Is there any stand in the US that is readily available and easy to get that will fit the Street Triple? I think they're called paddock stands or something but I haven't been able to find any in the US that will fit.

I have the Pit Bull forward-handle for my rear stand. If I were to do it all over, I'd pay the piper and get the Abba stand from England.

Does that harbor freight stand have an attachment to use swingarm spools? If not, be very careful using stand that lifts from swingarm itself - bike is more prone to slipping off (in my experience w/ my SV and cheap stand). I gave up and got a pit bull. Spools are more stable,preferrable IMHO.

Easy Wheeler II

I have a Speed Triple and wanted to share my experience with the Easy Wheeler II. It's very expensive (almost $200 with shipping) but it's built like a machine part to a tank turret and comes with a lifetime warranty. To be honest, I either didn't trust the quality of other stands and/or my ability to use them without dropping my bike (mostly the latter). With the Easy Wheeler, I didn't need any help at all. Plus, the stand is so beautifully made it's like art. The first time I used it, I couldn't help but put plastic under it rather than put it directly on the ground. So if you're looking for something idiot-proof, check out Easy Wheeler.

Harbor Freight sells two models of stands. I have two of their aluminum ones and it comes with bobbin hooks. At least I think that it comes with the hooks. I might of bought the hooks as an accessory - can't remember as I have had them for about a year. They are lightweight and don't rust and they are inexpensive. They work great on my Street Triple and my Tuono.

Rear Paddock Stand

I bought a universal stand for $47.95 with free shipping from motomasterusa off ebay. It works fine. It comes with hooks and paddles. I had to put it together. I didn't see a need to spend a lot of money.

Harbor Freight has a spool/bobbin stand as well, $50. Item number 99701. BTW, there is a 20% coupon in just about every MC and auto mag. out there which saves you $10 on this stand. Here's a pic. of the stand with the HF bobbins which are $5 for the pair. Works as well as any but significantly cheaper than most!
