I'd buy one, but only if it can be adapted to fit my track bike, an RC51. I doubt it can, but I sent them an email to see. If it turns out it'll work for both then I'm in for one with casters.

Well, I'm out. Can't fit one to an RC51. It was nice to hear back from them so quickly, though.

This is probably one of the best bangs for the buck I have ever seen when it comes to motorcycle related equipment!
Shipping to downunder issue aside Karl, will it lift our bikes?

cheers,

Phil

Here are comparison pics of old (with the Motomfg adapter installed) vs 2013 Street R (I just lifted this pic off a video from German M/Cycle show)





Although the frame is new, the upper mount is at the same frame/engine mount location, so that should be the same. And Swing Arm adjuster also looks to be same (although is under that cover).

But that is no guarantee.

I think it unlikely there will be another GB for quite some time.

I have the Bursig unit for my 2012 and I can highly recommend this type of stand to anyone that's on the fence about this buy.

The Motomfg and the Bursig look very similar, but I actually prefer the style of the Motomfg's wheels and the black sleeve (mine's gold).

I still use my Pit Bull stands for work on uneven surfaces or if I want the center of the bike unobstructed.

After having one, I wouldn't go without a Bursig or Motomfg stand.

Appreciate your review Jimbo
I think they are both excellent products and the biggest differentiator with the Motomfg is most certainly the price. You have to ask if that price might mean lesser quality and although have not seen the Bursig first-hand to compare, cannot see how the quality could be better - I was delighted with that aspect right out of the box (and even IN the box!)
I too think the double wheels are pretty neat.

The "major" difference, as far as I gathered in my research, is that the Bursig unit is significantly lighter which may matter in the pit at the track but I really can't justify the significantly more expensive Bursig unit for a few pounds.
