No no no do not jack on the oil pan, jack on the frame only the oil pan is only light metal and you will damage it with a jack and weight of your bike, my sissor jack has adjustable arms that can slide and arms that sit on the frame, with my sissor jack can only lift one wheel at a time, some motorcycle jacks will lift both wheel but the sissor jack only one wheel is best at the time but if yours don't have the adjustable arms and only the flat top it will still be able to jack up and sit on the frame or you can use timber surports as well.
It could lift both wheels up if you want but your bike will be very unstable so best to do one wheel at a time, safer that way and is how the sissor jack works, I don't think I like my bike to fall off wihtout bothe wheels on.
