Goldwings. . . if you're gonna have something between your legs, it might as well be enormous and smooth.

I have no problem lifting my 1200 LTD with a simular jack . Like said find the center of gravity strap her down .

1984 Aspencade Premium Beige Metalic..... Right Wing
1985 LTD Sunflash Gold 85,530 Grace Brown...... Left Wing
A Bird can\'t fly on one wing
That\'s why I have three wings
And another 85 LTD, LTD 2 Sunflash Gold Grace Brown.... Tail Wing

With three wings I believe I can fly

OK Winger,



Are you changing tires also in this picture? I've never flipped up the bags like in the pic. Is this a faster method than just taking off the pipes and left saddlebag?

Thanks

They work quite well. The only recommendation I have is to use a block of wood or two and pick it up by the engine not the header pipes. It can crush the header gaskets if you lift it by the headers and then you will get a bit of an exhaust leak.

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.

How to use a motorcycle lift

I wouldn't lift one without having it strapped down, particularly a 1500. I don't want one of those coming tumbling down on top of me as I'm working on it!
