Alright folks, I know many of you have purchased items from various vendors/sites so...
1) Who's got the cheapest pitbull stands? Looking to get front and rear
2) What are the pro's/con's of the frame lift style as opposed to spool lift?
3) What is the cheapest price (including shipping if applicable) you guys have paid on the Euro spec front signals?
List website

Thanks,

AFMEDIC

ps any of you guys near Fayetteville N.C.? Maybe do some riding this week

1. Dunno. Bought mine locally and have not seen that big of a variation in online pricing. A good place to start would be with one of our site sponsors. PM them and they will probably get back to you quickly.

2. You need spools with the spool version and I personally think there is less chance of picking the bike up crossed (one side of the stand further forward then the other) which could in theory cause the bike to fall. For about $10 more you can get the pitbull stand that works with both. That is what I have.

3. I got my Lockhart Phillips front Euro signals off e-bay for $49.

They also have them in amber if you prefer

Thanks King-Tony. I think I'm gonna opt for the SS reversible rear that way I can use it on my ZX-7R as well. And the new style front (frame lift) any experience with it good/bad?

No personal experience with that stand. I have the fork version and I must admit, it makes me nervous to use it. If I had it to do over I would not go with this style. You are buying what I would, if I were doing this again.

I have the new style front stand and I love it. Just make sure you dont try to lift the front without having the back up allready.
