Post Phobman stand: Looking to buy one.

I'm looking to get a Phobman stand, but they're not being made as of now. However, speaking with Phobman; he will make them if he can get an order of 4.

I believe the price is in the ballpark of $75ea ($60 + $15 shipping). Anyone interested in getting an order together? I saw one go on E-bay recently and sold for $10 less than for new. The re-sale value is there and everyone who's gotten one seem to be very satisfied with it. Also much cheaper than the OEM or Motech center stands ($150).

Anyone?



This is the stand....................^^

+100 on getting a Phobman Stand.

I think I paid $83 shipped for mine about 2 years ago and I love it. Maintenance would be a nightmare without it. Heck, it even makes washing the bike easier since the rear is in the air and if you have a woman or friend around, they can lean on the back while you spin the front to clean it.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Are they on the bike 24/7? Or are they just for maintenance?

Just for maintenance.






Unless you never ride your bike and just leave it on the stand, in which case it's 24/7.

PM "The Shadow" on here, he has one, and I know that because of his 900RR exhaust he can't use it, he might be willing to sell it.

^^ True dat. 75 sounds like a good price to me. My exhaust keeps me from using it or either of the other two centerstand options, sadly...unless I dismount the whole exhaust first! I'd be happy to let it go to a good home...

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Alright, looks like we got 4. If anyone else is interested, I'm sure he won't mind making more for the order. Sent a PM to Phobman, just waiting for a reply on details and payment.

I got mine a few days ago. Took about 3 minutes to put on the first time, had a little trouble finding the wholes in a little dark at the angle of the bike on the side stand. Should take less time now that I figured it out. Works well.

I just like looking at the bike in a different position than normal. I just got finished working on my quad and had to sit there for a minute and just look at it I oiled my chain too, figured I needed an actual reason to have it . . .

Yes. the canister comes off relativly easily, when I did mine I removed everything all the way up to the vacume tubes fronm the throttle bodies and just capped it with a vacume cap.

Looks like there were more demand for these stands than you thought! I'm very pleased with mine. Another happy camper here. Although I'm still trying to find a good part to handle in the back while I lift the bike, since I've removed by grab rail...

I've been using my passenger peg to pull on when I go to put my bike on the stand. Works pretty good once you get the hang of it. Had my Phobstand for a couple years now and love it!

Do you grab both passenger foot pegs from the back and pull the bike back? Or left hand on the foot peg and right hand on the handlebar with a sideways motion?

I grab the right side passenger side foot peg with my left hand and my right hand on the handlebars and pull up on the peg and push down on the stand with my left foot. Takes a little more effort than doing it with the grab rail but works good.
