Got the Murph's stand in, and it is a duplicate of the Suzuki. The welds on mine are fine, though the bolts feel a little light duty. Since the Suzuki was coming off, reused the heavier bolts where appropriate. Initial install was atrociously stiff, so took it all apart and used MUCH more grease everywhere around the pivots and bushings. Still not perfect, but 70% better. Now have to nudge the stand up a bit after use, much like I had to do with the Suzuki one. Got to reexperience the joy of the springs. Should have watched the video for the string method, instead used a long screwdriver to leverage the springs onto the pin. I'm happy with it.
