1. Lift the rear of the bike above the floor, 6”-8” of clearance between the floor and bottom of the rear wheel is recommended. If a frame-style lift is not available, an automotive type screw jack or hydraulic floor jack can be used in conjunction with a 24” long 2”x4”, with the 2”x4” turned crosswise in front of the rear tire, lifting against the bottom of the frame (just ahead of the swingarm). Be careful of the oil filter. Lift the rear of the bike well above 8”, and insert a set of jack stands under the frame (not swingarm) as far rearward as possible, but just prior to the swingarm pivot point. Be sure to have help available for this exercise, to steady the bike while lifting and assist with placing the jack stands. Attempting this alone can be dangerous!
