Inexpensive Chinese ones from Ebay, but I would NOT recommend "sliders". MOTORCYCLIST had one of their 'garage' videos saying that sliders increase the chance that something will 'catch', causing your bike to flip.Ive been looking for spool sliders as I think it looks a lot easier to lift the front and rear off those instead of parts of the bike....
Me TOO! Under the forks to lift, or the 'triple-tree' piece for changing tires....Swing arm bobbins with a paddock stand are what is usually used for the back and I'm sold on my T Rex front stand for the front.
And I used some 8mm bolts I had on my '15 until I received the spools from China.i have a first gen so i just threw some 10mm bolts i had from an old honda in the spool holes and it works great with my cheap HF rear stand
same here . ive got the same one fast ed has in the pics above.. did very minor modding to it and ive never had an issue with it . even with sitting on the bike wail on it+1 re harbor freight rear stand. mine's aluminum, yes it bends, but it's never broke in 10 years use.

Look closely at these pics, and you can see them.
I've replaced the HF stand w/ a rear TREX one, which does NOT bend (or move!)same here . ive got the same one fast ed has in the pics above.. did very minor modding to it and ive never had an issue with it . even with sitting on the bike wail on it
It's a TREX stand w/ the triple-tree (EXTRA) piece. W/out that, you lift from the BOTTOM of your forks, so the wheel's OFF the ground.Eddie, where is that triple tree stand from?
On the 2015 1K, not sure how one could prop up the front to take weight off the front wheel.
na ill pass i still like my HF one, hasnt let me down and ive lifted close to if not over 100 bikes and never had an issue (other then a rebel 250 due to were the mufflers are). even lifting bikes that have no spools just lifting them from the swing armBTW - IF any of you think that the TREX stands are expensive - I have COMPLETE sets in both AZ and BC!
