PITTBULL Hybrid Headlift Stand
« on: May 16, 2017, 10:10:50 pm »
I believe I need this.
Pitbull Hybrid Headlift Stand with #27 (1.102, 28mm) pin.
Allows both wheels/tires to be removed with bike on centerstand.
Allows forks to be removed.

Does anyone know if there is sufficient clearance for the forks to be removed, clear the lower triple clamp with this stand in place and bike on centerstand?

Thanks in advance!!

Yes the fork tube will drop out of the triple tree when using this stand.
I have an almost new one that I am looking to sell.

I have that same stand for my R1 and track bike, but don't  have the pin for the concours. Nothing a heavy tool box, center stand and tie downs couldn't handle. Forks removed easily. The stand is great, but it is extremely hard to get the bike up. It is a little hard to get the R1 up and it only weighs in at 425lbs.

I appreciate your input! Thanks.

I'm opting out of my "murphy's law" phenomenon by acquiring this!

You're referring to the over-center leverage lifting the front?

You know, I'll have to check tomorrow and see if there is enough room under the concours to fit the stand without having to take anything off. I'll get back to you.

I can say yes to this question. This stand will slide right into place and lift the bike

Received the Pitbull Hybrid Head Lift with the #27 pin for a C14.
It is a quality product but the Head Lift does not have enough adjustment to allow lifting of the front end without lifting the bike off the centerstand. This is not desireable!
I have to place a 3/4" piece of plywood under the centerstand. The Pitbull now has the room to lift the front end and the rear wheel will just touch the floor.
If I remove the rear wheel while on the centerstand, the Pitbull can tilt the bike back enough on the centerstand to lift the front safely, without the 3/4" plywood.
Pitbull has some admitted "trial and error"fitting their hybrid head lift to the Concours.
Pitbull designed the head lift to work in conjunction with their rear stand.
Regardless, I can remove both wheels and the forks simultaneously with this headlift and that was my intention all along.

So long Bridgestones!

Pittbull, definitely a good purchase

I already have both front and rear pitbulls, but not the #27pin adaptor for the C14.

I've been using the under fork lifts on the front stand previously, and ran into some problems with
axle re-insertion / alignment.  I'll now be using the head-pin methodology for future wheel removals.

This has been a great thread.  Thanks for the info, and proving that it works!

I'll be ordering the pin next time I need to swap tires or service the front end.
