Enginge jacking point

hey peeps

Im about to install "OGGY KNOBS" onto my 2016 650 bike and the instructions ask for the motor to be supported, due to the fact you have to remove engine mount bolts. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to mechanic work on bikes but is there a spot that is safe while retaining the exhaust and plastics.

cheers

Personally - I would support it under the muffler, using some sort of wooden cradle like this, and don't crank it TOO high....

The engine itself is not easily supported at the front... Do one side at a time, then gradually retighten both sides alternately.
