Hi!

Since some weeks i own a Tesi 3D. Very Happy
I'm looking for a front stand which gives me the possibility to remove the front wheel.
Any recommendations?

Thanks, Franz

Welcome to the forum Franz. Would love to see a pic or two of your Tesi, in fact pics are mandatory around here Wink

I'm no help with regard to the front stand other than to suggest a universal stand

Hi Franz,

I had the same problem with my tesi 3d, the location of the bobbins is so close to the alloy torque arms that any stand would interfer and cause damage, l couldnt find any stand that could do the job.
when l need access to front wheel l get a friend to lift front of bike and pop two axle stands under front of engine support plates. This will give great access to front end.

Nice pictures...and bikes, welcome to the Forum....sounds like the rear end....on DB5 and DB6...fitted with bobbins...but so close to the spindle nut that when on a stand using the bobbins you cant fit a hex socket on the spindle nut...Grrghhh..

I suppose on the front you could ride the bike onto a piece of wooden plank...put on sidestand....then position the axle stands appropriately...then simply role the bike off the piece of wood onto the stands???

You can use a standard rear stand like PitBull. There are two threaded holes on the front swing arm that you can attach stand spools. I used longer bolts and found aluminum sleeves that were the correct size. This will get the spools the correct distance from the swing arm. I raise the rear first and then the front. I took off the front wheel with no issues and the stand was not in the way.

I used Waggy's system the first time I took the front wheel off. It worked well also.
