motorcycle stand?

cheap place to buy one? how much should i expect to spend? in the past we've just used an engine picker and a chain to hold up either side of the bike while the wheel is off. not ideal... i found a set front and back for $200 obo on craigslist and they are adjustable which i'm assuming just means any bike will work on them? i'm dumb on the subject so any suggestions/information is appreciated!

Very simular to mine, but I have the black widow ones, they were about half the price but I have not had any problems with them. Those are nice stands Rob.

I originally bought a pair of these off brand cheapies: Motorcycle Stand Rear Triple Tree Front Swing Arm Center Head Lift 1 Pair Red | eBay

The only difference was the rear stand was the swingarm style and not for spools since my old bike didn't have them. I like the front stand a lot, the rear stand works but kinda blows... because it's 3 pieces and bolts together it's got some play in it so it'll rack a little side to side which is unnerving. The front doesn't have this problem I think because it's not open on either end.

Anyway, I recently got this rear stand: MotoStance M-6 Rear Stand | MotoSport

I like it, solid as a rock and it'll do both spools and swingarm. The opening is just barely big enough to fit my '04 with spools, I actually have to pull a little on one side to spread it so it'll contact the spools where it should. Sorry I'm rambling... I suggest a one piece stand of some sort for the rear and I prefer the front stands that support by the headstock so you can turn the wheel or work on forks etc.

Not the best shot but here's a pic of mine on the stands.

I picked up one of these rear stands and it's been just fine. I'll get a front one sooner or later.
