I like the looks of this, and the price is pretty decent. Any body have any experience with this sort of thing?


Thanks!

I just bought a Valentino Powerstand for my YZF600R. It lifts the back of the bike very easy and I was nervous about lifting the bike with a swingarm stand for the first time.

Actually, if you look at all the numbers, it is not that expensive to own a BMW. The extra amount you pay in the payment, you get it back on the insurance cost.
The full coverage for my `04 R1100S is $208/year vs the $2100/year I was quoted for an `05 CBR1000RR.;)

Is that the same carrier? Normally they base most of the cost off the engine displacement and of course replacement value. Interesting quotes!

Insurance company`s look at statistics. Which type of bikes get in accidents more often and why.
I heard their favorit are the Ninjas and the GSXRs followed by the CBRs and R1s.
The young Nicky Hyden wannabes (I was a Kevin Swants wannabe), that treat public roads like it was Laguna Seca, cause a lot of headache to them.
BMW`s are less likely to get involved in an accident. Not because they are better bikes, but because they are usually owned by mature people (over 30). For example my bike. I (32) purchased it from a 59 year old gentelmen.

Get a good rearstand. I use a cyclecat.

Insurance companies are strange. I've had my ZX10 for just over a year now and had to renew my insurance. I did not get full coverage last year because everyone wanted $3000+. This year (I turned 32 in April), Full coverage was $850! Guess I'm considered old enough to have a literbike now.

You know the funny thing is that with State Farm the rates would be just about exactly the same, except for the minor difference because of the years.

I pay $182/year for full coverage on a Kawasaki ZZR600, but would pay exactly the same for a GSXR600.

For a 1200cc bike my rate would just be double, they only care about the cc's and not the "category"(ie: Sport vs Cruiser, etc).

Back on the topic of stands, the Vance and Hines on my Katana makes it such that I can't support it with anything from the bottom, and it also won't take the stock center stand. To get around that, I build a U shaped frame that I put over the bike, and use those orange cargo straps to hook around the frame and lift the bike up.

Works great, and it's not very slow either. I can get it up in the air and back down again easily in 5 minutes. Only about $60 worth of 1 inch iron pipe.

My brother has a Handy lift with a cycle vise and the side extensions. Of course he used to work on them for a living (and still does from time to time).
