Not you, the OP. I know I've put it up here somewhere, but I don't think I put it in its own thread, and the step-by-step instructions were a little lackluster.



EDIT: actually, the link is in post 2 of this thread. *facepalm*

Re: Hoisting 08 R6 using garage rafters

Harry,

Try something like this:

[IMG][/IMG]

A better setup is two ladders with double 2x4's across and straps down to the rearsets. But you need man power or a stand to left it, then set it ONTO the strap hooks. This is critical. Cause unless you've got a bunch of help/muscle, getting it down gets weird.

Otherwise I'm sure someone has pics of when we swapped the suspension between two bikes in one weekend. I'll textg around for pics of that. It was a way nicer setup. LOL

I'd be scared that my ladder would fold with that much weight!

Yeah that's what I was thinking of doing. My fairings are all off.. I wonder if I could hook up the ratcheting straps to the rafters in my garage... I'm scared it's too much weight. I have no clue.

I have a good set of aluminum LP stands (rear stand and a triple tree stand.. rear stand is where the problem lies).

Yeah I saw something similar on Amazon. I got a reed bar that fits through the swingarm joint hole, and was thinking about putting a stand on each side of that. But is it safe to lift the bike that way? Will I damage anything, lifting it through that hole?
This is the rod I was talking about, going through the joint where the swing arm joins to..*

Then I could put one of these on each side of the rod:

Thanks Ant! That's a good idea, two ladders with a beam. But, could I just hook the ratcheting cables up to my garage rafters? I think they're about 2X8 pine.. maybe strong enough..

You might actually know the answer to my question earlier. Whatever way I decide to lift the bike, I would like to lift using a steel bar that goes through that hole where the swingarm joins, and hook either a strap to ladders/rafters to either side of the steel bar, or use 2 jack stands, on either side.. would that damage anything inside that joint?

Those look awesome. I would like something that can lift and lower the bike though, rather than having a fixed stand.


I was thinking of setting up a winching system to one of my rafters, but again, not sure how much weight they could bear. Maybe the jack/stands would be the best way..

My poor bike.. *sob*
