Getting around front stand?

I ordered up some hyperpro progressive springs and want to get them in ASAP. However im strapped for cash right now and cant afford a front/rear stand. My question is, is it possible to swap out one spring at a time? Probably have to have a buddy steady the bike and put a jack under the bike to relieve a bit of weight on hte front. Thoughts?

many of us have used a rafter and a strap to support the weight of the front in order to do fork work.
Others have creatively used a step ladder...or two...to suspend the bike.

I've used a ratchet strap around the triple clamp to a fixing point on the garage ceiling to hold the front off the ground while removing forks to do fork seals as I don't have a head lift stand and couldn't justify spending the $$$ for a 1 time use.

ok, so im thinking of removing the handle bar then either putting the handle bar clamp back on and strapping through the clamp or the triple tree. Would the handle bar clamp handle that kind of weight?

It should. But don't do more work than you have to. Simply looping a strap under the bar will suffice.

I like that idea, reminds me of



Doesn't the bike rock around as you're working on it?

Whilst it's not a welcome expense I outfitted myself with front (headstock) and rear (spindle) stands for about 110 all in. Front was one of these, cheap but strong enough, suitable pin for my Turismo was an extra but included in the price I paid. Rear is R&G and was sourced off of eBay complete with MV spindle. Whilst these aren't the best options in terms of ultimate quality and materials they work well for their intended purpose.

I have screwed two eye bolts into the ceiling of my garage into one of the beams. Then I do what Noel said. Soft straps under the frame and ratcheting straps to raise the bike.
