My Monkey is still a couple of days away, but I just ordered me one of these. Never used one before. I do have a Crapsman motorcycle jack, but it doesn’t look like there’s any place to lift the Monkey underneath. Question for using the pit stand: do you have to use spools, or do they just make lifting easier? If you need ‘em, where do you get ‘em? I’m having trouble locating them online.The Monkey sitting on the Harbor Freight Pit Stand. Yes, the rear wheel is a good half inch or so clear of the ground, perfect. Very stable and good to service the chain or other work that is facilitated by being off the side stand.
The Harbor Freight stand is inexpensive and light weight aluminum. It will not work for my other motorcycles, too narrow but for the Monkey it is about perfect.
