ItsTracerTime Posted November 12, 2022 Share Posted November 12, 2022 The title is a little misleading, as I have spools and a rear stand for the bike (as well as the OEM center stand) but I can not figure out a STABLE and SAFE way to get the bike in the air to remove both wheels simultaneously. On spools, it barely lifts higher than the center stand puts it but if I flip the bits on the Pitbull stand around to the red pasta looking end, it lifts the center stand off the ground at the cost of some stability. I've come up with a few options that don't involve buying a $300 stand for the front. 1: I can try to put it on spools and then remove the rear, and then attempt to jack the bike under the oil pan (center stand up) so it pivots around the spools with no interference from the wheel hitting the ground. 2: Do the above but on the center stand instead of spools 3: Use my Craftsman jack/lift and shim the underside of the bike with random bits of wood to protect the exhaust, and then ratchet strap the bike in place on the lift to remove the wheels.. Is there a better way? It's miserably cold outside but I just bought new tires and don't want to freeze myself to death riding to get them changed.
