so I get my 99 F4, but it needs a rear tire, fine. Found a great deal on some new pilot sports, thanks effenay.
So I get the tires, but now I gotta put them on, heres where the trouble starts, no center stand on a CBR, so no problem I got a bike jack from costco for Xmas, but no frame under the engine on a CBR. so we use a block of wood ( after I removed the fairing ). Now the bike sits level at least front and back, but unless I want to hold it up all day I need to strap it down. Problem #2 cheap tie downs that come with the cheap bike jack. all is fine until I remove the front axle, just get the front tire clear and the left side strap breaks and bike falls off jack and ( luckily lands on me, not the floor or my truck. ) yell for wife, she comes down and steadys the bike until I get the real straps out of my truck. Finish removing wheels and have tires swapped etc... Moral of the story,
I NEED A F*CKING SWINGARM STAND!!!!!!!!!!!
Question is what do I look for and where is the best place to buy it. I've also seen some the have flat mounts and some that have a "V" mount.... any info would be great and if someone has one for sale PM me please.
