A buddy is trying to sell me his front and rear suzuki stands. I can't seem to get the rear to work. Seems like the bike has too much lean on the side stand in relation to where the rear stand should grab the spools. Plus the reflector under the plate is in the way a bit. Front isn't any better.

Is it the stand or am I an idiot?

I have used pit bull stands in the past on other bikes with 0 issues.

Thanks.

Nope, not an idiot. The spools on the N1K are in a crappy location; I think they are too far forward and too low; most stands will interfere with the rear fender.

I bought a Pitbull stand that is height adjustable with a removable handle but it's still not great. It takes a lot effort to lift up the rear; I can't do it with one arm.
