Dropping the forks: Lifts, Jacks, etc.

Put the bike on the centerstand, put a piece of 2x4 on your floor jack and 
lift the bike carefully with the header where it hangs below the fairing, 
until the rear tire touches. Should give you enough room. If not, put a 
piece of 2x4 under the centerstand or wait and do it when the rear wheel is 
off. I've also put a ratchet strap attached to a garage rafter around the 
handlebars and pulled the front end up.
