I am in a small financial crunch for the next month due to over spending on my car restoration and need to buy a set of stands for my 848.

I don't ride much when it's cold and I don't want the tires to flatspot over winter.

What are the absolute least expensive set of stands for an 848?

Thanks!

Don't waste your money on the cheap shit. Save up. Roll the bike around until you have the cash.

The factory stand is hands down the winner in my book.

you bought a nice bike. Cheaper stands are less stable and you don't want your bike falling over.

A lot of people swear by pitbull. What I use and recommend.

Guys, who makes those freakin trick alloy box section stands that all the WSBK teams use?
I've seen them before but now I can't find them.
I saw them at oncycles.com I think. IIRC, the rearstand alone is like 400 bucks. Worth it? Nah, I hang out in my garage to admire my bike, not what's holding it off the floor...

Edit: Found 'em. They've got box-section single-sided rear stands for a cool 700....I'd rather buy tires and a clutch.

lol, it still gets down to freezing and below for a couple months of winter. I don't really ride when it's below 50 :D
LOL don't move to Colorado! You'd only get to ride about 3 days per year.

I bought a T-Rex stand for my 998. It's not quite as solid as a Pitbull stand, a little wobbly when the bike is on it.

Stands

Do not skimp, by Pitbulls and be done with it, so you may save $50.00 buying cheap stuff, and then get to deal with a cheap product for years to come, no savings there! I hate cheap (quality) stuff......

Alex, I've got a stand I used last weekend for display at the Cycle Gear Open House here in town. You're welcome to it for $120 if that'll help you out. Shipping would be around $14-20 depending on if you're East Coast or West Coast. This is one of the reversible stands that can go in on either side of the bike. I used it on our 1098 but I can swap out the pins for you. Just PM me if that sounds good.

I used a Pit Bull rear stand for my GSXR as well. Great quality!

Thanks for the picture. Since the Ducs have single-sided swingarms, what type of adapter needs to be purchased to use with the Ducati bikes?
