wheel stands

what wheel stands are everyone using? When I had my "other mini" I had stand that worked perfectly.... but they since have been given away. I bought some off eBay and they really are junk (even tho my others ones came from eBay also).

just curious of what is actually being used

I use a pit bull triple tree lift. It has a pin that inserts into the hole in the center of the lower triple clamp. It's not the cheapest but it will be the last stand you ever need to buy.

And it works with the z? Did it come with the right size pin or did you have to add it? Can you post a pic with it on it?

This is not a good shot but you get an idea. I just use the pin that I use for my R1. You buy them new with the pin for your bike though then you can get add pins for other bikes as needed.

Do you know the pin number? I have a PB front stand that I use on my ZRX but the pin for that won't come close to working on the Z. Headlight hits the lifting bar.

When I have to work on forks, I typically use a folding ladder and a couple straps.

Yeah, im looking for a paddock stand. I had one that worked good.on my grom and I just can't seem to find the same stand. The front one did not have the 2 pins on each side, it had kind of a pad it sat on
