Rear for sure, a combination of F/R considered.

the harbor freight rear paddock stand has worked great for me, ive even moved my bike (versys 650) around in the garage with the rear tire removed on it and had no issues . but thats only a rear stand youll still need to find another for the front

The HF and Cycle Gear stands are not designed to be used with a person sitting on them. Also, both stands can fold fairly easily.

Practicing body position is awesome on stands, and peace of mind is worth the other 40-50 bucks in my opinion, plus my pit bull takes half the effort to lift and is way easier when im doing it by myself especialy when tired from a track session and there is nobody to help, you ever try a nice stand before? Ive learned my lesson from buying junk and buying twice. Im a guy i dont care about his pants???

i have no problem getting my bikes on and off my stand by myself, and again to each there own. i dont have the money to waist multi hundred dollars on a stand (or anything) so i just use what i have that works.... and the pants thing was kinda a joke....

Technically it's "waste". That other word defines a body part. There is no such thing as "waste" when it comes to safety for you or your bike. The question would be, "Do you have to money to repair your bike when those cheap stands fail?"

A pair of those cheap HF stands came with the CBR, and sure enough, while trying to remove the clip-ons, because of how much flex they have, the bike dropped off the front stand. Fortunately I still had the front wheel on or it would have landed directly on the fork lowers.

I have been doing some research, and it seems that if you use the stand correctly - line it up nicely before propping up the bike, a lower priced stand should be able to withstand the rear weight fine.

I'm intrigued by the abba stands that lift bikes at the swingarm pivot. Pricey little buggers that require a slight bit more finagling whilst propping up your ride, but it makes good mechanical sense.

Before I don the flame suit on, abba (no, not the disco group) has been around for a while and seem to have a good product. The bits that go into the swingarm pivot are very model specific, so the stand does not harm or strip the pivot hardware.

For $275, you have a front and rear stand all in one.

Something to consider.

You should never use a front stand without it bieng on a rear stand, if price is the deciding factor just get cheapo stands they are always on clist for under 100 for a pair, they work... usually.
