You mean a Pit Bull stand, right? You'll need one with a pin appropriate for an R6.

Lockhart Phillips makes one, too. But I don't have it yet. What are you trying to do?

try to strightin my wheel, and check the lower tripple clamp.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

I have a Woodcraft with a pin for a ZX-9R and a pin for a FZR-400, if that will work and you feel like driving to Chicago, you're welcome to use it.

I stick a 1/2" steel rod through the hollow swingarm pivot, put jackstands under it, and then lower the bike off the swingarm stand onto the jackstands. Now the rear is suspended off the ground. Just have someone lean on the passenger seat and the front will come up (or jack under the bike since the jackstands will keep it balanced better than a swingarm stand) If removing the front wheel put blocks of wood under the forks before your assistant lets the front end down.

If you want to stop by I'll be home tomorrow. I know most people don't have steel rods laying around.

I have the type of stand your looking for.... but again... you'll need the correct pin that fits in the triple tree for the R6. I have one that fits the R1, but not the R6.

I don't know if you should be talking about inserting things into your fork hole. There are children here.
