Front tire stand question

Using a front tire stand like the venom, would I be able to remove the front tire?

Depends on which stand your referring to. If it is the head stand, yes.

This is a WoodCraft, with a fitting that fits into the steering head.

Never considered using a rear paddock stand for the front like that! Genius. Probably not as stable as a Head stand, but do-able.
I have a Head stand. Tip: The 500R nose (headlight) is lower than the steering stem. I use a 1/2" long socket 14mm or 17mm to "extend" the steering stem. It should work with most Head stands.

haha. no that is a front stand, not a rear stand... it has special rotating fittings to hold under the fork.

here is the rear stand with spools and dolly:

I use the same rotating L-prong as a rear stand (without spools). The sweet spot is just in front of the sprocket (and without touching the exhaust on the right side). Some cushion/felt on the prong plate to prevent scratching the swing arm.

here's a better look at the front stand's interface... i guess you could use the front as a rear stand but the rear paddle stand would not work in the front very well as it would allow the forks to slide out the back...

On a somewhat related note, are those bike lifts Harbor Freight sells any good? Can one be used to lift the bike or will the bottom fairing interfere? I had to replace my rear tire after 1 month of riding and the ordeal of patching, then riding to the dealer was a bit much. Not to mention the mounting and balancing cost. I could have saved about a hundred dollars if I could have changed the tire myself.

Just a general note. In order to lift the front, the rear should be supported first (or risk the bike tipping over).
Unless there is a full stand installed (F or X model), you'll (most likely) need 2 stands, 1 rear, 1 front.

The front Head stand allows the forks to be serviced.
