Spool adapter ears can be welded on.
PitBull has them HERE.

Thanks guys. I'm guessing most of you go with the standard stands then. I want to get the pitbull kind that goes in from under the engine so you can hold the bars as you pop it up.

I don't think I'll bother with the spools. I'll just have to be careful.

Can't you just drill a hole and add a threaded insert? I got a set of inserts from LP and did that a couple years ago on an F4i.

is that kosher?

i know of a couple 9r owners that have welded them on but i'm not gonna try to weld aluminum

i will say this, the 9r slides on the pitbull rear stand, not really an issue for most...sucks at rainy track days...but then again, who would be foolish enough to drag a puny, underpowered, poorly suspended street bike to a racetrack anyway?

I think so. (no meat or milk products involved!)

It was an extremely common mod on the F4i. Tested by thousands of track addicts with no problems.

Here's a tutorial (for the F4i) showing how it's done: http://cbrworld.net/forums/thread/140623.aspx

I just got some aluminum round stock,cut them about 1" long.Drilled & tapped them ,then had a buddy weld them on. Works great,no more trying to slide of the rear stand. I love them.

Oh yeah.. it's an easy fabrication for sure.. but considering PitBull has them ready to roll for $17.. well.. hardly worth the time to make my own on that one. I guess it all depends on what resources you have access to?

I got the alum. stock for about $6. Then borrowed a bit and tap.It's just that easy.But $17 isn't bad either.

Call Lockhart Phillips (http://www.lockhartphillipsusa.com/). The part numbers are all in the tutorial, but just tell them what you want and they'll figure it out.
