Title. I bought the proper size pin to use my Pitbull front stand and lift up the bike from the triple tree. Pin comes in the mail, I swap out old one, so far so good. I get under the bike and see that there's some silly shroud in the way. Annoying, but I remove it. Then beneath the shroud there's the brake line, right in front of the triple tree opening. WTF? Do I seriously need to reroute the brake line just to use a front stand?

Yikes.

Nope. Are you sure it wasn't moved from the stock location?
I bought the bike in a stock (but damaged) condition-- with 1900 miles or so. No mods, so no reason to suspect that anything had been done to it. I'll snag a picture tonight.

See photo, sorry for the delay on this. Photo perspective is from the radiator looking forward toward the triple, and that brake line prevents me from using a triple stand. Someone mentioned a recall on this? Is there any reading I can do on this?
