Good deal?

cool story bro

edit: note, never put a bike on a front stand before the rear stand!
Was just wondering about that cause I'm planning on ordering this since I have the same rear stand and would like the front to go with. Read up on that though. Curious how this front stand works though does it do the spool method like the pit bull stands? Cause the rear trackside stand just slides under and goes up.

No, front stands are typically not spooled or bike specific (some racebike stands would be, probably.)

Front stands basically have a little 'L' shaped pad/lifter that cradles the underside of the fork boots on either side. You fit them on either side, then push the front end up. Allows you to do a lot of wheel maintenance, but to do anything to the forks you'd need a triple tree stand. (it holds up the bike from the lower triple.) I'd say this is a good deal at 44 as long as it's not janky.

Gotcha, would it be worth it? I mean in terms of use. How often do you need to lift the front end. Like I wouldn't mind raising both wheels for storage over the winter but I don't know if I can manage to do that with my garage set up right now anyways. I guess how often would I need to raise the front end for maintenance and such.

I would say yes. There's lot of stuff you can do, or do more easily when you have the bike on a front and rear stand. Basically pays for itself the first time you're able to pull your wheels yourself and save on a tire change by bringing only the wheels in.

Not a bad point. Either way I've been wanting one and for 44 bucks why not. Will have it's uses eventually I'm sure.

The good thing about a lot of motorcycle tools and such, is that they keep their value; you can sell them for close to what you paid for them, because stuff like that doesn't really get 'used up'.

tire warmers, tires/pads change, oil change

I have the trackside rear and it is one of the best things Ive bought for the bike. Just saw that they are on sale again and I'm going back to get the front. Well worth the 45$$$$

My buddy just bought the front and rear stands today from Cycle Gear. They work on his single sided Ducati 1198 as long as you have the spoils on the rim & the single swing arm.
