Best affordable front and rear stands for the 919?

Disclaimer: Sorry if this is already a common post, I tried searching for a few but only came up with "for sale" and old dead posts.

I am going to be getting new tires on my 9er after the season starts up again, and found a local guy to do it for a fair price, but I want to get a front and rear stand anyway: I figure if I take them off myself we can bump the price down and I'll save myself even more money in the long run. It's a 2002 919 with no spools or center stand, I'm sure that is similar to most of the 919's on here. What set up do you guys have? I don't really have a budget, as I'll be buying them in spring, but I also do't want to spend huge amounts. Adjustable would be nice, as I would like to keep them for as long as possible, maybe even for an additional bike after college? Who knows.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated! Again, sorry it this is a repost.

Pitbulls are great but I wouldn't call them "Affordable". Worth it though.

If I were buying stands today and didn't want to spring for pit bull (which I probably won't ever) I'd buy this:
Motorcycle Stand Set from MJ Moto Gear
Got to their home page for a 10% off coupon, and I believe that they ship for free (if not, it's cheap).

I bought a regular front stand and a rear stand from them and they have served me well. I actually sold the front stand because I stupidly didn't buy the head lift version and it's useless except for taking the tire off.

Phobe man stand for the rear. He has one for sale right now. Quick, grab it! Then any front stand of your preference. Be sure it's a triple tree stand as opposed to forks, more useful that way. Or go cheap and build an engine crate (check drop box for blue prints) and use a floor Jack.

I use the phobemand stand, floor Jack on the headers and a harbor freight floor lift with tie downs to make it rock solid.

Right now it's easy to get caught up on the $$$ side of it.
My lp stand tried to eject my bike 3 times. Repairs would
have cost more than a good stand.


My PB stand is 14 years old. I can sell it tomorrow for
$30.oo less than I paid for it.


The come along holding my front end up, I had laying
around. You can pick them up for 35-45 Dollars.

I'm envisioning you have a come along holding it up from rafters or the such?

I don't think that's an option for me for the most part... College housing at the moment and such...

I don't know much at all about your stands: how much are they, and how exactly does it work? Will it be compatible with a regular front stand?

So, about $100? I don't know if I can buy it immediately, but once I have a little more money in my checking I'd be comfortable doing that.

Phobeman (great stand) or a pitbull (or similar) on the rear, then all you need is a few sections of black iron pipe screwed together for the front.

Actually when I'm not using it to hold up a motorcycle, I hang bicycles off it

You can also use a sturdy ladder to lift the front, if you don't have a front stand:
