NTB (borrow) steering stem front stand - March 30, 2009, 01:53 PM

anyone have one I can borrow maybe Fri or Sat? I need to get my shoes off and take them to get new soles put on. And the front stand I have goes up in the bottom of the fork tube..so torquing the pinch bolts back down may pose a problem..will it? If not, I'll use mine.

However, I'll still need the steering stem stand to get my forks off so I can take them to get the fork oil changed. Or if anyone would like to lend a hand -that would be cool too...I can supply work space, tools, supplies, food and drinks and a lil bit of chedda if applicable.

I'd also need the stand for a while or again at a later date when the forks and triples go to paint.

99 GSXR 750 <---- if needed

please advise, TIA,

Don't need a triple stand to just remove and reinstall the front wheel.

floor jack and a piece of wood under your headers will do the trick....

Yes, your front stand will work fine. No need for a stem stand for just taking the wheels off.

what kinda front stand is it? if the bikes sits on the bottom of the forks with the stand you probably wont be able to get to the nut to loosen the front axel thats why I say use a floor jack and some wood under your headers... also I got a floor jack it you need it but its very ghetto Im warning u now... lol

Fiend...the front stand i have, as aforementioned, goes up in the bottom of the fork tubes with something that looks like a nipple with a slight flare at the end so it doesn't go all the way up in the tube, obviously.

I'll have to look today, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't get in the way of the axle nut.

can i use your ghetto contraption to take the forks off?? does your contraption take 2 or more ppl?...sounds wobbly... if so...would you mind staying?

TRIPLE stand...damn Nudist thanks...i was getting a headache tryna remember the name of that thing

Careful supporting the weight of your bike on the headers.... the motorcycle jacks are designed for bike with cradle frames.
