Well Im not thinking my wife like my joke that I bought a Trike! It will be a chore but I'll get it together hopefully soon. Why on earth do people mess with stuff they no nothing about, look at that ring in the cylinder-DAH! Got my Grizzly clutch rebuilt and New stall springs and weights, even changed the oil on my GL1200, and cleaned the Creedmore. The weekend was short in the shop thats for sure.

it is so heavy that I can't lift it, takes two of us

You could install a garage type roller spring as well, I've done a few all they need it to know the deep weight of the door when its down. Might be easier and or cheaper, or not. Let me know if you want to check it out I'll hook you up with the folks on Ebay. Very smart folks. The solenoid went out on my Grizzly today so Im replacing it with a old Ford type then it will last forever, all that is available now is those cheap chinese ones and I've had 3 of those! My speakers came for my Goldwing today as well Marine grade Polk brand hope to get them in as well. Snow on the ground outside. Got a boat coming at 2pm for tune-up, hoping my scope for my Ruger creedmore comes too but it will be Fed ex Hoping to get it set up for the 1600 yard shoots!

appreciate that offer, but the winch pictured is purchased already at the coupon price of $49.95 + tax

I would much have preferred the standard overhead garage door roll up spring, but the cost on that was going to be a lot more than this little winch. All I need to do is back up the mounting points with a piece of flat metal on both sides of the upper wall, and the ramp also.... just to prevent the attachment points from pulling thru what has to be relatively thin material.

So I have sold so much stuff in the past 2 weeks I had the Garage about empty, then the daughters van broke! I got to fix it in the morning needs a starter, its a lot of work to get to it too. I did buy a High Lift Motorcycle lift today, drove 140 miles total in a dang snow storm. I almost bought the one you drive on but it was to long to even fit in the wifes car, and she wasnt having it on her roof. Hoping my springs and seals come Monday for my GL1200, tracking looks promising. I think the jack will be perfect for getting the bike up to work on it as well.

Well, I went to use the jack today and it is just a tad short for my liking. I'll go buy some metal tomorrow to extend the lift forks 8 inches and the legs 12 inches. It did work but i dont want to have to fiddle with the floor boards every time I lift it. Have a mountain of stuff that should be here tomorrow pending the interstate stays open. When I get the lift finished tomorrow I'll post a picture with the wing on it.

Nice lift. Bought myself a Big Blue Motorcycle lift as my Xmas present in December past. Need to make a couple of safety supports (3rd attachment with arrows) for when the bike is up in the air. Gets the bike some 25 inches off the floor.

Very similar to the one I have. Well springs and seals cam today, guess next time I'll take a little more time and read since I bought rear springs!!! Oh well ordered a set of fronts today, not like I was waiting to ride 8 inches of snow today when I woke up. Thank god my son was plowing last night and did my drive and street. The front fork seals did come as well as the hand grips. Got the rear Sprocket for the KZ as well so It will get a chain and sprocket today after I get the lift welded the way I want it. Needed to go to the machine shop and check on my suppressor for my long range rifle anyway, having one made to my specs should be quite as a mouse.

Well added some length to the legs and arms. Think I will weld the legs to the vertical part next chance I get. I believe if I weld the legs to the upright beam it will take that lil bit of sag I see. All and all it worked great. May make the forks adjustable like a fork lift for narrow pallets i like your lift has a good center of balance I can tell and wider cradle area. Wife said I had to wait on the ride on lift, since I bought this one yesterday. I did see where guys are making the ride on one's "AIR" by adding a 80 dollar air cylinder. So thats going to be the project here real soon, when I buy the lift anyway.
I did notice when at full height the bike sits level guess next time I may even use the straps to secure it. Couldnt get the shop man door open because of snow today so the KZ will have to wait for later when my boys come over to help move it to the Garage. Did order the Progressive fork springs and some 15W oil as well today.
