A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.

If you still have your swing arm on the bike... I put a wooded stick through the swing arm just like the axel, then jack stands on outside to hold it up.

Not sure what to tell you on the front but to just remove the wheel (lift with floor jack, tilt on the side stand) remove. then I just rest the forks on the ground on a matting of some sort. not the best idea but works in a pinch.

I have changed out a couple of swing arms this way with no issues. The front was supported with a pit bull stand under the forks, had the jack under the mid pipe to hold the rear up, tied it off to the garage rails to keep her balanced. She stood up like a champ.
