woozer Posted March 28, 2015 Share Posted March 28, 2015 My last paddock stand went with the last bike, and I figured I wouldn't need another since the FJ has a centerstand. But then I went to put on the reflective wheel stripes and was scratching my head how to get the front wheel off the ground? All you need are two auto-type jack stands. Put the bike on the center stand, and have a pal lean on the passenger seat to push the rear wheel down to the ground, thus lifting the front tire off the ground. Slip the edges of the jack stands under the bottom edges of the forks, and gently set the bike down. Both wheels should now be 1/2" or so off the ground and turn freely, the bike is super stable. Reverse steps to put it back down on the ground again. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
