Default Rear Stands

Looking at getting a rear stand mostly for chain maintenance, not for long term storage (since I ride year-round) and came across this on ebay:

NEW BIKE REAR MOTORCYCLE SWING ARM STAND PADDOCK STAND | eBay

Any reason why this would NOT work on our CBR? Looks like it will hold it right on the swing arm and not need spools.

$37 seems to be a steal.

You have to check if it will clear the muffler with the adjustments. CBR users have good success with the Posse stand, which is what I ordered.

i've got one the same as that, if you put it kinda just in front of the axle nut it clears the muffler just. it is fine for lubing chain, etc

^+1. I have the adjustable one that doesn't require the bike have spools. It's awesome. Word is they hold just about any weight and last forever. Plus, you can go buy one from your local bike shop since they're commonly stocked..

The pit-bulls are indestructible. Best part, like in Rusty's case, if he got a bike that needed spools, he just buys a couple extra parts for the adjuster side of the stand, and voila, there ya go.

I got the Trackside stand from CycleGear, it was on sale for like $45. It works with either spools or without and is pretty sturdy. My only complaint is that its collapsible handle doesn't tend to lock in place when extended, but I reckon I could use a mill bit to help it find a "seat".

Pitbull may be the way to go, but at more than 4X the price? I'll hold off on that until I get my 600. Plus I just graduated college and the money isn't exactly flowing yet.

Thanks Bods for sharing. I have a GP Corsa which is much smaller than stock so I am hopimg it will still fit.

A nearly $300 combination. That's like comparing a Hyundai to a Porsche...
I'll save myself the $240 and buy a fuel mapper with it. Or just save it.
