bike lift/ jack

My front fork is weeping. At times profusely,so I need to have it fixed. I need to take the forks off the bike ,but the front stand I have is of the short type--which support the front forks. I was looking at a bike lift I can get at the local Sears.............http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/produ...seBVCookie=Yes Anybody ever use one of these? I know they're better suited for cruisers and such, but I was hoping someone has had positive experience with one.

Yes, I just sold mine for $50 locally. Unless you're ready to remove all your exhaust pipes and do some wood blocking, this probably isn't the route to go.

Actually, Vash had a great jimmy-rig solution for not having the front stand. Put a couple of hooks into the ceiling of the garage on the rafters and use two ratchet straps to lift the bike from the triple tree or other major frame piece.

This wouldn't work with the setup I have here. Thanx for input.
