    I have a cheap haulmaster low profile rear stand from harbor freight i dont have any issue with scrathing from the stand. When ur talking about u have a swing arm do you mean that ur stand lifts the bike by plates holding the swingarm? Or does the stand scratch the swingarm when it lifts up from spools?

    Ok so I would suggest you get a rear stand that utilizes spools that attaches to your swingarm. Like I said I have a haul master stand from harbor freight about $40. If want something with quality and don’t mind spending the extra cash I would recommend you look at pit bull stands.

    I bought a Trackside rear stand at Cycle Gear for $45 and it has rubber posts that dont scratch and they also have an end for spools. This stand works perfect for me, I dont have spools so mine is lifted up by the swingarm also with no scratches. Hope that helps.

    I have PSR stands for front and rear.

    The front stand has two rubber rollers and simply goes beneath the end of the forks.

    The rear stand attaches in either of two ways:
    #1) square rubber blocks beneath the swingarm
    #2) hooks for spools

    I may add a chain adjuster with stand hooks.

    You can see partially the PSR stand in these pics, but I’m not yet sure how the stand uses the chain adjuster hooks.

    I use the Harbor Freight special also with no issues. They are hard to find here so I ordered it online. Great stand for the money.

    Are these here the stands you guys are talking about? They are a great price, might be an x-mas present to myself. I’m curious though, on the front stands what are the triangle shaped pieces of metal for? In one picture they show them facing down, then on the bike they sort of run up along the front forks. What do these do?

    I have GPI stands the rear can use the swing arm or spools and the front just goes on the forks. I picked the set up on eBay for like $120 shipped a year ago and they work great I’d recommend them

    @stansama in pic #9 of your link, the 2 posts that stick out from the triangle – they cradle the trailing edge of your fork. The triangle is 1. a mounting point for the two posts and 2. to keep the forks from sliding off the posts.
    Check out sportbiketrackgear.com and go to the stands section and watch the videos for a demo, sometimes I think Jason enjoys the sound of his own voice but, the dude knows his stuff and is very knowledgeable.
