This seems pretty expensive, but has the advantage of the spools and some long term ease and good looks.
 
My stupid question is,.. well I assume you put these on permanently, and not just to adjust the chain or whatever. It is worded almost like they are marketing a tool and not an upgrade.
 
I like the fact that there is no drilling like some other after market spool mods for FZ-07 and the spools aren't in the axle since you might be working on the axle.
 
Thoughts?

Yes, "permanent".... it replaces the silver end-cap on the swingarm. I got a set myself, but haven't installed yet.
 
Basically looks "trick" and incorporates spools vs. drilling the swingarm.

Yup, those are nice too. I just like the idea of not having to do any freehand drilling with the others. Probably not a big deal tho. Good drill and a nice center punch to guide the start.

why don't you just get a swingarm stand? I don't see the problem

I never said there was a problem :)
I'd just like to have a spool.
 
I'll probably get the SS Pitbull rear stand, so I won't NEED it, but it's nice to have.
 
They do have some advantages, but I agree they are not absolutely necessary.

I got a set $178 shipped.  Pricey, but I think they are worth it.  I use them all the time for chain lube, oil change, chain adjustment.

Thanks for that input. They are pricey, but the bike is my only fun toy and I reserve the right to indulge myself since I work practically all the time. I'm leaning towards them since if I don't like em, it's not a permanant mod, and I could always sell them, but I won't cuz I think I like em, re-enforced by your endorsement.  Databyter
