  • Front and rear stands

    ok, i'm in the market to get a front and rear stand so i can take the wheels off my bike to have tires installed. this way i don't get charged for the shop labor of them taking my wheels off. anyone have any reccomendations? preferably something not to expensive. any packages that have both?

      They aren't as stable as PitBull, but for 99 bucks how can you beat it

          For the front and rear? I don't think so. I purchased the handy stands for the exact same reason. I needed to get the rims off to change the tires. Trust me, they do there job.

            I built my own rear and I use a Suzuki front. But, I was going to say, why get someone else to change your tires. Do it yourself. Get a static balancer for around $150 and some tire irons for $20. I use three irons. I built a bead breaker but you can use the old 2X4 trick and break the bead too. I won't let most of the shops touch my rims for fear of breaking or tearing the bead on a new tire. Those machines will stretch a tire and tear the bead if there is a careless operator (which they all are). I was in the local Honda shop and came across a sign above the tire machine. It said (The shop is not responsible for broken or bent aluminum wheels). What kinda crap is that I would have there heads on a stick for bending my wheel. Not to mention breaking. Do it yourself, spend the coin on some tire changing gear.

              Spend the x-tra $$$$ and get the pit-bull.. What's more important saving money on a stand or drop-n your bike on it's side... I've seen it and done it....
