2016 F4RR front wheel removal

Hi Looking for some advice,

I noticed my front tyre deflated while the bike parked in the garage. Ideally I want to remove the front wheel myself to take for repair/replacement. Problem is my front wheel stand/lift has the pin type for hollow bottom type yoke, which I have had for previous bikes. I don't want to spend 350 on the dedicated MV stand and wonder if it is safe to lift the bike from the top yoke using a block and tackle with proper fabric covered slings from my garage roof timbers, obviously with the rear stand in place to keep her steady.

I considered using a hydraulic jack on the sump but nervous about the weight plus the added work in removing the exhaust headers.

Any advice much appreciated

I have lifted many bikes using both methods you describe.

The front yoke lift via block and tackle is more stable. You could run the straps though frame members.

You can also use a conventional front fork stand placing the lifting lugs under the brake caliper mounts.

Many thanks Silentservice,

So no danger of the weight ripping out the top yoke from the fork legs plus other damage then?

I thought of your option 2 but my Tuono rear stand is too wide for the calliper mounts but could adapt I suppose, I am not really a tight wotsit but all these stands take up so much room!

Thanks again, I think I will go ahead with the top yoke idea

If you are lifting only the front end, you will have less than 200 lbm on the lifting area.

Thank you, Yes my thought exactly plus a bit more as the rear end would be jacked a couple of inches

You can do the math with the included angle, but as long as the rear is supported your suspended load will be afr less than 200 lbm.
