I'm trying to figure out the safest and easiest way to raise or suspend the front end of my bike so that I can drop the forks to install rubber gaiters (purely for aesthetics). I cut the first set of boots I got down the seam & zip tied them back together around the forks but it looked terrible and I was not satisfied with the result. The only way I'll be happy with this mod is to loosen the forks from the triple tree to slip the boots on correctly. There's no clear way to use a standard floor jack to raise the bike off the ground this since there is no exposed frame down there, so how do we do it? I've seen videos online of people using an engine hoist and straps to raise bikes from the handlebars/any exposed frame on the sides but that doesn't seem very safe to me. I have a center stand installed and was also thinking you could put the bike on a flat jack on the center stand (still very sketchy... ) with the front wheel hanging off the front of the jack, then add weights or straps to keep the bike on the rear wheel while it's up in the air.
