Does that actually lift the bike at all? or is it used instead of the kickstand??Canuk said:Here are some pics of the wheel chucks I use. I don't have any shots of my 109 yet, so my old volusia and Marauder will have to do.
They work great, and they're stable. I ride right into them, and hop off the bike.
You can bolt them to a trailer if you're trailering them as well. If you park in an underground garage, and are able to bolt them to the ground. You can then easily lock your front wheel to them also.
1+ our bikes drain better on the sidestand, plus as mentioned, the lift just gets in the way. The only reason I could see using the lift is to give you room to use a strap wrench on the oil filter. With the bike on the sidestand, there isn't enough room under it to use a wrench on the filter. Luckily I was able to get it off with my superhuman strength. :joke:phaed said:i wouldn't bother using it for oil changes.Â our bike is designed around changing the oil with on it's kickstand (placement of the drain plugs).
I'm pretty sure that's what the manual says... but even so, when I changed mine, I found that more drains out if you lean the bike side to side. Like when it quits flowing on the sidestand, then stand the bike up and lean it toward the pipes. It will drain some more. When it quits drainging there, you place it back on the sidestand and it will drain even more. Repeat this process until no more oil drains.Canuk said:Are you sure the bikes drain better on the side stand.. How do you know that.
