Best front stand for the F4. What say you?

Okay, there are lots of threads about the best rear stand. Looks like the PitBull wins that prize. How about the best front stand.

Well built...easy to use...allows space for maintenance...wheel change...looks cool...

What matters, what works?

I've got a Baxley Sport Chock for both of my bikes and I love them:

All you do is ride into it and then get off the bike - really easy and it works well in tight spaces. I also used it in the back of the pickup truck when I needed to haul the bike home when I bought it. Worth the money.

Baxley chocks are great. I have the red sport model. Love it. However, it isn't what I'm looking for.

What do you guys use for a front stand so you can work on the front end of your F4? Is there a front stand that allows wheel changes?

Don't know if you're looking for a SHOP stand or a TRACK stand but for the shop I use the stock MV stand on the rear and I use my Pit Bull rear stand (with custom pin) to raise the front of my Brute. Then I hang the bike from the rafters with soft straps. Gets EVERYTHING out of the way (including the stand) for front end work. Do a search. Best $20 front stand available anywhere. YMMV

Can only advise on UK options..

Try this site, not sure if they export...

http://www.worldofpower.co.uk/acatal...ck_Stands.html

scroll down to...

Sealey, FPS2, Adjustable Front Wheel Stand (rubber pad type)
Sealey, FPS1, Universal Front Wheel Stand (spigot type to fork leg recess)
Sealey, FPS2, Adjustable Front Wheel Stand (adjsutable spigot)

I also contacted Harris Performance
https://www.harris-performance.com/w.../frameset2.htm

select paddock stands...

I like their under fork spigot type. You will need to confirm the dimension between fork leg centres when you order.

Finally - emoto
http://www.emotouk.com/mvagusta/frontstand.htm
for the under yoke type which has the advantage of allowing forks to be removed.

I would go for the Harris option personally.

Hope this helps,
Tont.

MV Corse stand is what I have and I think is exactly what your looking for. Light weight, easy to use and does not block access to the wheel or the brakes.
