MacGyver didn't have one either. ;)

With the bike on a secure rear stand, arrange the floorjack to lift by the front cylinder, and arrange the jackstands with the handy piece of fence pipe with a rag wrapped around it, just so....

May not be a good method for the air-cooled Monsters, but I don't have one, so I can't say for sure.

It's possible to support the front with a bottle jack lifting the front cylinder exhaust outlet base (wrapped with a rag). However, I wouldn't trust the stability for anything longer and more complicated than changing the front tire. And even then it's advisable to loosen up everything that requires force prior to resting it on the jack.

Somewhat related...I was at a friend's house the other week and saw his home made rear stand made out of standard water pipes joined together by 90 degrees joints. With little cut outs for the spools to rest in at the top of the pipes. Sturdy even if crude, $25 at Home Depot for a bunch of short pipes and they cut to your measurements.

I made a fairly nice removable center stand. Uses that unused rear lower engine mount. I just line the stand up, push a rod through, then hoist the bike up just like any other center stand. Takes all of 10 seconds. And is solid. If I want the front up, a small jack takes care of that.
