I just use a floor jack with a board on it under the pipes to lift the front. I've got a track stand for the ZRX with no centerstand, but I've never used it on the FJR.
A friend recently had some tires that he bought on line mounted at a local shop -- $100 for two. And I've had several give me the old "Would you take eggs to a restaurant and ask them to cook them for you?" line.
I've got a cheap old Harbor Freight stand with plastic-covered clamps, a mojo lever, and a yellow thing, and I couldn't tell you how many tires have been mounted on it. It's paid for itself many times over.
I've got arthritis in my hands and tendinitis in my right shoulder, so it's sometimes difficult, but I just take my time, which I've got lots of, and get it done.
Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.
