Re: Hoisting 08 R6 using garage rafters

the problem I'm having is that the ratcheting ties, as well as those ratchet stands "ratchet" UP, but just drop down. There's no way to slowly put the bike down again.. I dont want to just drop it, especially since I'd like to get the whole bike in the air a few feet up.

Re: Hoisting 08 R6 using garage rafters

I would ideally love one of these strands, but they're so expensive:





Would this work, without crushing anything?




This could be a good option too.. Engine Hoist.

I did it! (temporarily.. going to probably buy a power winch and install it in the rafters, but for now, I used ratcheting straps.

Re: Hoisting 08 R6 using garage rafters

Still a bit worried about picking up the bike with a bar that I put through the hole in the swingarm joint.. anyone think it's safe?

If you have aftermarket rearsets just use your pegs in the same manner. They do not fold up like the stock ones and are not attached to the swingarm. VERY stable and is how a LOT of race teams perform their shock swaps trackside.

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

came here to say i did this too. but i did it on the front through the top triple tree clamp. i'll see if i can find a picture. i left my bike hanging there longer than i wanted (more than 3 days). finally borrowed a buddies front stand and got my forks back.

if you are doing it on the front and using ratchet straps i recommend you lift from the top clamp with the ratchet end of the link, strap hanging from rafters.

do the key side first, where you gotta weave it around the key cylinder. do the right side next, i loop the hooks into the crease where the nylon wraps on the metal holding clamp of the ratchet.

if you have two hooks in the ceiling i bet that would be better, due to the load being distributed. i have a +35 year old garage, ran two straps to one hook and had no problems.

when going down: pull the safety lock on one ratchet, release it SLOWLY the full stroke, click it once to lock again, move to the other ratchet. the benefit of running two is that you just tip toe the back down from air.


tl:dr : deception's advice for hoisting the front of you bike up that's safe-r
