YES BUT....i think is a brilliant idea
I think it is possible damage to the parts involved, I'm not sure.Do the parts involved have side to side stability, or will something break if the bike is pushed.
YES. And that's why I think it's not really stable,the front wheel is on the floor hood, this is Just to lift the rear wheel
Your concern is justified, the facility is very unstable and dangerous.Do the parts involved have side to side stability
It seems to me that you can find an answer for the dimensions in LEN's response:anyone have any tips on the exact dimensions?
there is a little slot just big enough fo a piece of metal
something like 1/2'' by 2'' to slip into.
it's not a super tight fit but snug.
Those things are relatively cheap so I don't get why anyone would want to build a center stand from a jack lift.
Len looked for a narrower solution, the usual stand was wider than his solution. In DIY construction it also did not cost him money(0$).looks clean and is neater in the garage not leaning over on the kickstand.
looking at the regular stands-they are quite a bit wider than this
Yes, BUT not good foor CBR250R 2013uh... place the stand behind axle!
The thing is I live in an apt, so I don't have storage like most people, Also you can use Len's center stand as a base for doing front end work, by mounting it to a base and also strapping down the rear of the bike.I had a cheap stand for several years. It started bending and didn't hold the bike level or securely. This year I upgraded to a Pit Bull...expensive but well worth the money. The build quality is incredible.
