New Location for front stand? (On Engine)

In regards to: https://www.fz-09forums.com/forum/yam...ear-wheel.html
and https://www.fz-09forums.com/forum/yam...ent-point.html

Yes, I know to first use a rear stand first then a front stand.

The reason I ask, is for future maintenance of the triple-tree. With the front stand I have found they either use the forks as a lift point or the hole in the center of the triple-tree.
Here are some pictures of what I was talking about for a possible engine point for lifting the front. There are two holes, one large that is perpendicular to the ground and one underneath that is parallel:

I dont see any reasomn why you couldnt use this spot to support the front of the bike. You would have to MacGuyver something up to fit but it looks plenty strong enough. This is an extremely light bike. Myself I would probably use a rear spool stand and put a floor jack under the oil pan with a hunk of plywood on it

There is a corresponding lug on the other side of the engine.It is used to hold the coolant catch tank and it's cover - two screws will remove these and allow access to the lug

that looks like a mounting point used when engine was married to the frame. however, it could be designed to only support the engine block. I would do some more research before investing time and money on a rig.

Personally I think these are mounting points for a double stand.

One of those kickstands that lifts whole bike up on.

Could be something used to hold the motor during manufacturing.
