This might be the best money Ive spent on a stand! With the 03-05 R6's and a fork lift stand you couldn't get the front axle out, and once you did the front of the bike was not stable. With this stand takes away that problem and the hassle of messing with the stand and so on. This was well worth the money! Bike is sturdy when lifted and the stand is as well so you wont have to worry about your bike falling. Great stand for the money, Highly recommended!
