DL650 front wheel removal
Time for new tires and brake pads. I need to get the front wheel off the ground. I have a pit bull rear stand and a good floor jack.
The manual states on page 7-38 #5 to "place an accessory service stand or equivalent under the swing arm to help stabize the rear end", before #6 which is to jack up the bike under the motor.
Issue: My rear stand takes the rear wheel off the ground. I cannot imagine I should do that. It seems the weight needs to be on the rear wheel and side stand, correct?
Maybe the idea of the "service stand" is to keep the rear wheel from moving left or right while on the ground?
