about rear stands (Wounded Duc)

My Duc is out in my garage up on front and rear Pitbull stands as well.
Solid stands and worth the money.
