BTW, to the people who say you can stick bolts in a spool hole - I've done that, but always been chary about it. With the spools torqued in place, they support the face of the swingarm where it's tapped. Without them, I can see a lot of leverage placed on the edge of that bolt hole.
Hmmm... That's a good point. I didn't think about that. Maybe should spend $10, and get a better looking product to boot!
It's been a long time since I've been around a Guzzi, but I don't recall any shaft-driven bikes being all that friendly to any universal/pad stand.
Anyway, I didn't post the video as a Pit Bull advertisement/endorsement. I've just been watching videos on YouTube for about an hour and this one reminded me of this thread.
Thanks everyone for your posts. I have enough intelligence to figure out when I have a faulty or unreliable tool. If the stand seems weak, too flexible, or in any way unreliable, I will return it/sell it and get a better one. Like Kevin said: the bike will just sit on the stand. I wont put it through any side to side motion nor will I sit on the bike while its on the stand. I want it only for maintenance and tire changing.
Thanks again guys.
