Looks like you got that lined up pretty much perfect. Awesome! Thanks for the write-up, I'm sure it will come in handy when I finally get to set mine up.

Are there more bike specific instructions than the picture below (not the general stand assembly instructions).

Is the horizontal rod adjustment just trial and error or is there a recommended starting length.

I have messed around with the stand a bit. I am able to lift the bike if I lower the handle (raising the mechanism) so that it will meet with the adaptor. However, the front tire is slightly touching the ground still.

I outlined the steps that I took to adjust the tilt of the bike a couple posts back in this thread. But for the most part it is trial and error. Use the supplied photo to guess the ammout of adjustment needed and compare it to what your stand looks like. If you want to post a picture of what your stand looks like now I can help point you in the right direction for adjustments.

I believe edge's bike is a std striple and creative's is "R", correct? Is it possible that the difficulty with Creative's setup is the slight difference in height between the two bikes? If the standard ends up being right at the top of the adjustment range then perhaps there is no way to get the "R" to slide right in without first raising the mechanism a little? Just a thought.

Thanks edgedweapon88, I was just curious because I thought I read about "refer to the recommended horizontal rod length".

It works, I just have to wiggle it in and out to fit.

Bira - I didn't even think of that. I didn't realize they would be different heights.

Bira - You are correct, I have a STD Street. I did not think about the difference in adjustment between the STD and R model but that is certainly a possibility. However, I still have to raise the stand up just a bit for it to interface with the bushing correctly.

Creative - Glad to hear you got yours working! I also have to wiggle my stand sometimes if I dont have it lined up just right.

What part of VA are you in? Im your neighbor in MD but often visit your wonderful state!

Nice job on the report Edge - appreciated!

There are likely differences between the R & regular models just down to the suspension differences - or even pre-load settings between bikes - this will effectively change the angle between the lifting points and make for subtle differences between them.

Perhaps you can just add the dimension for spacing of the rod that you ended up, as starting reference for others.
The selected hole and the length of the rod effectively fix the height and angle of the pins
(again there may be subtle differences but this would be a good starting point)

Finally got mine put together today. Not too bad of an exercise. It is clear, however, that the handle definitely has to be "operated" prior to engaging the sleeve on my bike as well. Mine is a STD but with the CBR shock, it does sit slightly higher. No biggie, works real well and front wheel is about 3/4" - 1" off the ground and the rear quit a bit more than that. However, looking at the exhaust under the bike, it looks pretty much level.
