I have a 1995 ZX-6R that I am going to be giving new life to. It was put out to pasture a while back and now is my latest project bike. My questions is about a good stand. Because I will be working on the entire front end, I was thinking about using a hydraulic motorcycle stand, but there's one problem. The fram on the bike doesn't go under the engine. The only thing under the engine is the exhaust and the oil pan. I have ben trying to figure out how to get the whole bike off the ground and can't figure out a good way.

Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

If you can weld or have a friend who can make up a fitting out of box section steel that will fit under the oil pan and between the pipes and sit it on top of a cheap trolley jack. As added security support the bike under the footpeg mounts and with the tank off a couple of tie-downs around the frame and hung from the garage roof. Getting a couple of scissor jacks from the wreckers I made a copy of the Kawasaki jack and my fitting slots into it.
