Ninja 250r front tripple tree stand

Just an FYI, the standard tripple tree stand will not work on your 250r, in my case Pitbull brand. First, the lower tripple tree clam's hole is too small, smaller than your standard bike. I was able to make a temporary adapter to fit hole, but ran into the 2nd problem. Second, the standard tripple tree front stand is too long to pivot the bike up. I needed to adjust the forks so I ended up using a standard car jack, just to hold the bike lightly up in addition to a rear stand so I can lower the front forks about 5mm. BTW, there are 6 hex bolts just to hold the front fender. WTF???

I've been able to use a Lockhart Phillips front stand but the horn is right at the bottom of the steer tube so I took the horn loose to get it out of the way...

Come and play.. Come and play...
Forget about the movement...!
