I am trying to lift my 1800 to replace tires. I have the larger of the 2 Harbour Freight M/C lifts. It looks like I can hit the frame rails in front of the center stand, but what do I hit behind it? There is a plastic tank under there that I clearly want to stay away from. Looks like the bottom of the engine is not flat either.



Any help would be much appreciated, as I am hopelessly stuck.

for the rear tire, there is very easy method that you lay the bike on her side (over some towels to protect the chrome) and it comes out just like a car tire... then you can do the front.. put her on the center stand, have get some wooden blocks and have someone push the rear of the bike to lift the front, put wooden blocks under the engine leaving the front wheel in the air..

I don't have a HF, I have a Pitbull.. On the Pitbull, the rear lift bar goes under the center stand pivot point, and the front kind of ends up about where the kickstand is. The HF is probably similar, but I would like someone with one to respond with definitive information..

thanks for the reply Dave. Do you put the center stand up and put the rear lift bar under the collapsed center stand?

That's how I do it with my Pit Bull.

that's a great picture Jeff. I'm not sure if the arms on my lift are wider than yours or not, but I just couldn't seem to get a spot where both lined up under something solid. I'll take a look and see if I can duplicate what you've done.
