so to use the roadrace stands, I'd have to get the universal ears so it fits under the swingarm since there are no spools right?

Yes unless you have axle slider you might be able to make it work wit the spooled stand

The axel slider mounts on the axel so you won't be able to take the back wheel off when it's on the stand

Get a lift-style MX stand. The regular kind are a pain to lift the bike onto.

I use THIS one. It can be adjust for height, which is important because your SMR sits lower than a standard MX bike.

Still $58 aint bad at all. Does it lift your bike high enough for tire warmers?

I paid about 25 for mine, check on ebay

both tires are almost off the ground in collapsed position, so yeah, fully lifted position would work for warmers. it's not very stable though. I don't use warmers, so I hardly ever use the lift feature. when a I need to pull the wheels off or lube the chain I put piece of 1x8 under the stand instead of using the lift.

To use my spool-type Pit Bull stand for my bikes without spools I stick an appropriately sized bolt in each side of the axle.

I can pivot my bike on the kickstand and get the one I have under there if I have to.

It sure is a nice looking stand.

the pad doesnt look that big on that, is it fairly stable once raised? I looked at it at mcc last night, seems nice enough but the lift area is my only concern.

I use both the sportbike and MX stands. I use the axle sliders to pick it up with the swingarm stand then I slide my MX stand underneath. It's kind of a PITA but it works for me.

For just storing or general maintenance where I won't be pulling the back wheel off I always use the swingarm stand.

I thought the tire on the ape was fat enough that it would stand up by iteslf?

Its pretty stable, just make sure the height adjustment collar is tight, other wise it'll spin around. it works pretty good for most stuff, like using tire warmers, storage, taking wheels off, etc though its not quite as stable as a big non-lift type MX stand. While the latter is significantly more stable, its a PITA (but doable) to lift the bike on/off every session of a track day.

IN short, for frequent on/off, the DRC stand works great and is stable enought for most purposes. If you just want a storage and work stand for less frequent use, I like this stand with the tool tray underneath
