Shopping for a front stand for my Gen2. I keep hearing and have seen at the shop that many front stands don't work well with Gen2 plastics.

Which stand and pin size do I need to not put pressure on the nose?

I know I've posted it a 100 times, but go with this, you won't be sorry.

If you need a paddock stand for tire warmers or something, then just
get a cheap under the fork kind. For working on bikes this is great, gives
clear access while working on bike front and rear at same time. remove rear shock, forks, whole front end to replace stem bearings, etc.

I've used the crap out of mine on multiple bikes, its strong and still looks
like new.

How does it attach to the bike? I'm seeing a $275 price tag, which seems cheap for this type of system.

Swing arm pivot bolt. I've got the exact set up pictured above and love it! Used it on a 500lb+ZRX and works great on my Gen2 as well. Highly recommended!

I've got a Woodcraft pin style front stand that worked properly on every bike I've owned except the ZX10 as the arm that holds the pin rests under the nose and the pin doesn't take the weight.

So Woodcraft doesn't work, any other suggestions for a front stand?

I went Pitbull simply because thats what i have for the rear so i figured, bite the bullet once, buy it for life and be done. But yea even though i havent messed with it much it wanted to push up on the underside of the nose fairing too much so i just took that off along with the front fender since im changing tires soon anyway. I only plan on using the front stand when i do maintenance anyway so, its not really a issue for me to take plastics off. Thats my story lol.
