I agree it does seem sloppy, but I guess we get what we pay for. Once it's on the stand I find it's very stable, I've straddled the bike and tried to rock it left/right gently and there's no give.
My sediments too. It does what it's designed to do very well. Guess that makes me a Venom fan... ruined this forum

If the Pit Bull does not work, I will try the Woodcraft.
Me too, there's a huge jump in price. Pity there's not something in between.
I'd be interested to hear your opinion on the new stand, whichever you end up using.

Well I'm about to do the fork seals and spring bushings, and I'm a little dubious about putting the front and rear on stands. I'm thinking about taking off the tank and seat, strap the frame and use an engine hoist.
