I have two questions. I'm feeling a little stupid because I never had issues lifting the front of my FZ07. I bought the correct Pitbull pin. It doesn't feel like the angle is right. When I lift I'm making contact with the headlight housing. I was trying lift the bike tonight so that I could get new tires tomorrow morning. I got frustrated and quit for the night.
1) Does the Venom head stand work?
2) I also have the front fork pads. Can I lift from the bottom of the forks without messing up the ABS sensors?
Also, my venom head lift came with five pins, one of which works perfect on my gsxs1000. The only bike I have that it doesn’t work on, is my RC51. It has a hole through the head as big around as your thumb. Plus, the fender to fairing clearance is virtually non existent. The pit bull lift will handle it, plus I have a venom lift that picks up under the fork legs like you mentioned that I use on the RC51 for washing the bike. It too works on my gsxs1000.
Can't speak to your specific stand I'm sure they're all mostly the same. With mine I have to really make sure the pin is seated which means tugging the wire loom that runs under the head to one side. I have popped the bottom of the headlight out of the bracket once when I was less than careful. Luckily it didn't break.
Thanks. I'll try it again when I'm not agitated. I'll put a towel over the front fender so that I'm not worried about scratching anything. I was going to go back out there today but it's 100 degrees and humid in my garage.
