without a centerstand

Is there anyone out there that may know where to locate spindles and track stands to work on a 919 without a centerstand. i.e. change tires, sprockets, and chain. Any info on how or where to find stands or get around using them would be great.

Pit Bull makes good stands. Don't get spindle style stands, though, since the 919 doesn't have mounting points for spindles unless you're handy with a welding torch.

I've got both PitBull and centerstand. If I had to choose twix the 2, I'd go with the centerstand. Once on the centerstand, the bike is nearly balanced, so to get the front off the ground, just hook a tie down strap onto an overhead rafter.

that's a good idea but can you get both front and rear off the ground at the same time?

Does anyone know if the exhaust has to come off to put an Honda brand center stand on?

Yup... Unless you use the stand modified by MotoCycho.

With wheels and tires on, the front end held up by a tie down, yes both would be about an inch off the ground. If you need a little more room, you can put a board under the centerstand, but then you might need a buddy to help you get it up. Obviously with the rear wheel off, you'd have all kinds of room.

If modifying a Honda centerstand, or removing part of the exhaust doesn't set well with you, there is a German out fit that makes one that goes right on with no extra work. I saw it on a link that someone here posted, I just cant remember where right now...

Here's a link to a center stand that does not require removal of the exhaust system to install.

The Honda unit...

...is on my Christmas list. If, I get it, I'm going to mod it for easy installation as posted elsewhere by cutting the cross member. Easier than having the gf return the one she probably already has and mail ordering the Mo-Tech.

I made a stand for my California model that uses the center stand holes, and when your done changing tires or shocks you simply pull the pin and remove it. California models need to have the cannister removed!

I have made a lot of sportbike stands, but this one is specifically designed to fit the 919. I made it from 1"x2" 14swg square tubing. This stand works the same way a centerstand works. I'll take a picture tonight and see if I can figure out how to post it!

I have the centerstand on my bike... and it is what I use for general maintince.. for some things however I can see the need for a rearstnad and a frontstnd (like pictured) I have the rearstand simalar to the one in the picture except mine will also work with spools (its a pitbull) the bike spesific part of the frontstand is the pin that fits into the headstock of the bike. someone here I am sure would know which pin to get or you can look it up on bitbulls website http://www.pit-bull.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=23
(actualy I went and looked it up its the standard pin plus #1 adapter)
and personally I would get the forklift and converter version for 40 extra bones the combination of flexibility of use and garage space savings over winding up with 2 seperate stands would be hard to beat in my head

The problem with rear swingarm stands is that you cannot change your shock or take your swingarm off!

I have the SW-Motech centerstand on mine. No-mod, no exhuast removal. It takes about 15 minutes to install with the spring tool twistedthrottle sells.

Here is the maintenance center stand I made for my bike, Just pull the pin and it detaches so you can ride without the exta weight and annoyance of a permanent centerstand!

I made one similiar to that for my Hurricane. They work really nice. You can block up under the engine and tear the entire bike down, swingarm and front forks off, etc. Looks nice.

I need to bring the camera to work sometime... I'm an auto mechanic, and I use my side-post hoist at work to lift bike from the swing arm. Looks ridiculous, is a two person operation, but it gets the job done.

I would sell that stand for $60 plus UPS.
The only disadvantage it has is that you have to get on your hands and knees to fit it up before you deploy it!

Phob, I disagree with you assessment of the stock stand being heavy and annoying. But after seeing your very ingenious design, I can certainly see your point. Well done.

West, wouldn't a tie down strap to the rafter been a lot easier than the "block and jack" set up?

Yes it would, I have not gotten that far yet. One could also strap down the rear of the bike and pull the rear tire closer to the ground..
