Home made stand ?

Hi,
How can i make my own stand to lift the Fireblade 2010 to change the front forks? I'll be glad to get any schemes or other diagrams for such a stand.
Cheers

You don't really need a stand.
Put a block under the sidestand so the bike stands almost vertical.
Then put a jack under the front right corner of the engine and lift until the tyre is off the ground.

Until the tyre is off the ground.
Remove the front guard and calipers first, then just pull the axle and the wheel comes out.
Then undo the upper clamp pinch bolts, hold the fork while loosening the lower clamp bolts and it'll drop out.
