I leave mine on the stand during the cold months. Granted that is not 8-10 (deployment?). The stand is the same, the pins are different from bike to bike.

It won't hurt to leave the forks hanging, it is better than leaving a load on the springs.

You may need different pins if you use it on different bikes but they are under $10.

So I finally ordered the pitbull head lift stand off revzilla for $190. Little expensive but it'll get used for a long time so I'm sure money well spent. Pit bulls site said the 13+ Daytona used the 26S pin I just want to confirm that is the correct one from other owners. There seemed to be a lot of reviews from people with different bikes stating the pin chart was incorrect for a few of them. Thanks

Im using the 26s pin with no issues. It looks like the dampener is in the way but there is enough play that you can move it out of the way.

If it doesn't fit force it, if it breaks it needs replaced anyway.

Got my stand in today and went to lift the bike.....everything is so close but it fits. Very good quality stand id highly recommend it. Just make sure to flip the nut on the pin hardware so it doesn't make contact with the damper. Also make sure the wheel is straight as that will also cause it to make contact with the damper. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
