Front stand?

So I have an older pit bull fork stand that Iíve been using on the 1299s but have been having issues with it not lifting the front reliably. It just doesnít seem to fit under the legs with the radial bottoms very well and if the ground is uneven the bike will slip off the stand. So I am looking to replace it. Iíve been happy with the pit bull products but have found them to be pretty heavy and would prefer a lighter stand. Do you guys have any recommendations? I run tire warmers for track days so it needs to be easy to use/ not cumbersome. Otherwise can be a fork lift or steering stem lift stand.

why dont you get or add Pitbull Triple lifter.

I have a Pitbull stand can do both and recently, like you, it was not stable because of different forks, it even dropped on to wheel once because of uneven pavement. I now only lift with triple pin.

My front is an older model and wonít support the hybrid front. I did watch pit bulls video and they recommended lifting from the radial mount instead of directly under the leg. I will try that but I am leaning towards the woodcraft headlift stand.

Have you considered a Bursig? Not very light, but it's on wheels and lifts the bike off the ground in seconds. If I'm not on my bike, it's usually in the air on the Bursig.

I Love my Moto D front Stand. I pop the Little front plug out by the horn, put the pin in and lift her right up

I second the Moto D stands. I have front & rear; they do exactly as advertised.
Thanks from jackgraves

I have been in the same situation for last 15 years have had shit loads of Pit Bull stands and finally made the switch over to all the Lightech stands.

The DP stand is perfect for simple use at the track.
If you want something a little nicer which allows fork removal then a hand made
Gee Tech stand is the way to go.
