    My buddy made me two of these, been using them for 2 years with no issues. Also Safety First Racing uses a rod through axel type for hauling 10 GSXR600 - no issues.


    I can't beleive that this is going to put anymore force on the swingarm pivot then when riding the bike.

    Of course Pro-8 is pretty slow so transporting like this may induce more force on his bike. ;) :D

    Yup, I completely agree that their stands are top of the line. I own both a rear stand and a new front stand. I wouldn't buy anything else. That's why I am not even questioning the trailer restraint system quality.

    that would be kinda like saying pitbull copied *redesigned* someone else who had this done a long time ago;

    I have this one... and love it!!! more than a few 10+ hour trips and no problems at all.

    which one is better? meh.

    The Pit Bull stand is nothing like the one shown in the pictures and functions completely different...

    I've gotta agree with Chip. The similarities end at the rod through the axle. That's as far as it goes. Everything else changes entirely.

    I have the STS, but I gotta say that the Pit-Bull looks like it would be easier to operate. I'll probably pick one up for next year.

    Definitely on my winter shopping list, while the CDN dollar is on par with the US dollar.

    funny all of this discussion about the new stands, little do you all know Charlie has had a rear stand restraint system all year long. Only avail to M4, i saw it when i took may's and barneys bike to indy, and have been bugging him for one ever since. So ask Ju if his bike are bending or breaking :beer:

    BTW Charlie shipped me mine 3 days ago:) haven't installed it yet but will post pic if you want.

    Actually....there was a previous version that's about three years old....but yes, this version has been in the testing phase for almost a year that I know about.

    Charlie and Co. doesn't just make this stuff up and send it out there.....everything is tested to death!

    Okay, I want to know one thing and one thing only now that we have all of the engineers in here - will it work if the bike has been run on a treadmill the size of a runway?
  18. Yes, they took a small part of a design and improved it dramatically. Correct me if im wrong, but that is pretty much the American way. I have two pit bull front stands and one rear stand, and I will be adding one of these to my collection. When I help someone who doesnt have a pit bull put there bike on a stand, I can immediatly see the superiority of the pit bull product.

    Of course it will work, but the bike can't take off if it's locked in. :rolleyes:

    maybe someone can design one that goes though the front
    of the swingarm though the frame.
