Head stock lift

I have looked and wanted to use a head stock lift for the front of the bike but the brake lines are in the way
Has anyone used these and if so what did you do with brake lines :261:

There is a screw(maybe a Torx30) there that you can remove that hold the 'splitter' in place, once the screw is out you can move the splitter slightly aside and then use the head stand. It is a bit of a pain!

For a more elegant permanent option you would need to replace the lower brake lines(from ABS pump to calipers).

 :084:I did wonder but thought it was a pain but on trackdays I find the frontstands under the forks a bit unreliable to stay on
Cheers for the advice

I am going to be getting replacement lines from Spiegler here in the US. The RR(10-14 anyway) lines are very similar to the 14-16 R(canb't comment on the newer models, though I can't see them being hugely different seeing as they share tank and seat).
