WTB - Rear Stand For 919

I'm looking for a good rear stand for my 919. Cleaned and lubed the chain last night and it was a pain without a stand.

Our very own phobman fabricates and sells the best center stand for the 919.
Click my 919 page then scroll down to the bottom for details.

The big plus of a center stand vs. a rear stand. It is easy to raise and support the front end if the wheel needs to be removed.

I have this one, but it's black with clear wheels & I paid a few more dollars for it

I highly recommend one - makes any kind of maintenance on the back end sooooo much easier.

To Mr Mike:

I too want to lube the chain myself and moving the bike back a few inches at a time to do this is a pita to say the least, I even put marks on the chain (with a sharpie marker) to make sure I get it all!

I am a service newbie so excuse my ignorance. How does this phobman stand work? I ass-u-me it sets under the bike at about a 45 degree angle, then the pin goes through to secure it to the center-stand holes. How does one "lift" the bike without the stand sliding on the floor? (mind you I have never used a center stand and the 919 is my first bike)

I also have been considering a "pit bull" because a local bike shop claims to discount them with "racer" pricing and those stands seem to have a good rep. The standard net price seems to be around $130 ish.

Thanks

I have the PitBull forward handle rear stand, they aren't cheap but they appear to be indestructable, I bet it would hold my F250.

Wow, it's staggering how much cleaner Mikes garage is than mine.

Unlike the OEM Honda stand, the phobstand is not a permanent. You place it under the bike, insert the pin, step down on the stand with your foot then lift the bike. It's really very simple and no it will not slip.

If I was starting from square one the phobman would be my #1 choice.

Your other option is the Pit-Bull. I have been using the front and rear since the late 90's.

Just my but T-Rex makes stands that have a pretty good rep around the forums and you can get front and back for less than the price of a single pitbull.

I don't have a stand but the phobman model seems like a good thing

Not quite as heavy and no where near as expensive as the Pittbulls but the Handy Stands (think that's what they are) do a decent job. I picked up a set for around 70.00 off of ebay.
