I recently purchased an 8T pin for my front stand to be used on a 2006 Yamaha R1. As is, the stand WILL NOT WORK, without FIRST disassembly of the front hydraulic line attachment adjacent to the horn. The support bar unfortunately take the same space as the left front brake line when the line is installed. Does anyone else have any ideas for a work-around on this issue?
From Pit Bull: The #8T pin will work on this bike, but it takes a bit of maneuvering to get the pin into place. If aftermarket brake lines are installed, use the #8 pin on this generation R1 which is much easier to use when the new brake lines are in place.
Tried to cheap and paid the price. Pitbull is now the ONLY stand I will ever use. The stand and the spools fit perfectly. Starting from the shipping box you can tell a lot of pride and passion goes into pitbull products. This stand came imaculately packed. Not only box tape perfectly applied but clear packing tape even over each strand of box tape. It was not a jumbled mess. Someone took the time to carefully bubble wrap the stand, place into the box with an organised inventory and stickers. Each weld is spot on perfection. Being able to compare pitbull care and craftsmanship to my other junk product seriously opened my eyes. I can easily infer two things about my new favorite company, they are passionate about their products and their products are worth every red cent they cost. If you truly care about your motorcycle, ONLY use pitbull. Going to buy the front stand next for sure.
Highly recommend. I bought one of these to trailer my V Strom to Mississippi to ride the Trace with a friend. I am not a fan of straps and figured there had to be a better way. This is it. No worries about the bike falling over due to a broken or loose strap. No messed up grips. It’s easy to install on the bike and secure the bike on the trailer. Yes it’s a bit pricey but the piece of mind is well worth it.
Where was this product twenty years ago.
Use mine for the first time last sunday .
This makes it an one person operation.
No foot under tire to lift the rear tire in alinement.
Tire wedge should be sold as a kit with any rear stand sale.
I purchased and installed the Cruiser Transport Kit in my Cargo Trailer to haul my 2018 HD Softail Street Bob FXBB. This kit is outstanding! it is sturdy, well built, Made in the USA and holds my bike steady. The installation instructions for the removable tie downs were easy to understand. Torque the bolts to 11 ft. lbs (132 inch lbs.) as stated in the instructions and it is rock solid. The removable wheel chock didn't have a torque recommendation so I torqued them to the same as the tie downs, 11 ft. lbs (132 inch lbs.).
Purchase directly from Pit Bull and transaction was flawless. Once I received the items I notice that the pins weren't working properly ( to long on clutch side.) I called them and explained the situation, they had me take pictures and measurements. THEY sent me custom pins for my bike and had me send to others back to them. That's going above and beyond customer service, they have a lifetime customer in me. PS I have a trailer restraint system for my 2017 KTM Super Duke R as well.
Great stands and of the highest quality. I wouldn't buy another stand. Only complaint is that the headlift stand presses on the underside of the front fairing on my 2007 Daytona 675 when the bike is lifted.
Firstly, great website with all the info you need to select the proper stand and spools for your motorcycle.
Ordered the spooled-forward-handle-rear stand for my 2017 Kawasaki Vulcan S Cafe (503 lbs). Shipping was fast (well, I am close in SC). Un-boxing the stand, my son, a former master welder, said, "Wow, perfect welds" and we both appreciated the heavy-duty construction. After a simple assembly and install of the spools we hoisted the bike. I'm a small, older (73) man so I always have my son give me a hand. I was very pleased with the stability. Then I put a couple of the included Pit Bull stickers on the swing-arm and my helmet, then I cleaned and adjusted the chain, topped-off the coolant...
Absolutely love this stand! Amazing quality metal and welds.Definitely a built to last product and you cant go wrong wiyh the ss model because you can adjust your spools to your bikes then mark it with a sharpie then boom you can flip it around and help out a buddy.It came very well packaged and best part of all is its made in america!Highly recommend and love how they offer the refurbishing kit for later in its life.
Headed to a mini track soon with my Z125. I ordered these pins, was immediately informed during the checkout process that they're custom produced, not on hand. I was sent a courtesy email updating me beyond the standard order processing & shipping emails. The customer service was perfect as always. Received them, as promised yesterday, checked for fitment as soon as I got home. Perfect. Best tool in my garage!
