Motorcycle Stand or Jack

Any recommendations/preferences between a jack or a stand? I need it mainly to replace the chain and sprockets and other general maintenance. From what I have seen, a jack is the same price as a front and rear swingarm stand. Thanks for the input.

I have jackstands for the front and rear. They work pretty nicely. The MX center stand may not work because, as you said, the pipes are on the bottom. I've heard nothing but good about the phobman stand. If you could get a phobman for the same price as the jack stands it may be better.

I use 3 of these Harbor Freight cable hoists by lag screwing 10" long pieces of 1" flatbar to the rafters of the man cave. I made loops out of 8' sections of heavy tie-down strap which I can easily slip around the handlebars or frame at the motor mounts and grab rail on the tail and can quickly suspend the entire bike. For added stability I set the bike down on automotive jackstands. I'm cheap so this is how I made use of stuff I already had to lift the bike.

Bull dog? Something like that?

Thinking out the wallet = Yeah, get something specific. I wasted how much in the cheap seats?
Thinking down the road = Yeah, I paid extra, but look at the adjustments. I can use this on any bike I own in the future; I used that 'specific stand' (alleged) money, bought a more universal stand with the extra outlay of money, I can say was, 'well spent.'

yet more bullshit eh? if you want to take the swing arm off, you cant do that with a generic stand. that's where the phobman stand shines. but you wouldn't know that because you dont actually own/work on one?

Agreed.

I'd like to get a phobman as well. If I were to ever sell the bike I'm sure I'd be able to get most of my money back from selling it on here.
