I just got a Kaneg rear stand. It set me back $96, and despite stating I didn't want the spool options, it still came with both (spool supports and the flat pads for bikes without). So if I get spools, or another bike with spools, I just swap it out and away it goes. I have to say, the service from Kaneg was amazing. I ordered around midday Monday (the guys are in Melbourne) and the stand was in my office (just north of Sydney) the next day. I haven't put it together yet (it's not a one-piece unit), but it looks sturdy. Not sure I'd want to put a $20K plus litre bike on it, but for a lightweight 250cc, it'll do fine.

Let us know if there are any rubbing issues with exhaust or anything.

Will do. Gotta get me some bigger allen keys first though - none of mine are big enough to handle the bolts to put it together!

Agree with that!
Got one and it works great!
Eventually when I have the $$$ I'll probably get spools and maybe the Pitbull.
But....until then....for $29.99....it does the job.

There doesn't appear to be any issues with the (stock) exhaust and the Kaneg rear stand. I will post piccies later.

$37 seems to be a steal.

bought this stand last week...works great on our CBR's..very solid stand...I am very pleased with it...will work just fine for long term storage as well...........thanks for sharing the link

I DONT BELIEVE ANYTHING I READ AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT I SEE

There's a bees [email protected]&k in it, but I had it forward of the rear wheel axel nuts. If you set it behind, or have spools, you'll have even more room. Click above link for a photo (I tried embedding, but it wouldn't load).

The stand is fairly sturdy, I think a single-piece like a PitBull would be more stable, but for something like the CBR the Kaneg is brilliant.

FWIW, and I know the Pit Bull stand is kind of pricey, but it makes no contact with the bike other than the swing arms where it's supposed to, the pads are round so it rolls the bike up and lets it down very easily, the pads can be swapped to accommodate spools whenever you need to, and it's likely the last stand you'll need to buy. Just wanted to lay down some features in the event any of you ever feel the desire to get one in the future. I can totally understand wanting a lower priced stand though, so carry on.

C'mon, sko sko sko!

Pit Bulls are the cat's meow when it comes to stands. I can think of none better.
But cheaper stands will work fine on our extremely light weight bike.
If I didn't already own my Pit Bull stands and didn't need them for any bike but the 250 I wouldn't hesitate to go cheap.

They do make changing tires nice & easy
