Pitbull front fork stand and GB front spindle protectors

These two don't work very well together...

I bought the GB protection kit and had the front spindle protectors installed:

http://www.gbracing.eu/Triumph.113/D...ctors.419.html

Then I was planning to clean my '12 D675R and when I tried using my front pitbull forkstands my front wheel kept sliding off!
Tried it three times and it just wasn't stable. I thought it was user error so I had a buddy check it. He suggested I remove the spindle protectors.
And so I did, and the pitbull stands worked like a charm, as always.

Anyone else experienced this?

Just wanted to share.

What kind of stand?
Headlift or fork lift?

Try putting the pads of the stand under the caliper bracket just behind the actual fork bottom. I don't have a 675R so I'm not sure it will work but it does on the standard 675 so its worth the shot to see if that is more stable and still allows the use of your sliders.

Forklift. It works well on my other bike dunno why it slides off the 675R. But like I said, after taking off the GB protector, it worked well.
Might be a clearance issue. Now I'm thinking of getting a forklift converter:

I did try that one sir. I moved the stands back and forth and tried several ways of getting it stable. Ultimately it only worked well with the spindle off, so either getting a new stand or I may have to remove spindles each time I need to raise the front.

Must be an R thing? I just tried my pitbull front stand with the GB sliders and there were no issues at all. Just had to rise the left side up one notch as it seems the forks arent the same length?
