For $99 this thing looks well-worth it. I'm getting ready to remove the forks for a DK revalve and Ohlins springs. Got a good pair of jack-stands for $25 at Pep Boys. :evilaugh:
What's good for a sport bike? A regular car jack with the smaller round piece that lifts?Joel said:Not sure that will work on a sport bike. They work well on harleys or older bikes with a frame under the motor.
Here is an idea a friend provided to me.Chain said:We just argued about those things a couple weeks ago.
If you have an open ceiling in your garage/workspace you can even hang the bike by the triple off the rafters with tie downs. YMMVCreeper said:Here is an idea a friend provided to me.
To get the front forks off, put a steel rod through the middle of the swingarm, jack up the bike with a regular car jack, and place some jack stands under the steel rod and let the bike down. Then place the car jack under the motor and slightly jack up the bike. This will give enough clearance to get the front wheel off.
Getting to the rear suspension is a little bit easier if you have aftermarket rear sets. Jack the bike up and slide some jack stands under your rear sets (assuming they don't fold, which most don't).
I agree. It's the correct way to do it. It's cool that the Lockhart stand doubles as either a triple tree stand or regular front stand.BDA116 said:I think you should just get a steering stem stand. Lockhart makes a pretty cheap one that works well enough if you don't want to shell out big dollars.
