Bang for the buck, the stands from Handy Industries, $99 ($118.41 including shipping) for rear AND front stand with choice of spool setup or rubber padded. I went with the spool setup since I feel it is much more secure than the rubber pads. Handy does not include the actual spools that bolt to your swingarm. I purchased LP spools for $12.95 from Cycle Gear. I add two lock washers behind the spool on the chain side and one on the opposite side for better spacing to insure the stand will not touch the swingarm. When purchasing spools, you need to get to ones with 10mm bolts.



To safely use the rear stand, be sure to have the front brake applied (I used a velcro strap around the bar/lever) or else the bike will try to roll back and turn. I also recommend using the brake to let bike down off of the rear stand. Never use the front stand alone!



My only complaint would be the front stand could be a little sturdier. I may weld a piece in between the axles for the little stand wheels. If you do this, be sure to get your width correct.

You might try racerdiscount.com, they have Hindle Stands. They are kinda cool because they are made out of their stainless steel header pipe.
