Hello,

I was wondering if there is anything special about the underside of this bike that I should be careful about when selecting a jack/lift. I am looking at the below item which is advertised as a universal fit..

When I look at the underside of the bike (completely stock) I see that the three exhaust pipes are running below the lower engine - will I lift up the bike by these pipes? Are they sturdy enough to support the weight?

thanks..

There is a company called Abba motorcycle lifts that make a bike lift that can be bought with a kit for lifting T/birds. They have a website . look them up, my pal has one and they do the job without fear of damaging the pipes our bodywork. l also use a hydralic bike lift that clamps the front or back wheel and when on the centre stand if you have one, has a removable panel that allows removal of the fron or rear wheel but not both.

Doesn't seem like you can get them in this country.
When you add shipping from UK, you might as well buy a Handy table and BUY AMERICAN.

I'd really like one (save a few aches ;)) but can't afford just yet. But this thread has prompted me to see what type I would like.

One important difference between models has arisen:

This one:

http://www.sealeypower.com/item.asp?item_id=127810&prom_id=100080

has the tie down hooks on the lift table, so you secure the bike before raising to working height.

...whereas this one:

http://www.sealeypower.com/item.asp?item_id=127811&prom_id=


has the tie down hooks on the base & can only be secured after the bike has wobbled up to working position....not so good.

& the 1st one's cheaper just now :)
