T-Rex Motorcycle Stands

Well I recall that in the 'stands group buy' thread you all wanted to know how I felt about the TRex stands once I got them.

In short, I'm extremely pleased. I am never one to skimp on cost and sacrifice quality. I had always planned to buy a set of pitbull stands, but this deal was too good to pass up, and it turned out to pay off. I figured I would give them a shot and if they sucked, return them. I certainly won't do that. Unless you absolutely HAVE to have the pitbulls for brand name or whatever, I wouldn't spend the extra cash. These are a great set of stands and they work perfectly. I got a rear stand that can do swingarm or spools, a front fork stand with triple tree adapter, a set of rear spools, and all hardware for 160 bucks shipped. That's the price of ONE pitbull front triple tree stand. You can't beat this deal, and for all of you that were worried about the quality, rest assured it is top-notch

They showed up and everything was packed up EXTREMELY well, all wrapped carefully and safe. I pulled it all out and assembled it. Although the stands are two piece, the quality is great, and they aren't going to break. Here is a picture of everything you get and I have noted what all the parts are (note that it comes with the triple tree pins for all sport bikes):

Here is a picture of the two stands:

Bike up on both stands:

Anyways, now that I have been the TWF 'guinea pig' to test these out , you can all be comfortable in buying them. I wouldn't spend your cash unnecessarily on anything more expensive. Buy these and a track day.

You can find them on ebay just search for the username t-rexstands, or I think he has a website also. The guy's name is Tom and he's very helpful. He also sells non-triple tree fronts, and non-combo packages as well, or various setups in case you already have a rear or something

Yeah, the front stand can do fork by itself or triple tree with the adapter.

In the second picture it is shown in fork mode, then in the third picture I've shown it put together to do triple tree duty

The rear can do swingarm or spool by flipping the attachments upside down in their slide holes.

Sheesh... no one listened to me when I said they were a good buy...

Glad you are happy with yours, and like previously stated, I would recomend them to anyone.
I just wish I would've gotten the triple tree attachment, I'm stuck with fork only.

I bet if you email Tom he will sell you just the triple tree attachment for a reasonable price... he's a trustworthy guy if you just Paypal him the money. He can take a few days to answer emails though because he's very busy.

There was no group buy on these stands. People were trying to arrange a group buy on stands, and this brand was brought up. After looking at them, I figured I would take a chance and it paid off, they are great. Buy yourself a set.

There will never be a group buy on these, they are already being sold at such a good price. The owner won't do a group buy. Just go to ebay or their website and buy them (eBay user t-rexstands I think)

These look nice... I like how they keep the bike off the ground.... I bet that comes in handy.

What's the benefit of the triple tree part?

They are more stable and allow you to take off the forks, and make wheel removal safer and easier. prob some other benefits too that i haven't thought of.

He has different colors (I don't know what color your bike is) and combo configurations (rear with fork front, rear with triple tree front, just rear, just front, just triple tree front, etc) and I'm glad my review was helpful
