    Last year I found a couple MotoStance stands on sale for around $55.





    If I only want to lift the front wheel a little for cleaning, I slide hitch pins into the hollow axle.


    When lifting the front, the back tire will just barely touch the ground, so I take the back tire off first when removing both, or place a thin piece of plywood under the centerstand. You can see the plywood under the centerstand in the first picture.

    Pit Bull is a popular stand.

    I use the standard model Pit Bull. I got it for the RS in about 2002, and have used it on all my bikes since, it worked great on the K1300S in conjunction with the centerstand. My track bike is currently up on it in the front and another in the rear as I prep for my first event with this bike.
