I recently bought the Motorcycle Stand Set, that was mentioned on BCSB, at Canadian Tire. It's a nice set, the quality is good and the price was even better ($79.99 on sale).But.......I can't get the front stand to fit. The rear stand works just fine. They advice to put your bike on the rear stand first and than use the front stand. But, either way, in this order or the other way around, the front stand won't fit.
This is what I did: I adjusted the width of the stand to the front forks ánd adjusted the pins to the depth I could feel in the holes of the forks. The problem now is, the pins won't reach enough to catch the holes to be able to raise the bike. If I would make the pins longer, so they will reach, then the bike won't rest on the surface of the stand but only on the pins that are now touching the wheel axle. And that will damage the axle, right?
Does anybody have advice on what I'm missing or doing wrong? I have a 2000 R1.
