Has anyone used these before? I'm looking for a front stand to work on my fork legs and steering head bearings.

Well I got a SV650s on there before.

They do make similar setups with adjustable feet..




That is the one I used a few years ago for the same reason.

Those stands are BAD news my buddy bought a set for the same reason and unless your garage floor is PERFECTLY flat and level I wouldnt even waste the money. You can get a bike Jack with tie downs at sears or auto/zone for less than $100 and they are much more multi purpose and user friendly. but thats just my

You take the fairings off.

You can use a couple blocks of wood on either side of the exhaust pipe so that all of the weight is supported by the engine block and not resting on the exhaust.

that's what i feared. i didn't know how stable that setup was.
previously, i had tie downs from my ceiling supports. only problem was that it too wasn't stable (swings abit).

methinks about investing in a mig welder and make my own jacks and tire mounter/balancer.

The one with my 9R on it was real stable. You can see it had swing out riggers to ensure it. But besides pulling the front neck.. there is nothing else you really need it for if you have a tripple clamp stand and swing arm stand. Raffters idea might be enough. Just double up the straps. or be like Drewpy with a multi-function ladder

seems like the base of those stands arent built right....whose garage floor isnt perfect flat?

the jacks are pretty good, when positioned right, my dads harley is near impossible to knock over, or even tilt, and thats without straps

makes it easy to clean all that chrome eh gman?

That's because all the chrome and archaic engine technology makes those things heavy as F&*k

I have used this same type of stand made by Pit Bull. They are great!! Very useful if you plan on doing any kind of work on the front end.
If you have non fold able rear sets you can use them to support the rear of the bike as well.
