I have a V7 III Racer that I wanted to keep vertical when not ridden and for service. There are no receivers for conventional stand bobbins on this bike. I have 3 other Pit Bull stands for other bikes, so I was familiar with the their good quality products. I just got this stand, and I can say it is the best thought-out and best engineered one yet. The V7 III, with relocated evap canister, only has a single horizontal tube on the frame to support the bike with, but this stand does this very well and keeps the rear wheel low to the ground and very stable. Height is adjustable, but mine is on the lowest setting. This is a great way to support and service your bike without lugging around a permanent centerstand. The V2 version is very easy to deploy, too. Thanks for a great product!
I own this constraint system for my Hayabusa dragbike and have been using it for 8 years now. I have seen many different motorcycle constraint methods over the years and must say that pit bull's constraint is the most efficient and simple motorcycle constraint product that I have ever seen since buying it. So far, my constraint shows no wear nor tear and I use it at least two times most months, with each use averaging two to four days use each time. It is extremely stable holding my bike and is very easy to load, taking about one minute to do so. I have never used any additional strapping, etc, to keep my bike steady. Lastly, my trailer floor is still in good shape where the mounting plates mount--no issue here. GREAT PRODUCT!
I have made the trip across Canada and the USA once a year for 4 years now and take my Ducati with us. We have tried various trailers and strap methods to keep the bike safe while traveling, but always had to stop and readjust straps and keep things tight. The past year we purchased an enclosed trailer and a pit bull trailer restraint system, we traveled across Canada and the USA and back for a total of 11,000 miles and that bike was rock solid! I used straps on the front as an extra precaution and after we stopped a few times and I realized the straps had come loose and weren’t doing anything, I took them off and put all my faith in the pit bull system, it did not let me down! Simply awesome! Will only use it for our bikes now. It is a must have!!
So I was hesitant at first to use this product because I'm old school strap kind of guy. I pulled the trigger on it and I wish I'd done it sooner, it so much easier to load and secure the bike. On first use I have way expected to open my trailer door and see my baby on the floor, I was pleasantly disappointed ( it was upright). Would highly recommend this product as the preferred method of secure a bike for transport.
One of the most innovative products I have had the pleasure of using on my bike(s). Added this to my older fork stand and it became a stable triple tree lift! It's also nice having the option of using my traditional fork stand as "one or the other". Absolutely love it! Definite must-have for anyone that owns an older stand :)
Excellent lift for my ‘13 Konkoor 14. Been using PB products since 2007 with nothing but praise for them. Make sure bike is on center stand, then use rear lift, then front lift, if needed. I will definitely be getting more PB lifts for any new bikes in the future. Keep up the great work guys.
Bought this Pit Bull rear stand and the 6mm spools for my 2016 Yamaha Vmax. Came wrapped up really good and quick delivery. Installed spools with a dab of Loctite then adjusted arms on the stand to correct width. Very easy to lift bike and it is rock solid. Very pleased with this unit and highly recommend it.
This system must be the best kept secret in motorcycle transportation. I just picked up a pair of these babies. I have a fairly narrow trailer designed for a trike and limited places to effectively tie everything down. I looked at all the options, watched all the videos I could find and after being fairly certain these would work I placed my order.
I just loaded up my BMW S1000XR and Aprilia Tuono and drove 1200 miles to FL. These things worked like a charm! I was able to mount the plates fairly close together and used nothing but these restraints during the entire trip. The front wheels on both bikes ended up moving to one side but not a thing to worry about. Loading and unloading is a breeze. You hear that crap all the time but in this case it really is. The toughest part is lining them up. Once you figure out that part the rest of the securing process is a minute at best. If you are even remotely considering buying these go ahead and do it. You won't regret it!
After breaking many hangers and finding my leathers in a hep in the back of my trailer I purchased the full hanger, mount, and bungee kit. Bolted the hanger to the steel tubing on the sidewall of my enclosed trailer. The side of the trailer will collapse before this system would ever fail. Great product and as always I have never been disappointed with a Pit Bull purchase. Stands, TRS, Retainers, and now hanger.
I bought the removable handle version. In the two years that I've had this, I have found it to be a robust and excellently made piece of hardware. It fits the bike (2015 Daytona) perfectly. I highly recommend this.
I don’t write reviews, but this stand is absolutely perfect. When it arrives you can tell the people at pitbull go the extra mile and genuinely care about their customers and products. It was delivered wrapped in yards of bubble wrap and I felt like a kid of Christmas. The welds and construction are top notch and you can tell you have a quality product that will last years. It’s worth every penny!!! The only thing I did was put some tape on the back of the stand so it wouldn’t get scratched by the ground.
Very well done system and it's been well engineered for the C14. The photos in the C14 section were provided by me to the site owner. There were almost no photos available online of what it all looked like so I provided them.
I used this system on the aluminum trailer in the photos for a 1200 mile trip and it handled the bike and weight just fine. The bike did move a bit more than I expected it to, but the engineers at pitbull said some slight variation in the C14 axle makes a bit of slack necessary.
Overall I'm glad I went strapless for this bike as it does let you do it without help. You can check youtube for a video of what you see here in photos.
I have had this restraint system for 2 bikes now. The XR (lowered or stock) works well. But note, you can not lower a factory lowered XR any further and use this trailer restraint. The exhaust will inhibit the pins from working on the U-bar. But this thing is a rock. And everyone who sees it likes it.
