Pit Bull Spooled Forward Handle Rear Stand
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.

Easy to use, great build quality
I bought this stand because I had nothing to hold my bike from back(without taking pillion seat off) to deploy conventional rear stand. This one is easy to deploy since you only need to hold the hand bar and bring the bike to the upright position.
Note to Ducati 899 owners: You would have to adjust the height of the stand to maximum (maximum clearance) , otherwise the rear wheel will touch the bottom bar and you won't be able to deploy it properly.

This is an awesome stand
This is my second stand. I originally ordered the Pitbull SS Rear stand, but it wouldn't work on my Kawasaki Vulcan S. It would hit the fender and license plate, so I returned it.
I got this forward facing rear stand instead, and it works great! I actually prefer the forward handle, as there is less sticking out the back to trip on. Its a tad tricky to get it on the spool, as its a little tough to see the other side of the bike, but after a doing it a few times, it second nature.
This is very sturdy, and should last a long, long time.

Expensive, but convenient
I've had this stand for a few months now, using it on my 2005 Suzuki SV650. It takes a little getting figuring out and getting used to, but is really useful once you know how to work it. For instance, on the SV, you need to put the kick-stand up to slide the rear stand into place, then look over the bike to the right side to make sure the spools line up with the stand. Kinda awkward to do the first couple times, but now I can do it in seconds. As always with Pitbull, they're really well built, and sturdy. 4 stars just because they are pretty pricey.
