Pit bull stands

So, my first tire change was this weekend (on the R6). I have a forward handle pit bull stand. I realized the stand cups for the spools cover the axle. Had to loosen off the stand, insert tire, then tighten off the stand. That's ridiculous. Anyone else have the issue? I suppose I can cut the cups, but then stability might be compromised.

Pit Bull is awesome, so this surprised me. Anyone have any other solutions?

Another positive reason to use the headlift stands over the forklift.

Re: Pit bull stands

Well, I feel a little better as I'm not the only one.

There is no easy solution, beyond what you already did, unless you want to either get a rear lift pit or new axle blocks w/ sliders.

The axle blocks are fairly common, I have r&g for example. Driven also makes a set that the STG was pimpin for some time as well.

Odd...I've never seen that problem.

Re: Pit bull stands

Agree with Melka. Need pics. I suspect you may have it positioned wrong. Doing this for as long as I can remember and never seen you have to take bike off the stand to tighten anything.

Re: Pit bull stands

I reversed the cups, but it didn't matter. There's only one way it can be positioned, on the spools. I'll try to get a pic.; thanks for the responses.

in this case, ya just need to space that nut out some as you point out .. i don't know what brand of adjusters those are, but they are not stock, and are likely causing the problem the OP has. With stock axle adjuster blocks, there should not be a problem.

not sure if this will help, but i reverse my axle. I want the axle to push in on the brake side.
