Hey guys,

How do you jack up the front to change the front tire? I read that using a rear stand and jacking up the front using a car jack works.

What are the jacking points on the bike? Other users mentioned it's safe to jack up from the oil pan... Is this the case?

Thanks!

I have a front stand that I use. It lifts under the forks and if you position it just right you retain access to the front axle bolt. Not sure if there is a truly safe jacking point under the bike (?)

You can try setting a A shape ladder and lifting the front end with straps from the top triple.

Most folks have a front stand. My stand will lift both the front and rear if need be You can usually find them on EBAY.. I do not mean at the same time, but indvidually. On the other hand, some folks have stands that will lift the whole bike at one time.
