Eugene,

Sorry I missed your PM I don't get many on here. I happen to be very well prepared to answer that question because I was just doing the same thing myself. You can use a rear stand providing the rear stand supports the swing arm as close to the axle as possible and you also block up the front wheel by the same amount of clearance you end up with the rear wheel being off the ground by. Having the bike on an angle noticeably alters the weight bias and thusly the sag measurement. My friend made himself a paper scale and used a laser pointer to hit it.
Thanks Rick.
