Front End Lift For Rally Pro

961 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  xtypeinct
I was wondering what folks have used for a front end lift for the Rally Pro.

I have both front and rear Vortex Paddock stands. Rear works fine. But the front, with the the 21” wheel and 230mm of travel, the front stand isn’t tall enough to fit the pin. Trying to avoid building a set of lift blocks (2X8’s and 2X4’s etc…) but if that’s the only way, I will go that route. I have an “A” frame that I can hang the front from, but it takes up too much room.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Why do you need a front lift? Just put it on the center stand and place a car jack under the sump gard to keep it from falling upwords.

This is how I did it when I removed both wheels to change the tires.

I would say yes.
First you mount the front wheel as you can rack the bike backwards (you simply lift the bike from the forks). You have freedom of movement. It's not a struggle as the bike is almost balanced. After that you remove the car jack and the bike will tend to sit on the front wheel.
You move to the rear side.
I placed Conti TKC 80 which have way thicker thread than the standard tire.
I don't see why you would have problems with other type of wheels/tires either.
