I took a look at the thread down the page a bit and I too have only found them for about $215 which seems excessive. I am in need of some kind of stand to change the front tire, forks, and then I need to get to the shock (don't think I need stand do I?) as well as regular chain maintenance.
You could use 2 jack stands and a piece of rebar through the center stand mount points. Then use a hydraulic jack with a piece of 2x4 going across the headers to get the front up. If you can find a Phobman stand, snag it. They were around $90 new when they were being made.
no worries, I have been super busy with classes starting back up. I'll wait, I might be getting a phobman stand from another member. Is there a thread with what they look like? I don't understand what they are
