Now I need a front stand...

Discussion in 'Mechanical & Technical' started by beansbaxter, Jun 4, 2005.

  1. I already have a front service stand, but it lifts my bike up from up underneath the front forks. I need something that will lift the front of the bike from somewhere else so I can pull my front forks out. I need to do a rebuild on my forks, change out the oil, and replace the bearings in my steering column. I'd like to do it myself, but if I get no stand, then I gotta go into....gasp....Westside and have Lee take care of me.
     
  2. Have you tried using a rear stand, then balancing the front with a floor jack?
     

  3. Support it from the ceiling / rafters / etc...
     
  4. Rafters and the centerstand/rearstand at my house too...
