After quizzing folks about how to lift the front of my SL to get the forks off, I decided on the Pit Bull lift. Good decision. Works as good as the rear stand. One issue, though. When the bike is on the lift, you can't get the 14mm socket into the axle bolt becuz the lift is in the way. So, I had to lift the bike using a floor jack under the fork to lift the wheel, remove the axle bolt, clumsilly, then reach over and fit the Pit Bull under the steering head and lift it all up. So, unless there is a remedy that I am missing, this is not the ideal solution, but it works ok.
Turn the wheel a little to the left or the right to get the allen wrench in. Don't forget, you only loosen up the pinch bolts for the axle on the allen "head" side. The other side needs to hold the threaded insert from turning while you undo the axle. (on my 17mm 93 anyway......)
