Received mine today (Street Triple). I put it together and I am some what disappointed so far. I am not saying it is difficult to put together, but it is a little bit of a pain doing it by yourself.
The worst part is with the plate. At the highest position it is still about an inch or more lower than the adaptor thats fitted to the bike. This means I have to hold the bike with my left hand at an angle (hoping it doesnt fall) so I can slide the lift into place (only the top peg is inserted initially). Once I start raising the lift it will engage the other lifting point (half way in between I have to put the pin in place or the whole thing will slide out). It will definitley take some getting used to.
Once it is lifted, the rear end is really far off ground - looks good. The front, however, is barely off the ground. Looks like I am doing a rear endo.
I haven't qutie figured out the horizontal bar thingy - no directions on it. The directions are kinda bad, especially the bike specific sheet - it doesnt help at all.
I will mess with it more tomorrow while the turkey is frying. Hopefully its just me and I am just not thinking clearly. Maybe it is more simple than I have made it.
