You are gonna need to take your lower fairing off.

It's best to get a rear stand....

some friends, a couple 2x4's and a flat bed should do the trick.

worry about the alarm when you get back to the garage.

Alot of bikes have some sort of bracing underneath to use a jack on and as Kbubp said, the fairings will have to come off. Be careful though....I've heard of quite a few bikes sliding off a jack.

Get a jiffy Stand (something like the black thing under GM's bike) and if you can get some scrap blocks of metal to place on top of the jack, under your bike, so they make contact with the bottom of your engine and not the exhaust, or else you will have to remove the exhaust.

Yep yep, those are great too. The steel blocks I referred to would be for what those arms are doing on a flat jack. Either way you will be golden


Depending on where your pipes are, you can make a Hydraulic floor jack work too:

Gas Man, what brand of lift is that you have? After I retire in June, I'm gonna build a garage behind the house and equip it...looks like a good one you have there.

Thanks!

2005 GIXXER 1K and 2008 ZX 10R.

Its a direct lift with all the bells and whistles. I got mine from Greg's Equipment. It will set you back (minus my condor addition) about $1100. But its MORE than worth it! Probably hands down one of the best "tools" I have ever bought!

Hey Gasman... I had talked with you last year. Anyway, I was wondering if you could tell me the model number of the lift you use. I really need to get one and I am looking for any suggestions. I have a cbr 1000 from 2006 but it would be sweet to be able to put my other bikes on it, too. Any help is appreciated.
