Center stand/lift stands

Hey everyone...I need to get new front and rear tires and would prefer to take the wheels off the bike myself, then take it to the shop and have them dismount and mount the new tires to help save some money.

Is there a center stand that will balance the bike so I can take both the front and rear tires off WITH OUT the bike falling forward or backward?

If there isn't a center stand, what about some lift stands?

Thanks,
Cris P.

Where can I order one and do I need a lift to support the bike like the one you have in the pictures?

Send a PM to "Phobman", he's a WT member that makes these stands. I have one, works great, better than my wheel stand by far. If you want the front wheel off the ground you will need a support under the engine as in the pic.

That stand looks good. So its ok to put a jack under the pipes like that? They wont bend?

You're not lifting the bike with the pipes, only pivoting it on the axis point of the stand to lift the front wheel. Use a piece of wood between the pipes and jack and you'll be fine.
