I have the motomfg stand. It was OK when I first got it. As and when I started making changes in the geometry of the bike(simple changes - flipping the eccentric pin etc), it went out of alignment and now the front wheel is dipped into the ground..although the rear wheel is off the ground.

So its sensitive to adjustment. However if you can deal with that its really good for space saving in the garage.

Stand

I have seen the MotoMFG stand break a weld. I have the BURSIG stand and for the few extra dollars, would highly recommend this stand. The workmanship and quality is top notch. I have the optional wheels option and like the stand with the feet and not the wheels for stability. Great for the track and easy on-off of tire warmers.

Does the Bursig have a locking mechanisim to hold the bike to the stand like how the MFG has the pin to prevent the bike from slipping off?

Anyone got pics of the bushings that are installed on the bike to adapt to the stands?

Went with the Redline Swivel Stands...decided the complexity and cost of the MotoMfg stand was not worth it.

Thanks again!

did you have any problems with the front wheel? As in the stand hitting the brake lines? There was a discussion about certain front stands not working with our bikes.

Wow, they have factory blemished stands for $109/pair. If they work well, that's a pretty decent deal.
