Needed to change my tires finally. I went 11,000miles on my stock qualifiers. The rear are down to the wires. I am getting Q2's wrapped on.

So I have a rear stand but don't have a front yet. I improvised by using my cherry picker LOL! :) just wanted to share for people that might need to improvise too.

:laugh nice. i hear ladders work as well. when you get a front stand, i'd recommend getting one that lifts the front from the steering stem. it's nice to have if you need to work on your suspension. it also gives you a little more room to work with.

edit: like this one, click me

I've done that but, the only downside is it's a little too wobbly. like it wants to fall on it's side.

just be careful.

I even have the same harbor freight hoist lol

Pussy. I just look at my bike and it raises itself and changes its tires :fact

HAHAHA I did that while changing the engine on my old CBR. Held the rear up with a trash can. :dunce:
I thought a trash can was a Gixxah-specific tool.:dunce:
