Swingarm Spools for Wheel Stand

I purchased a new Pit Bull rear wheel stand but need to get the spools that bolt to the swingarm. Not sure which ones fit the 790. Anyone have installed these, and if so, from who? I'm in USA. Any help appreciated. Thanks!

I picked up a pair of Evotech spools. You can buy direct from them or from a reseller like Rottweiler Performance.

Not to hijack your thread Rocky, but I was looking into a set of pitbulls also. I have an old LP with the swing arm supports (shaped like an L) and was wondering if the spools were easier or better. I wouldn't mind picking up some spools/sliders for the rear....kill 2 birds with one stone.

I prefer the spools, more positive stand placement, and yes, slider protection as well.

I bought spools from amazon. Supposedly M10 bolts. They don't fit. The bolt is slightly too big. I guess I got what I paid for. :/

I haven't looked into the specs for all the bolts for all the different sliders and spools you can get yet but that was my worry. I do hate paying the KTM price!

Got a pair at the dealer. Paid too much ~$20, but was during service, so just got it done. I think bolt is M10X1.25.

Using my old trusted stands, front and rear. Pretty happy with the setup.

Bought a cheap chinese set of spools. Wrong bolts. Bought a couple of M10x1.25 bolts (it came with M10x1.5) at the local hardware store for a couple $. nbd.
