I use this one for both my bikes, and they have been great.

The only tricky part is the front triple tree opening on the Kawasaki's are HUGE! I went to Harbor Freight and bought a cheap 20mm socket that slides over the pin on the stand to take up the slack. I haven't seen an adapter that is that large on other model bikes. But both the 2009 Ninja and 2017 Z650 have that large opening.

Bored? Looking for info? Check here:

The Pit Bull forward-handle rear stand is very good. With the handle facing forward, you can lift the rear wheel while standing beside (rather than behind) the motorcycle. And the forward-facing handle doesn't stick out, so it is space-efficient in the garage. The Pit Bull 8 mm aluminum spool kit works perfectly with the stand. (You want metal spools, or else the right one will melt from the exhaust blasting it.)

Is there a certain pitbull stand I need to get? Do you have the link or anything? I've always had old bikes with center stands. I'm not really familiar with the pitbull stands, although I've heard of them. Thank you!

Here's a link for the Pit Bull stand:
It is pricey but built like a brick **** house.
You will also need the spools. Be sure to get aluminum spools, which Pit Bull sells. Size 8 mm.
My previous motorcycle had a center stand, which I loved. But I am getting used to the the rear stand. It is great for servicing the chain.
