- I have a set of these and they aren't cheaply built. Paid $113 shipped. Set of spools will cost about $15.

- I also heard positive remarks about Redline Stands, but have never personally seen any. Some of their prices include the spools.

- Ebay, of course.

- I'm assuming you don't want to spend the money on the pitbulls.

I will be getting either Redline or Handy stands (I think that's what they're called) Definitely the ones used with spools though. Unless I hear something really bad about either of these stands, there is no way I will pay twice as much for Pitbull, although they are nice.

I have two pair and they are excellent! Redline stands are are also sponsors of the R1-forum so you know you will get good service.

I have the Redline stands and they are good, just want you to know that with the Redline stands they dont have a finish on them it comes as raw metal. I got them and then powdercoated them the color I wanted, I can put pics up if you would like for the ones I have on my R6.

how much did it cost to have them powdercoated? I painted mine but powdercoating is a better option...

I was gonna get both handy front and back but i ended up with a redline rear and couldnt be happier, the bike doesnt move while im on it on the stand... lol

I have redline stands as well...but one thing to keep in mind...yes you have to paint them...but you may have to prep them a little as well. use an sos pad to scrap off the rust that may have formed in transit... kind of a pain..but the stands are very sound.

I just spray painted mine after the prep work.....good stands overall....

^^^ Yup

And, when you place the order, they will email you back to confirm the pad or spool if you don't specify. I was impressed with their process, and it was quite fast.

Do they come with spools/bobbins or do you have to buy your own?

Spools = bobbins
Spools> pads

With spools the bike is stuck in the stand, with a pad its just on the top... spools are the only way to go

I pull my bike around and move it while on the stand and not scared at all anything is gonna happen
