use a hydraulic car jack and put it on the bottom of your engine. I did this when I was removing my forks off the R6.slingblade said:
I'm definatly going to pick up a front stand, just a matter of time. Not this time though!RayOSV said:Buy a front stand to use with the rear stand. On two stands, the bike is very stable without wheels which makes them easier to put back on. The straps to the rafters or jack under the engine may work OK, but may also damage something or result in an oops. :cry
That's the simplest way to do it.Lok said:When I used to work at a motorcycle shop I would use some tie downs and look them over the rafters and pull the front end of my bike up by the handlebars. Not sure if it'd work at your home garage, but it's an idea.
