Frt tire stand question?? (pic)

Has anyone bought one of these from MV part#800095808? Was thinking about getting one for my F4. But didn't know how sturdy they are compared to the other stand that MV sells. Eventually I will be changing the lower fork bottoms to radial mounts. Thats why I consider this one over the standard style lift.

does that fit under the triple tree? the other stand is sturdy....but it rests on the caliper brackets making your changing out job a hassle

Yeah thats what they are telling me. I guess there is a small hole under lower triple tree. The hole isn't like Jap bikes large and centered. Theirs is small and near backside toward motor. Pitbull said that there wasn't a hole in the the lower triple. The stand is even in MV workshop manual book.

I use to have one of thise for my old bike. It's a good chance that you can damage the front fender when you're mouting the bike. Go with a pit bull stand. They work great...

I've got roughly the same stand (got it from Red Racing, I think). Definitely sturdy, and definitely works. Have taken the front wheel off a few times without any problems. Here are a couple of pictures - click on them to blow 'em up.

I have and use that stand all the time. Pit bull is unusable without cobbling together something that keeps the forks from twisting off the stand/dropping and then you are left with difficulty servicing wheel or brakes.

Works great. Race teams use the same.

Yep, I've also got the same stand (bought from Red Racing in Italy). I use it all the time for removing front wheel, etc and it is very sturdy. I see you have the 1000 which if I am not mistaken runs 120/70 front tyre from stock. For the 750 brigade who have switched to a 120/70 from 120/65 and use tyre warmers for track days we have to be just that little bit more careful when inserting/removing the stand so as not to mark our shiny CF fender. Reason is that in order to run 120/70 and tyre warmers we have to raise front fender slightly which reduces the clearance above the fender where the front stand is inserted. But like I said not too much of a problem just takes a couple minutes more to use the stand.

OK - lame question, albeit somewhat related, how do you guys get the bike up on the rear stand when by yourselves, what is the trick?

Stock stand? Not that bad really.

Insert the stand pin into the axle, use the leverage of the stand's base to bring the bike upright, and then just pull the bike back upon the stand using the vertical supports on the stand. I actually don't touch the bike itself at all using this manner. Never had a problem at all, and I'm a bit of a worry-wart.

To take it off, all I do is firmly grab the bike by the handlebars and simply push the bike forward and off the stand's base.
