F4 2010 1000R Front wheel centre hole diameter

Anyone know what the hole diameter is please?

I need to buy a bar to go through so I can use my existing paddock stand for the front (I bought a new stand for the rear).

I'm assuming aluminium is the way to go to prevent damage etc?

I don't collect my bike until the weekend, so trying to get paddock stands etc sorted before the big day !

Thanks

Welcome mate.
I don't know why you'd want a bar going through the front axle, NOBODY does that, simply because that would be useless and prevent you from removing the front wheel.
Have a look in the Tools section for more reference to stands, but in general any front stand would work which engages under the front brake caliper brackets or axles.

Many thanks for your reply

Actually, it was the guys at the MV Agusta dealership who suggested I do that lol

I'm not really bothered about removing the front wheel etc, I'm more interested in having it on the stand whilst cleaning/detailing etc. If the front wheel needs to come off then I will take it to a garage as I don't trust myself lol

Where are you on this little planet man ?
Are you sure they meant a rod through the axle stand, and not just a "front axle" stand ?

I think, Dons, the issue is fork torque.

When fork stands are used and there is no axle, then the folks can skew and cause a fall.
That is prevented by re-installing the axle in the forks to provide rigidity when the wheel is removed.

I know a few "skewed" folks too Chuck !

OP get yourself a Bursig stand... I wouldn't be without mine..The bike practically lives on it with both wheels off the ground.

ps Dominos have lost the sponsorship and I have adjusted the chain...

Apologies guys, new to all this.

The MV Agusta dealership actually took me into the workshop & showed me where they put an aluminium bar through the centre of the wheel. They actually do it in their workshop. They did explain that I wouldn't be able to remove the wheel etc, but just for cleaning/detailing etc it would be fine.

+1 on that. Love it. If you go that route add the wheels.

I hear you big fella.
The OP distinctly said he didn't want to remove the front wheel Chuck, and even then, install the rear stand first. Then if you use a regular fork stand, re-install the axle after you've removed the wheel, no problems.
NEVER use regular a front axle stand by itself.
