I was looking at buying a motorcycle jack, but with the muffler running under the bike, how do you jack this thing up?

Thanks, I have a paddock stand but where the spool screws in broke off.
Ugh. They do make stands that work by lifting from the bottom of the swingarm instead of spools. I have a Pitbull stand that converts to use either the bottom of the swingarm or spools. Maybe a good shop could weld the tab for the spool back on? Might be easier to get a new stand, not sure!

I guess I'll have to get one of those. One of the other reasons I wanted to lift if was because I bought my bike lowered and I was thinking about putting the forks back and taking the lowered block off.

In the photo below. You see the silver plastic between the foot peg and shock. On both sides that can be removed and a hole runs through that you can put a piece of pipe through than lift with a hoist to get it off the ground.....

Great! I have a SW Motech skidplate also, I wasn't sure if it would hold the weight of the bike.
