Anybody using Venom front stands?

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?



Thanks

1) Don’t know.

2) first step in front wheel removal is to remove wheel sensor. I use a piece of scrap wire to hold it back out of the way.

I have a venom and a pit bull stand. Both work fine on my naked 2016.

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.

Garage
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.

I bought a pit bull pin. I'll have to double check and make sure that I have the right one.

Slower and Slower,
OMG! I'm an idiot. We are on GSX-S list and I told the guy to get a pin...for a GSX-S.
But going back to Post #1 , I can see he was asking about lifting an FZ-07. Doh!

I removed my earlier post to avoid any confusion.
BUT...checking Pit Bull's website, they are showing it to be a #33 pin
(see attached pic)

Hey Wojo,
Disregard my earlier post (since deleted). I thought we were talking about a GSX-S.
According to Pit Bull's website, the FZ-07 needs a #33 front pin
Hopefully that's what you have.
