Recommendations on "head-lift" front stand

I tried searching but using several search terms I couldn't find what I'm looking for.

I want a front stand that lifts from the hole in the bottom of the upper triple clamp. I see that Pitbull sells an adapter for its head lift front stands so I'm assuming they work. Can any owners please confirm?

I already have a head-lift front stand that I used on my Crossplane R1 but none of the included 5 adapters is a close fit, and then when I tried to fit it the upper frame of the stand hit the nose fairing before it was even in the lifting position.

I like Pitbull, but if there are other options aside from the Bursig stand that requires fairing cutting, I would appreciate it.

Hey Jeff,

I just got a set of Pit Bulls in the mail today. The front stand does clear the fairing, but it's a tight fit to get the stand under there. Definitely cover the front fender with a cloth before you wiggle the stand in there. A #28 pin is what I'm using. Both stands are made of steel and are quite solid and pretty heavy (a million times better than the crappy Lockhart Phillips stands I've used in the past).

Here's some shots of them in use.

Thanks from jock39racer, JeffD, Toys1 and 2 others

Thanks Chrissa,

I forgot about the head stand as my attention was focussed on your massive air compressor in the back ground. That is impressive.
