Sorry for the noobish questions guys, but....I wanted to get the Pitbull stands for the R1. But I'm not too sure which one the suits the bike. I wanted to both the Front and Rear ones. Will be doing oil changes, tire switching and lowering the bike....Which ones would you guys say would be suit for these purposes?

They have soo many on their website, I'm not sure which to get...rear stands, forward handle rears, one armed rear stands, standard rear stand, ss rear stand etc...Just to name a few. I'm looking for both the front and rear.

Thanks

for therear, a center handle adjustable will be great, the one that goes onto spools, not the type that lifts under the swingarm

for thefront, dont get a fork lift type, get a steering stem type, they are better and allow you better access to the front wheel and are less likley to fall off like the fork lift type, with the proper adadpter for your bike

Thanks for the respond. If I were to get these, the ones where I only need myself to work with them? I will be working on the bike myself and won't be having anyone help me get the bikes on the stands, I read somewhere there are stands where you need the help of an additional person...

:stpd: Couldn't have answered it better. Like he said, dont' waste your money on the fork-lift style stand. They're no where near as rigid and you can forget ever taking the forks off with that style stand as well...obviously.

Best stand(s) for your buck!

i use the strap on the rear seat and stable the bike with my left hand and use the right hand to position the stand. also heard of some people using a 1X4 or 1X6 under the kickstand that way it stands up a little more straight. its easy once you get used to it! i have the SS rear and stem front. work GREAT!! g-luck!
