The FMF is one of the better looking aluminum lifts I have seen, but I've never seen one under a bike, so I can't speak from experience. I have two aluminum lifts from AC (the same stand is available with a number of brand names on it), and they aren't spectacular, but they hold the bike well enough to use while working on it, and they're light. Unless they've improved on the little lever you're supposed to be able to step on to drop the bike, you'd just as well take it off as soon as you get it. Don't pay more than $55 for one of this type.

Make sure when you do buy a bike stand, get the kind that has the rivits below the rubber pading. The rivits will scratch the hell out of your glide plate. My glide plate is carbon fiber so it was a big factor in my selection. I bought the moose stand and the rivits are below the rubber pad, good stand but you have to lift your bike manually. If you own a 450 you should be able to pick it up and set it on the stand! Go do some push-ups! :)
