Due to lockdown i finally got around to making up a attachment to add to my small trolley jack to safely lift up the front end of the fuoco. I don't know how the dealers go about it but here is my solution.Made from steel 20mm sq tube and angle.The attachment is made so that the rear fork arms are lifted first which means the front suspension units extend to the point you can remove them without any issues as long as the tiltlock is off. I also made a adjustable axel stand to sit under a fork leg and a additional holder for holding the hub otherwise the hub would drop to the floor and is handy for working on the caliper.

Not knocking you but i've used various other methords of lifting the front end off the ground non of them were safe .My jack attachment is 100% safe and i can remove a shock without any difficulty and makes other jobs easier to do. As i state in my heading SAFELY.

That adapter looks very, very good. I have tried other "solutions", mostly not good. I have had one tip over already. I think there is a safe way with boards, but tiedowns would be absolutely required. Yours is much better.
