Attention CP

I want to buy this from you, for my D675, if you can get it ...



I'd rather give you my money than buy it online.



Also...

Does anyone else have one of these? How do you like it? I know I have to remove my horn to use this ... but I love pitbull's product, usually.

The stand rocks for sure, no worries there. I can get it for you, but the shipping both ways will kill me for a decent price. I will probably be about the same as online. Not the typical "OMG this is too good to be true I gotta whore out my GF to raise a few bucks" cheap, but it's the best I can do right now until we have another group sale, which based on the interest of the last few sales I have had, not until next year. I can still get it for you though. Lemme know if you need one Jake. Thanks.

bc the forklift is way easier to use when putting on warmers or changing wheels. you only need the triple stand once in a blue moon when you're changing front end ride height or getting your forks refreshed.

I'll check my voicemail and call you. Funny thing is, I will remember this, as I have in the past. When you need something else that isn't whored out online or I am in a position to give you a bigger discount than usual, I will gladly do it. Or if you need help with your bike or have a technical question, I will go above and beyond to help out. It should work both ways. Thanks Jake.

If the horn prevents the stand from sliding up the triple tree stem then you will have to move it or remove it.

Get the forklift with adapter if your going to do trackdays. I regret it myself. Getting on your hands and knees in hot ass leathers after your tired as fuck sucks. If you never plan on removing your front wheel or forks then just get the fork stand. Or be stupid like me and get the steering stem stand

Yes, you have to remove the horn on the D675.


No, I do not recommend the forklift converter. Why ?


I'll tell you.


The converter has pins on the bottom that are about as far apart as your fork-legs
as they have to sit on the pars on the front stand that are equally as wide as your
forks..... this means the downtubes for the top part of the stand sit directly in front
of the forks which makes getting to some fasteners a challenge.


The new-front stand..... is wider at the hinges..... so it is well clear of the forks,
brakes, wheel, rotors and all that. Now granted.... it is less flexible than the two
piece but has real advantages as well.

I agree with greeny - i have this stand and my friend has the fork lift - every time we put on our warmers I am secretly a bit jealous.

oddly enough I have like 4 or 5 rear stands.. but just this one front stand

never had a problem. and screw the pins, you don't need to use them.

here's how i look at it... would you rather make your life easier 15 times a weekend? or a few times a season?
