Where can I get an Engine Stand?

Something like this:

http://www.corsair-industries.com/pa...ngine%20Stand/



OEM is fine but seems bulky, I'm also not sure of cost.

It appears that I have a little oil leaking where the head meets the block and wanted to take it apart and put a new seal. I don't do wood-work at any level and it seems very difficult to support without something properly designed for it.

While I'm at it, is there also a single stand I can use to support the bike and take both wheels off. I've seen the center stand at "redracing" but everyone advices here not to shop there, also would like some feedback on this.


thoughts, experiences?

The cylinder base gasket can be replaced without completely removing the engine from the frame by undoing the frame bolts and letting it swing down on the swingarm pivot,I used a rear stand,a small floor jack under the sump and raised the front end from a gantry allowing ample access...I hope this helps
