Removing both wheels

Any issue I might expect? Was going to set the bike on stands. Might even run a 2x4 across between stands to form a stand. Need to have tires mounted so need to remove both wheels.

So thinking out bike on center stand. Raise rear and support on jack stand and then raising front. I have numerous jack stands and hydraulic jacks.

The first time I replaced my tires I had both wheels off. On the center and a jack under the front of the engine. Just make sure it's not wobbly and you shouldn't have any problems.

I did as Deviate .....but put a jack under the swingarm by the rear shock after I took the wheel off. This to avoid it fallng back if some neighborhood kid jumped on the bike or if my fat cat had the same idea.

Take the front wheel off first btw. You can then tilt the bike more forward to raise the rear so the rear tire clears the fender......

Both my wheels are off the bike right meow. I have it on the center stand and the forks resting on the concrete floor (engine is out as well) with a hand towel under the forks so they don't get dinged up.

"Both my wheels are off the bike right meow"

In the movie Supercops? Two of the officers have a bet on how many times one can insert the word "meow" into the conversation when pulling a car over.

You're up to one.

(And I got two)
