I'm looking to see how everyone else is raising their front wheel off the ground for removal. I've looked at a number of front stands, but none of them are made for twins. They're all for sportbikes with 17 inch wheels.

I have engine guards on mine so it works for me to pick up the front end and put jack stands under the bars. Dont see why you couldn't do the same under the frame although my jackstands are too high for that. Shorter ones should work good.

I use a lift similar to this one....



Got it at Kmart, on clearance for less than $30.
With a jack or whatever kind of support you use, you should make sure to somehow secure the bike from tipping over.

I used the jack that came with my pickup. Put it on the center stand. Put a 2x4 between the engine and the jack. Then raise the jack.

Lurch's method is how the MC shop that changed my front tire did it. It works, is cheap, and easy to do.
