Swingarm Spools / Sliders

I was just wondering which ones you have and which are the best ones to buy. Does anyone have suggestions on which to buy and ones to stay away from 'cause they are junk?

I have the TRex stands and their spool/ sliders...Work great, at least for the stand....Don't want to really "test" the slider part...

If I new what I was doing, I wouldn't still be working

Garage
I wil let you know next week

I had the T-Rex delivered to a friend in WA who will be visiting just after new year. This saved both delivery costs and GST / PST / Handling - about CAD50 to $80 depending on customs clearance charges.

I bought the front & rear stands and spools for about USD150 delivered.

Its a PITA to wait that long for my Xmas present to the bike.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

I got the harborfreight alu stand last summer. They had the black steelstand on sale for $ 29.95 so i got that with the front wheel adapters (9.95). This way I can lift the whole bike of the ground. The steel ones have double wheels on each side and the whole stand seem to be very sturdy.
