919 Factory Center Stand Question

How high does the Honda center stand lift the rear tire of a 919 off the ground? I'm curious if you could use that with a front stand and lift the whole bike up or if you're better off just using front and rear stands.

The centre stand won't lift up the rear as much as a typical rear race stand.
My guess is that race stand that lifts at from underneath the lower triple clamp (so you have good and easy R & R access to wheel/brakes/forks) will have the rear wheel no more than an inch or so off the ground if the centre stand is used for the rear lift and the front stand is then made to lift.
BUT there is a way to skin that cat.
Put a piece of 2x6 wood on the floor and get the centre stand to lift off that elevation. You may need some help doing that lift.
This will give you access to be able to R & R the swing arm too, should you want to be able to do that. If you already have a centre stand,

When I used my T-Rex front stand to lift the bike while also on the center stand it raised the front to the point where the bike tilted back so that the rear wheel was touching the ground and could not be turned or removed so I purchased a rear stand to go with the front for when I want both wheels off the ground.

DISCLAIMER - other brands of front stand may have different results.

I figured that would be the case. I don't have a centerstand, why I was curious how high it lifted. It will be cheaper for me to just get front and rear stands. I plan to get the kind that goes into the triple clamp.
