AJW85 uses one. They seem fine. Not as strong as TRex or Pitbull. I had one but it just wasn't wide enough for my bike. Between Trex and Pitbull is a flip of a coin.

Yes I use one and it works fine for what I need it to do.
I don't beat it up, use it at track days or anything heavy use, but for a basic stand it works well.

Why not spend a few extra bucks and get a stand that you will never have to replace?

When I first started I bought Lockhart Phillips stands...they were junk after a year, fought them all the time, etc.

I've also had customers use cheaper stands and have their bike fall off of it....kind of negates the savings there and costs a lot more in repair.

I've got Pit Bulls in stock, free freight, no sales tax....the SS stand is $141.95 to your door.

Spend a $100, plus sales tax and gas money plus time.....$25 more bucks and you've got a great stand for life.

Makes sense to me....of course I'm selling it

I've got LP stands and haven't had any issues with them. Now, they aren't the same quality as Pit Bull, but they aren't at the same price point either.

Not from me about their stands, but I've seen too many of their sockets shatter on people while using them. Luckily, no one I know has lost an eye from them.

if you are looking for a stand to have and once in a great while put the bike on it, youd probably be fine with eh HF stand

anythign more than that and id invest in a quality stand, its really really not fun when the light weight cheapo stand bends while youre lifting the bike and comes off of 1 spool on the swing arm, its hard to catch the bike, and without help you can be trapped there holding it up hoping someone comes along(ask me how i know....) Ive got a PB stand and my 600 lives on it so its always in use never once had a problem with using it, and its a lot easier to lift than the cheap stand i have as well

PitBull, I have 12 of them. They are WORTH the difference. AND if you ever have surface problems, you can send them back to the factory for refurb as well, they come back like new. GREAT company.

To me....even if I wasn't selling them I would spend the extra money for a quality product.

How much did you spend on your bike? Is $25 really going to brake the bank....drink 5 less Starbucks this month and it's paid for.

I actually walked thru a Harbor Freight store yesterday. They definitely have their place. There a some things that if you aren't using them vary often may be worth the investment....a lot of stuff I wouldn't.

Plus, you know everything in HF store is being made in China. Pit Bull....100% made in the U.S. baby and they really support the sport.

Labor is in the US, I assume the steel is from China along with the welding and bending machines they used to make em.

Thats quite an assumption. Are you a buyer for pitbull? Hook me up with a discount.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

very well said. lol.... and thank you all for the great replies and info. the reason i need a CHEAP stand is so i can store the bike inside. when i move it to the garage in april and do my own work(oil changes, maitenance) i will definitly buy the pitbull. thanks for the pm busa.

I woulnd't assume that. The machines they used were probably built out of the USA and the materials originate out of the USA. Only the labor to assemble them are local.

The US sucks. You should leave it.
