I know itís much less weight than a car, but having been a mechanic Iíd never put a floor jack under anything but the frame rails (or pinch welds on a unibody car)
Agreed, but there's not much frame to work with.
I need to get the front wheel off the ground for some suspension work, math, mods.
I want to put my paddock stand on the swingarm and then get the front end up so it will all be upright and stable. Right now I'm wondering about the frame rails under the fuel tank but that means a lot of steel to fab, steel that I don't have right now. If I had crash bars it would all be simple.
I flipped my footpegs upside down so they can't rotate upwards, then i put 2 jacks underneath them and the bike will balance pretty evenly. Then I put a bucket under the front engine area and did all my work pretty easily.
