its so you can spin the back wheel up too 15000rpm while its in the air...then you kick the bike off the stand....jk...

its mostly for servicing the bike lubing chain, removing rear wheel etc.

and for track bikes side stands are allowed, so they all bascially use either just the rear stand or front and rear stands if you want tire warmers on etc.

Same concept as jacks, so you don't drag the stand on pavement. It basically rolls as the bike is lifted onto it.

Do you mean the standard kick stand? No, if the bike is for racing and is race prepped, the kick stand must be taken off. If your doing track days then, yes, the kick stand can be left on.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

The silver should be the same silver as on the rest of the bike, and then I have some OEM decals for it. When do you have time?

Ok. Now I see what you mean. The first pic was deceiving. I need to find some time to fit you in at work. I should prob come by to take a look sometime soon. Why not wait till the season is over to paint it? Or you want to show it off before you take it off the road?

That isn't his bike. Or wasn't the one that he sold. Our friend sells these kits locally. You interested?

How much do these kits run for?

Do they have a website we can check out?
