This thread seems to have died just as an interesting question was asked. I was interested in knowing what has to be dismantled before a head lift stand can be used on the v4.

Last week I contacted Pit Bull about front (dual, fork and head lift) and rear stands for the v4. I was told they had sent a new pin for the head lift stand to a tester but had not received any response yet. So that tells me the v4 requires a special, as yet unavailable, pin in order to use the front stand as a head lift.

I want to be sure this is the right purchase. These stands are very expensive and freight cost to Aus is the cost of a third stand. Total for two stands shipped to Sydney is nearly USD$800 (AUD$1100). More if I add pins for a second bike.

the normal pitbull race stands are crazy heavy duty.. like they are far too heavy.. if anybody plans on a lot of track riding, warmers on/off, racing etc.., the stands see alot of action and the weight of them will get to you.. its a workout dragging the damn stands around as they were built to last 500 years.. .. got chucked in no time, we use the ones right from ducati., simple and lightweight.. (ps., the pitbull trailer restraints are AWESOME..!!)

ps, the head lift is terrible (not brand specific)., you'll have your race suit on, you'll be hot and then you'll be fumbling around trying to get the stupid pin between the fender and the fairing (theres no room) and then to line up the pin with the hole EXACTLY perfect in the blackness.. fk never again.. then when you want to remove it will stick in the bore and now you're fumbling around trying to remove the sticking pin so you can make the grid ontime.. haha.. omg i hated the thing..
Thanks from Pete T

Jr51, mate thanks for your response. You certainly contribute a perspective that I had not considered seeing as I haven't tracked in quite a while. I can see where light weight might be more important than bomb proof. ��

My setup. Works really well track side. Word of caution for anyone using rear Ducati performance stand. The bolt holding black plastic round piece can get loose as you spin the rear wheel and your bike can end up on its side. Put red loctite on it and never experience this. My detailer dropped my bike like this.

European riders would struggle to find better stands than Gee Tech.
Quality, hand made stands at very fair prices.
