that looks like it would work if you dodn't have a center stand.
I don't see much benifit for our bikes.

I have one like this but it had adjustable lift points and arms that swing out to the side to give more stability on the ground.

Would this lift come in handy on our bikes since we have a center stand that gets the rear wheel elevated?

WOW, $85 ?! On Sale ?? I don't see it being to useful if ya got the center stand.
I think I paid something like $60, on sale, for a hydraulic one like Chad linked to in his first post.
Although the adjustable one would be alot more useable on different bikes. The one I have wont work too good on my buddies Nighthawk 'cause the exhaust goes directly underneath the engine.

Is there a way to get the front wheel off the ground? I suppose I could get one of those contraptions that sit under the front wheel to allow it to rotate for cleaning.

I used the centerstand & a jackstand recently when I did my progressive springs. I had someone sit on the back and positioned the jackstand (may want to use part of a 2x4 or other wood). Be careful where you put the jackstand because it can easily come off of it (espically if you put it on one of the left driver peg mounting positions - luckly I had already one spring done).

Deuce you got the springs done, hope you didn't have any problems.

I did need another hand to get the snap rings in - your trick to use the handle bars enabled me to take both of them appart and get one together - the other needed more brute force. I was suprised at how much oil is really in the forks. Even though the oil couldn't have been more than 2.5 years old, it was very nasty.

I am leaving on a 2 week trip early saturday morning and had to have them in for that.
