Front and Rear Race Stand(s) Need Advice

Hi,

1. What race stand do you guys recommend for the front and rear? I have a rear pit bull for my FZR600. I think there is an adapter that would work on the RC51?

2. Have you ever lost it on the way on or off the race stand?

1) Pitbull, Vortex works too

2) No

I have this one for the front:

And this one for the rear:

The forward facing rear stand is nice, but I think I'd rather have the standard one as the rear facing isn't optimal for some maintenance. I have a set of cheapo LP stands that work well too. The pitbull stuff is a little overkill, but I know it will last forever. I had a friend accidentally run his over with his truck and it wasn't bent at all.

pitbull and vortex are both great.

i bought a set off ebay for about 100 dollars and they are good quality. Wheels are hard plastic, but its definitely a heavy duty stand. I honestly don't think you could really go wrong with stands.

Never have had a bike fall off.

Just took home a set of front and rear stands, but they're still in the boxes. We use them in the shop al the time and they're great.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Superbike rear spool stand, and Superbike front stand. Bike had the spools on it when I bought it so I got the spool stand for the rear. Cost me $40 apiece.
