What is the difference in universal and spooled, since I'm in the same market to buy one now.
Universal has pad-like things that fit under the swingarm.
Spools are like the things thread is wound on when you buy it for a sewing-machine. 'Cept these are aluminum, and bolted to your swingarm, for a stand with little fork-like extensions to pick the bike up with.
I would agree with PitBull and they are hardly overpriced. Just look around the net and you can find deals on them. I know www.tricktape.com has deals every now and again. You can get them in spooled or universal as well as the front stands.
