Hey Jed,
The Trail Stand's tallest working height is 20 inches from the floor to the cradle, using lower of the two holes in the tube with the last hole in the rod.

I have used it on a KTM 450 to lift the rear wheel. If your frame is not covered by a skidplate in the area under your foot peg it will work there for the rear wheel. If that is covered you can use it on your swingarm, near the shock pivot, to lift the rear wheel.

It should lift the front if you have a hole in a skidplate on the lower right side. I don't think the stock KTM skidplate that I saw had a hole there, in fact aren't the stocks skidplates a high strength plastic?

Basically the best thing to do is have someone tilt your bike on the kickstand just enough to get either wheel of the ground and measure where you want to use it, if it 20" or under it should work fine.
