if i had to do it the getto way :roll: :lol: i would pull the side body work , get a set of jack stands under the frame around the motor. this is what i did to get the forks/front wheel off my katana. have someone else help ya so that you can lift the bike onto the jackstands.Hawkshot99 said:how would you go about doing this if you dont have a center stand?
One of the best ways, but not the cheapest is the pit bull stand that lifts the front end by the steering stem. ($150)Dr. Feelgood said:No I'm not stealing it.....I'm jacking it up. What's the best way to do it? I want to take off the front wheel. Would it be best to put it on the center stand then use a floor jack on the front of the frame?
thats another good idea. get some SOFT TIES and loop them around the bars, loop them over the hook and away ya go. STILL USE THE CENTERSTANDDr. Feelgood said:Actually, now that you mention it, I have an engine hoist. Guess I can use that if the jack deal doesn't work out.
rednek426 said:another thing you can do is get a driend who's really bored to hold the back of the bike down while the front wheel is off with the centerstand down... it take's a really bored friend for that. pretty much the same thing as setting something heavy on the back of the bike.
the local shops drop the centerstand, take a strap across the back seat and cinch it down so that the rear tire is touching the ground lightly. i'd trust this way, as the bike is not going to move.
