Sale on Handy Stands

Just wanted to let you guys know Handy Industries is having a sale on their bike stands. $89 for both front and rear. http://www.handyindustries.com/shop/...ct=167&D=5&S=0
This seems like a pretty good deal. I just ordered a set. I believe you need the ones with the rubber support pads.

Keep in mind, that front stand is only good for removing the front wheel. You would still need a headstock stand to service the forks .

Still for that price, it nice for washing the bike and tire maintenance...
I have a set and love them. And I bought a headstock stand from them too. Great price and gets the job done.

I've got three sets, plus the headstock stand. I like em, and they're a good value (cheap).

I have been dissapointed in them myself. The knobs for adjusting the rear stand would not go in without a vice grip because the paint had run down into the threads. Then both plastic knobs shattered leaving normal bolts (which is actually more useful since I can use a wrench now). Both of my stands are bent, the rear one isn't too bad, it still works alright, it just looks funny. The posts on the front one are offset, so positioning it into the fork holes is practically impossible. So that stand is a last resort option only. Has anybody else had a problem fitting the front stand? I also wish the rear stand lifted the swingarm up higher, it seems other stands like Pitbull lift the swingarm higher which would be nice for taking rear wheel, cleaning, etc.

Luckily I have a Phobman Special Industries stand coming on Monday .

Motorwerks,

Do you mean the front stand is bent so that it doesn't have the correct spread? In other words not wide enough, or too wide to line up with the holes in the bottom of the fork? If so, just bend the stand together or apart to get the correct distance. That's one thing I liked about them because I originally only had one set and could use them on multiple bikes.

Don't get me wrong, centerstands are nice also. I made a removable one for my Hurricane.

I like my bikes setting with both wheels off the ground, and you also have to do some weight jacking to get the front wheel off the ground for maintenance with a centerstand. One person 30 seconds with Handy's stuff (or any other for that matter) and the bike is up.

The width is fine, it is that the posts are offset, one is more in front of the other. I might try to bend it anyway, because right now the stand is virtually useless.

Tho a bargain setup, the Handys are sturdy pieces. I've got a pair. If one is bent and doesn't quite line up - bend it into position. Problem solved!

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

Some of us find them ugly. Also, can't be fitted with a 900RR exhaust.

Sniper , you seem to be just a very negitive person, you always have something to say about , anything somebodys trying to do or wants to do to thier bike,Not sure why you post here if all you want to do is make negitive comments towards others. Im sure there a forums out there for individuals like you that will fit more into your personality, str8

If you'll go back and read what I posted, the only person I said anything negative about is myself.

I am always careful not to personally attack anyone. Maybe you're right. Maybe I need to give it a rest.
