What size rod does everyone use to keep the front of the bike lifted on jackstands while tearing apart the front end. It goes thru the empty hole on the bottom of the engine.

Also where is the best place to buy this metal rod and how long should it be???


The front end will be off for a while while I rebuild some forks so how sturdy is this method???



No I dont have rafters in my garage to hang the bike from!!! I know there would be that suggestion in the first couple of posts. And I dont have a headstock front stand, mine lifts from the forks.

Personally, I haven't heard of this method, but I'd still recommend a front stand to lift from the lower triple. Can't beat the value, plus when I have the bike parked for a while, I like the load to be taken off of the forks.

Either way, here's a *bump* for ya
