PitBull H2 stand

Just got a phone call from Pit Bull ...the pin on the stand is short and the stand can contact the wheel when placed on that side. They're sending me a new pin that should solve the problem. Probably longer with a shoulder to offset it from hitting the wheel

I had seen that myself but hadn't called them yet. That is just good customer support!

I just bought the hybrid rear ss stand...no call from there, maybe they fixed ity before I bought mine? What do they consider 'short'?

Hope the pin is at least 8 inches long, which is what it would take

to contact both 12 point inserts.

The spacer inside is a larger ID , so less than a full length 8 "pin will be

a bit sloppy.

the original pin was probably standard length of normal pins ~4 inches? and it seemed wobbly to me and totally wrong on the wheel side

...the person that called seemed to know exactly the problem and I suspect they will address it, a long pin like the Kawi stand. I will snap a photo of the new pin when I get it.

Here is quick and dirty.

The Ducati stand uses a 25 mm ID ( .985 inch ) bearing in the spindle.

Had some 1 inch threaded rod that has been under the table for years.

OD was .990 inch.

Shaved it just a bit and bought some 1 inch by 8 pitch jam nuts.

Used a 25 mm axle sleeve from the junk box to make the right hand nut easier to reach,

since the wheel has a recess on the right hand side.

Sleeve has a bevel end to match the bevel in the kaw spindle.

Sleeve not on red stand in 1st picture.

Can hand tighten to make an even more secure fit and stand stays on bike if

I want to move it around the garage.

Can also use another piece with my 2 point rear stand.

I have that moto-d stand...the pin is a tad smaller than the ID of the hub.I'm gonna get some of that non-slip adhesive backed 'tape'...the kind they use on walkways and such...wrap a couple of times...should be fine.

I ordered the PitBull rear and a front head stand. I got the call on Wednesday at the dealership. I told her bike was on the stands outside my office. She asked me not to use it till I got he new pin. She did not explain the problem. I do like the stands. Very high quality. The clearance between the fairing and the fender is tight for the headstand. I worry about scratching the bike when putting it on the head stand. I am going to warp the stand in some kind of soft material. I do like that the head stand seems to be more steady than the fork stand I was using on my ZX10R.

Picture with beveled end spacers.

When hand tightened , it takes up any remaining slack, though the

8 inch long shaft already does a better job than any comercial stand I've seen.
