Default T-Rex front stand (&triple tree) and rear stand review.

Well here are the pics, i gotta say I'm very impressed with the built quality so far...It seems top notch. The welds look great, its got a nice heavy feel to it. I was sent the right pin which is a plus, 8.8grade bolts and washers. Everything was nicely and safely wrapped, all came in one box.

I will be using it to lift the bike up tomorrow once i get home from an appointment. My front fairing and fender are already off. I will be raising the bike back to stock height (it was lowered 1 1/4in when i bought it)

The paint job is crap though. The paint has started to flake off and rust on parts of mine.

yeah i second the paint issue...i bought mine and out of the box there was a lot of flaked off pieces...however, that being said...the quality is very good IMO (haven't seen a ton of stands) and they work great...hell my bike has been up on the rear for the last month or so and just up on the front as well for the last week with no issues...even with wrenching on it, it hasn't moved....for the price, you can't beat them....i mean for the price of one rear pitbull (which i know is great quality) you can get a front and rear that easily do the job...now if you needed a pit stand for track use with heavy up and down and stuff...maybe not (maybe though)...but for wrenching and just putting it up when it's not in use...the T-Rex stands are great....

and on the paint thing, here is my take....THEY ARE STANDS....my stands are not there for show...they are there to lift the bike and let me work on it...they are going to get dirty, scuffed, etc....so i don't really care that some paint flakes off, i mean...really....if i was using them for a show, different story, but that isn't what i bought them for....that being said...unless the paint flaking actually begins to cause me a problem...i don't care...and worst case scenario...whip out the rattle can and touch 'er up....

Well so far seems very very stable, i shook it around a couple times real real hard, had to wrench on it to raise my front forks back up and was very stable, even sat on it and wiggled it around.
