Pit Bull 10MM Spool Kit
Bought for a 2015 ninja 650. The 10mm were recommended. I spent 2 hours trying to slowly walk the bolt in thinking it will thread itself in as there is over spray with the powder coating. One side went in without stripping it but the other instantly stripped the threading.

If you own a Ninja 300 look away
I can only speak for the Ninja 300 10MM Spool, and can't say anything else about other bikes and this spool. One easy sentence: Don't waste your time or money on this. Arrived promptly, which was great. But when prepping my work area and i tried screwing in the allen bolt just a little and it felt odd. Called RevZilla and asked them about it and as quoted:"... It may be difficult to install but keep going...". Okay. Simple enough I dapped some loctite onto the bolt and start screwing straight in, not at an angle to miss-thread. Half-way through the bolt stops, and still hasn't touched the other end of the swing arm. Somethings wrong, it won't go forward it won't come out. Great so its stuck and after trying to fully install it I get frustrated and try to remove it. I was using the proper SAE metric allen head key and in the process of trying to remove it the head of the allen bolt on the swingarm spool stripped. After further research PitBull 10MM DON'T FIT A NINJA 300 which was claimed by sales reps and the pdf on this page. In the process of trying to remove this right now, but please don't waste your time or money. Buy a quality swingarm, Pit bull makes great stands, but terrible spools. If you own a 300, look elsewhere.

Does the job well, looks good
Got this product for my 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300. Product looks great and does the job welll. No problems whatsoever with the product in general. Quality also seems to be very nice. I had a problem with the threading on my bike and had to retap the spool sockets and hence installation was not that smooth. But that was a Kawasaki error and nothing to do with the product. The finish did get a few scratches when I had it on the sidewalk and trying to install but not a big issue I think.
Would definitely recommend this product. Overall rating I gave was 4 cause after looking around, I like the looks of the rubberized spools more and feel like they might be easier to work with.

8MM are great
Spools look good and are super strong. Work great with the Pit Bull stands.

Very nice fit and finish to the hardware. Works well with the PitBull stand I also got from Revzilla. Install was easy with a little lock tight and an allen wrench. I purchased the green set and it was a little darker than the picture shows but other than that a solid spool choice.

Great product, looks very nice
Seems very durable and the green color really pops when next to the black on my sway bars. Will be buying again later down the road from these guys again!

Works as is, easy to put on. Came with rings that you can leave on or take off.

Perfect spools for my Ninja 300!
So glad I went with these spools.
The install was very straightforward and easy, quality of parts was pretty good too.
I got the plastic ones and they don't show any scratches, which is nice.
I use these with my pitbull rear stand and I feel very confident that it will hold the bike up with no issues at all, very happy with purchase.
Warning: I bought ebay spools before and they are absolutely terrible, stick with good quality spools from revzilla, like these pitbull ones.
