Hi fellow triumph nuts
« on: June 25, 2019, 12:10:26 AM »
I've just bought a 2017 XRT does any one know of a good front wheel stand  so I can take the wheel out?  :001:

Hi  :400: to the forum,  I use an old wooden railway sleeper cut to size and a bit of carpet stuck to it. Positioned under the sump area :031:

Hi, I put heavy toolbox on topbox baseplate, with a few old lead weights for good measure.

Thanks guys  :001: :821: I did think of that but was wondering if anyone had tried some of the stands available as I have a speed triple as well hoping to find something that would do both just a bit worried about the height and the weight of the explorer  :005:

Welcome to the gang.
I let my tyre dealer worry about how to get the wheels on and off.  (I usually help him by leaning on the topbox until he gets a jack under the front.)
My dealer charges fair prices for tyres, doesn't charge for fitting, and will fit brake pads if needed, for just the cost of the pads.  Why would I not use him?

I also have another guy who services the bike.  I keep the screen and headlights clean.  That's my bike job.  (And I occasionally wash mud off the exhaust.)

Welcome to the forum.   :031:

I have a bunch of different bulldog stands.  You are welcome to stop by and use one...  :164:
