You are correct, your craftsman jack will not work for the 919. I had the same problem.
That rear stand will work if you have spools attached to your swingarm, otherwise you would need one that sits under the swingarm like this...

And if you want to raise the front and ever intend on removing the forks you will need a triple tree stand like this...

Prior to getting a center stand, I've used the rear stand (under the swingarm style) as well as a front stand (indexing into the end of the fork tubes). When doing fork work, I lifted the front with the front stand, placed automotive jackstands under the frame sliders and removed the front stand such that the front end was off the ground completely.

Many have hung their bikes, using ratchet straps, etc. from rafters, A-frame ladders, cherry pickers, etc.

Is this safe for the bike? from the handlebars? where would I attach the strap in the front?

I hung my 929RR front end from the rafters using a come along. I used the paddle swing arm stand to lift the rear to service my chains on my Superhawk 996, 929RR and ZX10R. Never had a problem doing so.

I don't think the Phobman Centerstand is being produced anymore? If not, has anyone documented the specifications in order to do a diy fabrication? I don't want to take away from Phobman but if he is not still fabricating them have they been reverse engineered?

Thanks

I can tell you the measurements for this one, if you're interested - the pin runs thru the centerstand mounts on the bike, and you rock it back into place. It's made out of 25mm box-section.

K1w1Boy, that would be awesome. If I cut the material I can have a friend help me weld it. Does it work well for you?

I was about to go down this same road of remaking one with the help of a buddy's metal shop but was able to find a used Phobman stand (and correct he no longer makes them)

Good luck with the project and post your results! I bet you'd be able to sell some as well if you're so inclined.

This is similar to what I had for years:


Mine was this model from Lockhart Phillips. The swing arm paddles are missing here:

This will cost you a cupla hundred bucks delivered, but it's very well made (I have one) and you will always be able to get the bike up, no matter where you are.

Yes - have had it for ages. I now have swingarm spools and use a paddock stand, but this one is great.

The angle of the supports is 15deg from the vertical, and the pin is around 16mm diameter - everything else should be in the pics, but ask away for anything that's unclear.

I bought one of these right before the Ukraine war started. They are made in the Ukraine. I'm not sure what their status is at this moment.

What is the wall thickness of the square tube?
Where would I source the pin?

Thanks

Dude, I live on the other side of the world from you! You're looking for a piece of 16mm rod or possibly steel pipe or even a decent-sized construction bolt - where would you usually begin to look for something like that? A machine shop? Plumbing supplies? A hardware store? Maybe the place you source the box section will have something you could use...

Yep, that'll do it.

When you get the bike on the stand, slip a piece of timber or something as a chock under the rear wheel to hold it in place before you start work - it means you don't have to manage the weight of the wheel and swingarm while you're removing / installing the shock.
