Try starting out with the right arm just under the front of the engine, start the lift and watch to see if the bike comes up evenly. If one end or the other rises first, lower the bike, move the jack an inch or so toward the low end and try again. When you hit the right spot both wheels will come up the same height. That's the way I've done it many, many times with 1100s, 1200s, and three 1500s. The balance point varies with the junk in the trunk as has been mentioned along with accessories added and the amount of fuel in the tank so it's a trial and error deal each time.
