Does anyone know if a Pitbull headlift stand (raising from the hole in the triple tree) will fit under the fairing of an F model?
A quick search shows our naked owners have had success with them using the #5
pin, but the clearance on an F model is borderline. Just wondering if the top horizontal arm of the stand will get under the nose of the bike.
I love the Pitbull products, but I'm not sold on the "ABS friendly" fork stand version. Please tell me if I'm wrong.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a Pit Bull front stand with a #5
pin (indicated for our bike), but it is too tight a fit. The arm of the stand hits the front fender. So I recently contacted Pit Bull, here is the reply email from the Pit Bull GM:
"I checked the Katana at the trade show(they did not have the í20 GSX-S 1000 in yet so they didnít bring one at all) and according to Suzuki the Katana shares components with the GSX-S 1000. I was able to get the #5
pin in the hole of the Katana but it did rub the fender just a bit as I was getting the pin in place. For that reason, I notated the #6
pin for the Katana as it is angled and easier to put into place. That might be the route to go with the GSX-S 1000 models as well. On the very first GSX-S 1000 that I fit, I found the #5
to be a better fit Ė but itís possible that changed over time or may have even been a pre-production Suzuki(since I measured it at a tradeshow when they had not fully released it yet).

I informed George that the GSXS-1000 is not offered in the U.S. for 2020, but is basically the same bike. How cool that the General Manager of Pit Bull remembered my question and followed up. He is sending me a #6
pin at no charge. So #6
pin it is. And hats of to Pit Bull for excellent customer service!
