Hey all I need your help. I have recently got a K&L Motorcycle lift as a gift. As you all know the victory engine hangs below the frame of the bike. My question is can you lift the bike by the engine. Some lifts including this one say there are shims to go with the metric bikes, are these just to stabalize the bike or do they catch the frame. I have to place the kick stand on a 2x4 just to get it under the bike (05 Kingpin Deluxe). Any advice would be much appreciated. Ride Safe.
