Finally, I found a shop that would charge 25 bucks to change one tire, however; if I bring in the wheels. I think it wont be difficult for me, however; I need some way of picking up the motorcycle.

1. What is the best/ most reasonably priced stand for this motorcycle? (anyone selling a stand, used or new, please let me know)
2. Is there any stand, that can be used to lift up front and back alternatively?
3. Also, is there any other way, that I can safely use as an alternative for now. Like wooden block, or bricks etc? (I would love to get a stand, however; I live in an appartment, and the only problem is keeping that stuff)

Thanks a lot for the input.

Slide a rod through the hollow swingarm pivot bolt and put the jackstands at the ends of the rod to support the bike.

I can't think of any safe way to keep the front off the ground without a stand. You could use straps and hang the triple from a beam, but most people don't have those in the garage.

Actually, soooner or later, I have to do my shocks as well :).. so I guess I might need front stand any way.. actually no.. I dont think if I take the shocks out, the front stand can work.. :|... right.. what do you guys do, if you need to work on shocks?
