Front End Maintenance - April 19, 2009, 12:51 PM

So, I'm doing more and more of my own maintenance, and the next job I have is a front rotor replacement. I don't have any stands/lifts and I'm wondering what people think is the best set-up for this job and if there are any stand/lift recommendations. I ride a 95 Ninja zx9r.

do you have a car? Pull the fairing off, find a small piece of 2 X 4 and jack it up using your car jack by the header pipes using the kick stand as a fulcrum. Just loosen every thing you can with the bike on the ground.

get a triple tree stand, imagine how bad it would be if it fell off the jack with no front wheel on the bike, T-rex sells a very affordable set of rear, front and triple tree attachment for just over $100, well worth the investment

I should have mentioned that my way of doing maintenance without the proper stuff borders on ghetto, but works if you are very careful and have no stuff.

I have the proper stuff now...but way back when did not.
