Which stands are good?

Hey guys what brand of front and rear stands are you using to service your bike?

I was looking at Handy industries, redline or Paddock Motorcycle Cycle Bike Swingarm Stands (Pair), that I found in ebay.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Very true, but they're holding up a bike worth many times more.... I don't know anything about the other stands you mentioned, but I consider these to be among the very best.

If you decide to go with another brand, I would suggest that you get the entire set from the same manufacturer......

I have the Pitbull stand with spools and universal jacks. I love the Pitbull stand and it was well worth the money.

I bought the front/rear combo pack from Handy Industries about a year ago for $99. COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. They are Extremely stable. I would get the spooled version, not the padded version though. Spools are just so much more stable.
