Has anyone encountered the issue of when lifting their bike (08+) with a rear stand that it doesn't lift the bike high enough?

My issue is that I use tire warmers and when putting them on the warmers scrape the ground since the bike is not lifted high enough. My original thought was that my stand sucks, but then I realized that this stands lifts other bikes (CBR and GSXR) high enough for this issue not to occur.

Is this a common problem with the R6? Would getting specific spools remedy this issue?

It's just the stand. My buddy uses a Horrible Freight stand and his wheel is barely off the ground. My Pitbull stand has plenty of clearance.

Like the others have said, if you want the best stands go Pitbull. They're other cheaper options such as Trex, MJmoto, and Woodcraft which seem to all do well. I personally have the T rex stands and bought them over 3 years ago and they are still holding up well
