    Ninja 250 Wheel removal - tire change

    I am looking for bike stands front and back...CT is too big, i have them already

    I was looking on the web page at Princess Auto and they have a set for 49.99 each front and back

    Not sure if they are too wide as well, any suggestions, its a pretty light bike so i dont need em very skookum.

    thank all

    The Canadian tire one are fine,
    Put them on their sides and put you weight on it, They will bend and will fit the bike.

    For the front ct stand, there is an easy mod to make it more user friendly.

    Put a jack under the motor and put the front forks on the ground.

    Put the rear wheel in first, jack the engine again and put the front in.

    Don't waste $100 of your savings buying stands.

    Nice find, let me know how the transaction goes, looks like a company based in Canada?

    Yeah that seems to be the safest way to do it. Where did you learn that, wheel removal for dummies? What could possibly go wrong.

    They have very decent stands (not cambodian tire ones) at Carter Honda, $79.99. Went to look at lunchtime. I might pickup the front one.

    Buying something on Amazon, use my affiliate links to support my motorcycle racing. Every little bit counts. WMRC 250 Class FTW - #702, MUCHO GRACIAS!
