Hi.

Will only a rear stand be enough for working on the bike?
For oil changes or taking the fuel tank off etc?

Thanks.

10:4 on that one. Pit Bull makes some good ones. It just depends on whether you are comfortable with how the handle works, pulling towards the front of the bike or pressing to the rear.

I have a cheap rear stand I bought at Harbor Freight for about $30. So far it has worked great for the last six years.

A rear stand will be enough for everything but taking the front wheel or forks off. For tire changes it's cheaper to remove both wheels and drive them to a shop rather than have the shop remove the wheels for you, so you will need a front stand eventually.

For the rear stand, yes you can get away with a Harbor Freight or Cycle Gear rear stand. They flex a little but I'm over 230lbs with gear on and I practice body position on mine and it has been fine for the last 10 years. For a front stand I would recommend a more expensive brand like Pit Bull. The cheaper ones tend to slide off the forks easily. That said I would also recommend just spending the extra and getting a triple tree stand instead of the fork stand. Peace of mind kind of thing. Alternatively you can skip the front stand completely if you can hoist your bike with some ratchet straps and ceiling rafters or something like that. I prefer this method over budget fork stands.

I have the fender eliminator and annitori quick shifter to install.
But the weather has been nice so I have been busy riding on weekends.

Thank you.
