Does anyone living near Hanford have a bike stand I can borrow to change out sprocket and chain. Not sure if it makes a difference but I have a 97 600F3. Thanks

Could always try the tow straps hanging from the rafters trick.

That is all and well but I have no rafters and hoisting just the rear seems unstable considering. Hell I can use a floor jack but still need to borrow a front stand for stability.

Is your rear stand a swing arm or rear spool.

I have a pit bull stand that you can use. I work in the Hanford area so I can meet up with you if you like. My stand will work with spools and just using the swing arm.

I have one that is swingarm, the rest are all spool. I don't really trust it though.

ok I still need a stand. I tried the hoist thing yu guys mentioned great idea:idea: bad results.:weirdface: I do not have the rafters needed to support it. Not to include the damn bike wanted to sway on me and I am only one person. LOL

Bottom line need a stand.

Thanks for the offer dynge. I ended up using a tow strap and the garage door support beam to raise it and turned out great. Seems to be the norm for us backyard mechanics. LOL
