I have spools on my swingarm-- that way there's absolutely no worrying about it tipping or sliding or anything. I can get on the bike and jump up and down and not have to worry about the stands moving at all... Pitbull FTW.


It sat like this for months last winter, and I wasn't concerned in the slightest bit.



Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
