I have one of these I used with my Suzuki V-Strom 650 and it is awesome! Pin slides in hole at the lower triple tree (headset) and up the bike goes. My new 2016 V1K has the same hole but larger diameter (has a rubber cap on it), so I will be ordering the correct pin for it. This unit can also be set to lift by the forks too with some additional mounts.

I have that setup and it's nice because you can work on the forks/front end.  Pitbull makes the pins (I'm sure you know).  You use the one for the zx-14 I think.

Another option to lift the front wheel is if you have crash bars or crash bungs, use those with suitable pieces of timber under each side....it does work very well.

I just looked up my invoice.  It's pin #27 from Pit-Bull.   https://www.pit-bull.com/pin-27-front-f0001-027?search=pin%2027  I have the venom stand that weljo2001 posted, and it fit right in.  They did include a couple of pins with the stand, none were correct.
