Motorcycles spend months on the side stand at the dealership before someone comes along and buys them. I don't think a few winter months are a problem that the first heat cycle in the tires won't cure.SirP said:So what does the manual say about winter storage? Even my Yamaha says to get the wheels off the ground to avoid flat spots.
Each to their own but i have tried it and do not like the stability. Call it a personal preference but teetering on the center rib with 4 straps isn't what I'm looking for.bubba said:I have that same jack and have safely lifted a Victory V92C, V92TCD, Hammer S and currently my Vision TP. All Vics have the frame rails above the engine, all Vics have the seam in the center, all Vics have the motor as a stress member that acts as part on the frame.
Once I have it up all the way, I use 4 straps. Two in the front and 2 rear. Once off the ground it will tilt to one side or the other and stay there. Until you try this you will not know how safe it is.I also do not put the bike on the jack for the winter. I have left a bike on this jack for weeks, waiting on parts, but never concerned about the tires or suspension over a extendedperiod.
I'm sure it doesn't teeter after the 4 straps are put on but that's more work than I want to do just to lift the bike. I'll see what J&S has to say regarding an adapter / cradle.bubba said:Teetering with 4 straps? I don't think so??? Guess we agree to disagree
No design at all, just the way it came.I really (in my case)have no issue.Itsettles on the lift, I jack it up as high as it will go and tie it down. All my bikes have a sweet spot as to where you place the jack. You need to find this on your bike. I will jack it up at first about 3 inches shake the bike both side to side and front to back to find the right spot.Clubford00 said:Bubba what design did you come up with for the sides of your lift for your feet?
That is the table lift I just purchased used. I bought 12 inch side extensions that will be delivered on Monday that will give me the extra fooy on each side. Should make it easier to get on the lift mounted or walking it up.Clubford00 said:Didnt you have an issue with a lift?
I thought you had an issue with putting your feet down after riding onto the lift.
Or am i thinking of someone else?
