Pit Bull Spooled Forward Handle Rear Stand
Fits my bike without having to remove anything :)
After cleaning and lubing the chain once without a rear stand I vowed never to try that again. Reading some forums related to my bike a lot of people commented that they had trouble finding a useable rear stand without either taking the license plate off or eliminating the rear fender entirely. Now I like the way they look with the fender gone, but I'm not quite ready to jump into that yet so here I am.
This stand lets me get the bike up easily and I didn't have to remove anything. Quite the contrary I even got to add spools! More stuff on the bike is better. Right?
tldr: BUY THIS! It works.

I have no experience with any of the competing motorcycle stands out there but I can say this stand is solid. I have used other methods, to include blocks of wood and vehicle jack stands to prop a bike up which are shaky and pretty sketchy at best. I was a little hesitant during my first attempt to get my bike on the stand but once it was up the solid build of the stand gave me plenty of confidence to apply heavy wrenching, if needed. +1 for being made in the USA.

Great build quality, easy to use
This is my 3rd stand, first from Pitbull. I really like the fact that this stand can be used in either direction. Using it with the arm facing the front (once set) does require you to slide the stand under the bike which takes a little getting the used to but is so easy to use!

A one man rear stand.
This stand was very easy to use. It gave me the confidence to be able to lift my bike off the ground by myself without worrying about dropping my ride. The stand has a nice finish.

NOT disappointed at all!
Pit Bull is known for making quality products that work well, look great, and aren't so expensive you need to take out a loan and this stand is no different.
Amazing build quality and clean welds are the first things you will notice along with the stands nice weight and sturdy feel! Once you set the spool adapters up for your bikes height width it is very easy to life and drop the bike by yourself without any problems! Being able to use the stand easily is important for those that do not always have a helper like myself! The lever/handle provides more than enough leverage to lift the bike with ease and once you have it lifeless the bike can be rolled forward and backwards without removing the stand,
I have owned many pit bull stands for many bikes and this is a welcome addition. If you are between this an the hybrid rear stand, I would opt for this as almost every bike can use spools, it is amazing to lift and drop the bike by yourself and the stand stays out of the way when doing wheel work or upgrades.

Wish I had gotten one sooner
Finally an easy way to remove the rear tire on my S1000rr! Setup is easy and it has a nice corrosion resistant finish. Lifting the bike off the ground is much easier than a conventional style pit stand IMO as well. 10 out of 10 product.

Excellent stand. Great build quality.
I was extremely impressed with the build quality of this stand as soon as I removed the bubble wrap. Very well made and the adjustable parts fit perfectly. It was very easy to set up after measuring the width and height of the spools on my 2015 Ducati Monster 821. The stand worked great - very easy to lift the bike. It'll take a while to get used to lining up the opposite spool since it's difficult to see, but once I did the stand worked great. Highly recommended!

It will outlast both the ride and the rider.
This thing is so overbuilt, I am sure it will outlast both me and my ride. I like the forward facing handle -- I am at less risk of kicking it when walking around the bike, and after a few minutes of practice (this is my first motorcycle without a center stand), I can confidently lift my bike with ease. The adjustable width and height are very welcome. I wish, though, that the height adjusters can be locked by other means rather than tightening the retaining bolts -- because I am paranoid of the bolts letting go and the bike sliding, I end up over-tightening them. All in all, it is a confidence-inspiring piece of equipment. Revzilla shipped it in an oversized box with tons of wrapping material, and it arrived in perfect condition.
