You can try to lift the front of the bike using a ratchet strap looped through the cash bars on each side and over a garage rafter, if you have a garage. If you have help, put the bike in gear, put the sidestand down, and pull the bike up and over to the ground to lever the front wheel off the floor using the sidestand as a fulcrum. Not fun, but Ive done it in the days before I had all my stands, jacks, and equipment. BE CAREFUL!
A rear stand with swingarm spools, and a front stand with the ability to raise the bike via the steering stem woudnt be a waste of your money. I use Pitbulls. NEVER use a front stand without having the bike on a rear stand.
