of course some searching or a pair of caliper gauges will get you the answer.. :blind: I figured I'd post up anyways as I found it tough to get confirmation. Went with woodcraft's aluminum spools with my pitbull rear stand. Works great.

Does anyone know what the thread pitch of the bolt is?
New to the subject: would it fit any PitBull rear stand?

Yes any pitbull dual sided (not for single sided swing arms) will work just fine. Mine works great!
I ordered some Monster 821 swingarm spools / bobbins from ebay and they arrived today.


If you look at the pic you can see there is a step so one would assume they are correct. If you look at the 821 swingarm where they should mount there is a recess where the step of the spool/bobbin goes into. But the step on the bobbin is too big. Maybe I need to find an engineer with a lathe and get him to turn them down? Do the woodcraft ones have a smaller step that goes into the recess of the swingarm?

Mine look like this - Spools all www.woodcraft-cfm.com

The lip fits in the recessed area if I remember correctly.
The step or lip on the spools I have don't fit into the recess. I think I will find someone to turn the step/lip down to the correct diameter so the fir into the swingarm recess.

Anyone have a link where you can buy a Ducati rear stand? I haven't found one for the 821, though I know the Pit Bull will work just fine.
