Good call, Edward. If I were SAROY I'd be ordering that in a flash. You guys have all the good stuff!

However, for @SAROY 's info, shipping will cost around £80.00 and there might be customs. I learnt this when I recently purchased and imported a Pit Bull 'single arm' stand.

the stand I looked at from Design Course was £400+, although it did look amazing quality.

The basic one I bought from you nigel does the job for all MV's, just wanted something specual for the Pirelli

The reason you DON'T want a stand with a loop handle ......it only works on the sprocket side for changing tires,
You can't service the sprocket/cush drive, which you need to on the criples
You might want to take a picture of a black bike and black stand with a light background......so we can see it :wink2:

The most functional stand is the T-Rex, has a reversible handle so you won't trip on it and a retention bolt so you can warm the bike
on the stand......it's cheaper than the PitBull too :grin2:

+1 for the T-Rex stand. Very well made and easy to use on either side of the bike.

Or if youre dropping 500 doubloons anyways, get a Bursig. Not an aesthetic piece but at that point you can roll it around the garage with nothing but a frame/engine in place if you wanted to..

+1 If you’re not just using it for display. The bursig style stands are amazing for working on the bike, and invaluable for tear down all the way to the frame

Abba is another lift. My fav...
True, but they're a pain in the butt and nowhere near the practical, timeless operation of a single-sided axle stand. (For clarification, I do have an ABBA Superbike Stand with both MV and Honda fittings, and a Pit Pull for the MV. I view the ABBA as more of a permanent/maintenance stand rather than one for short-term usage.:wink2:)

Interesting... This video describes the Abba Sky Lift operation. It would certainly be great for shop work.

That is why I stuck with the Bursig. The ABBA is a bit more of a faff for just storing the bike, better for working on it though. But the bursig is, in my opinion, easier than a axle stand and has the added benefit of getting both wheels off of the ground at the same time and making the bike easier to move around.

Being said I also have a swingarm stand as well, I use it for cleaning, etc.

The one in your (SAROY) pic is available from MV themselves. Or atleast that is what I was told by MV here in Aus. Ask a dealer. They are not cheap though.... They were asking about 1000-1200AUD. Can't quite remember now.

Try this abba stand - i use the normal through the hub for storage/wheels changes - but this for any other work

Put bike on normal through the hub rear stand then fit this, then you have full access to bike - allows you setup ride height on older F4 etc as well as servicing rear shock etc etc
