Post need a second set of stands..
Looking for a pair of inexpensive but decently made fork and swingarm (spool) stands, ONLY for use in the garage... GO!

So far one person said T-rex, another DMP, an then there's always the Moto-D camp, but .055" tubing isn't thick enough for my tastes. I just wish I could find specs on these damn things.

I know, I know, just buy another set of PitBull stands.. but my free cash is kinda tight right now, and $130 is looking a lot more appealing than $300. Anyone have a line on some used ones? Just need a universal fork stand and spooled rear stand..

Since it's "garage only", I don't imagine weight is a consideration.
Woodcrafts are light. My rear was $110 plus shipping from Woodcraft, the fronts are $130. You might prolly could find both for $240 w/o shipping from a distributor.

Woodcrafts aren't overly stout like a Pit Bull, but I trust 'em to be nearly as stable. I don't trust any front stands that lift from the axle but I do own and use 'em.
Woodcraft uses the pin style front stand that lifts from the triple clamp. Bikes don't seem able to fall off the pins :D and more in-depth front-end maintenance can be achieved with the pin type.

One nice thing about the Woodcraft rear stands, there's not a big handle sticking out getting in the way of your feet or creeper. That makes 'em pretty garage friendly. The fronts aren't as invisible but still better than the big handle types.

:fencing: I've used all kinds of stands and wouldn't have a problem buying a known brand with a reputation, even if it costs a few dollars more. My opinion on all the Chinese shit(I assume that's where the cheap stands are made) is that it's glorified backyard machining. Crap compared to the dedicated stand MFGs.
But, hey, if you think your thousands of dollars worth of equipment being supported by a dimes worth of shit engineering and materials is an acceptable risk...I won't say i told ya so. ;)
