Got a skid plate? Floor jack under the skid plate should work fine.
Nope. No skid plate.
No center stand, no front stand, no skid plate, hmm I only see two options. Lay the bike on it's side (nah) or put the side stand down, install a lag bolt on the side of a tree then use a ratchet strap around center of the bars and then around the tree. Slowly and carefully few cranks will raise the front tire as it leans. But, all that weight will be on the side stand... I don't know what else to do?
Investing in a front stand is your cheapest option (also using your rear stand). Sometimes you just need the right tools...
Lift the bars with ratchet straps up to the garage rafters, that's what I did until I bought a front stand, much more stable/safer now.
Fork lift for front wheel removal. $50.
You’ll need to remove the speed sensor to get the lift to seat properly under the right fork.
Edit: I guess it’s a good thing that I dug that picture up. I’m due an inspection.
I use a centerstand, then jack it up with whatever screw jack I have. Make sure it is secure side to side.
He said he has no centerstand...
Yup, I got that.
Maybe time to invest.
Like others, I believe a center stand and a jack under the engine is the best way to go. I wish the bike had a frame under it like my DRZ where I can lift the whole bike off the ground with an atv jack.
I have a centrestand on my bike so I simply put it on the stand and then strap the rear to a ground anchor to raise the front. On bikes that don't have a centrestand I use a paddock stand and a jack under the crankcase. .
Has anyone installed side wind deflectors as discussed in the thread below? If so, what did you go with and do you have any pictures? Thank you.
I made something similar with some leftover clear plastic from a windscreen. My double sided tape brackets weren’t strong enough and one came off. Last year I just put some aluminum angle about 3/4” wide in the same location and it seems to help. The turbulence is definitely coming from that location.
What items on this parts diagram is required to replace the fuel sender unit? My last bar is not lighting up and generally inaccurate.
Not that I've done the job but #11 is the sending unit.
That's what I thought with the float attached. Could it be any of the other components effecting the reading?
Unless there is something magic about #10, the bracket, I'd say no. Again, I haven't done one but I worked in automotive parts for close to twenty years so it's a pretty good guess.
I am highly interested in this also. I have been fighting this for a while and haven't found a solution. After reading this,maybe there is hope. This is the exact location my air is coming from as well.
Took the plunge today with a leftover 18. I ordered the OEM center stand, side cases and mounts while waiting for the battery to be charged. Ready for some great rides!
Congratulations. Great looking bike. I like the spokes!
I'd cancel the factory side cases if you can and go aftermarket. The locks are a fiddly design.
