removing front wheel without a stand

Would a floor jack and a 2x4 under the frame work? I'd put it in gear of course, so it wouldn't roll back. Or would it be too unstable?

If you can afford an M3 then:

1) Can't you afford to buy the right equipment to work on your bike? or
2) Can't you afford to pay someone to work on it that knows what they're doing?

Screw that, I'll give you new stands, and throw in the bike that's sitting on them.

You link pink?

FYI, not sure if this causes issues, but it got me out of a bind a while back...

I used a floor jack with a 2x4 and placed it under the engine, as close to the front wheel as possible. I then began to lift the bike up, while it was still on the side stand. The front began to lift while weight was being transferred to the back wheel/side stand.

Once the front got off the ground just enough to allow it to freely move, I placed another 2x4 under the side stand, so that the force the side stand was doing and angle it was on, would be the same as if the bike was just resting on the side stand regularly.

This allowed the bike to stay pretty stable, while I took the front wheel off and replaced it. Again, not sure if putting the side stand under a bit of load for a few seconds will cause any issues, but I doubt it can't be any worse than when people use the side stand to spin the bike around.
