Bought Phobman stand - impressions

I didn't need a stand to go everywhere with me, and his stand, although it doesn't stay on the bike while riding around, connects to where s HONDA centerstand would connect and does just what I need it to do (in some cases better as I'll explain) and at a much cheaper price.

It connects well, is very sturdy, and lifts that back wheel off the ground just like it's supposed to. Makes it very easy to change oil and lube the chain, and just do any jobs in general while having confidence the bike will not lean over and will stay upright.

And a + for me, where I live I have to park my bike in the grass. The side stand has been HELL for this. Any little rain or just poor placement will have that bike sink in and threaten to fall. This centerstand is different than others in that it is very thick with a large surface area. So I won't have to worry about the bike sinking in. And it stays VERY stable in grass.

Well worth the $$$ I paid and use it everyday to park and am learning to do basic maintanance on my bike in confidence that at the very least, it won't fall over and will stay upright.

Great stand at a great price! It even outlasted my first 919! Ooops.


He's a great guy too. Wish he'd get his butt out to one of Rob's periodic rides one of these days. I'd love to see Phobman, Rob, and Hasbeen sit down together for lunch one day and just sit there and listen to all their stories.

I've had to put the price up to $70 to cover rising costs, and shipping runs $13-$15 for UPS

Love the Phobstand. Makes all those rear section maintenance tasks easy. And with a little posturing, the front section maintenance can be a snap!

Ups is about $150, and US POST about $50 which makes it an expensive stand!

I'd like to get one of these, are they available still? I was going to buy the OEM but sounds like these are better/easier to use.

how does the stand mount so that it is easily removable? I know the OEM you have to remove the Y-pipe to install(right?) So how does Phobman's work? If it is that easily removable ill probably get one in a month of so.

It mounts with a pin trough the holes the Factory center stand mounts to.

Slip the pin in,upright the bike, step on the extension, & your up. About ten seconds
Put the side stand down,push the bike forward,lean it on the side stand, pull the pin & your done. About four seconds. Maybe Five.

Definitely seems like its worth the investment. I already have a rear stand. but it can only do so much. I know everyone has said that there are no problems with the OEM center stand dragging. Does the Phobman have the same clearance?

Fair enough, there goes that idea. May look at getting the OEM centre stand.

It's a service stand only.
It does not permanently attach to the bike.
So actually, is has less clearance issues.

Is there a reason why the stand was designed to be used from the right side of the bike?

I don't know for sure, but with it designed that way you can easly put it on the ground from the right side with the side stand down, and your hand on the front brake when needed. If it starts to gey away from you the side stand is down to catch it. Great design!

I am quiet sure that the OEM center stands were discontinued. I had ordered one from a local shop and after 2 months all they could find out was the screen was discontinued and assumed that the stand was as well.


Thanks for the info Mikey
