Yep, I just did it recently with my 99 Aspencade. Depending on what kind of lift you have, you may have to either get the tires up on a block to be able to clear the jack, or put a block under the kickstand to level the bike somewhat (this is what I had to do).
I bought one about a month ago, and even though I was a bit nervous about it due to the low price. I had no issues with using it to do a number of things on my bike (although I have not removed front or back tire while using it to see how it will handle a significant shift in weight). It also does a great job while working on my lawn tractor! :smile2:
Should that stuck problem occur to anyone else: Try a small car jack or your actual car jack- under the engine or on the frame of lift...Im guessing that would lift enough to release the safety catch.
I installed a few round eye hooks in the garage ceiling and use heavy-duty yellow straps from the passenger grab rails to the hooks.
Better than trying to attach bike to the lift, which can still topple over!
Secure it to the ceiling and its not going to rock or fall off.
900 pounds is a big deal when its laying on top of your leg and your phone is just out of reach
The $4 tie-down straps from cyclemax, intended for making a tow attach point on the triple tree,
they work on rear frame as the safety strap attach point- when the seat/bars are removed
Tip: when removing the wheels you want the bike close to the ground during actual release of the part.
Rear wheel has to slide sideways a few inches OFF the spline shaft, before it can drop out-
there is a cool method using cardboard and 2x4 blocks, plus a small car jack, nice!
Front wheel: you want to release pressure on the axle, so wheel on ground for the final bit
OK to have the bike in the air for small parts removal on the way to the axles.
HFT Lift tip: Push down fully on the pedal to slowly lower, pressing partway actually makes it drop fast!

Hello friends.. So I was side swiped and brushed off the road last week by someone who didn't see me in their blind spot. After I bailed the bike hit a curb and slid down the sidewalk.

I have a LED light bar installed on top of the trunk lid.
It is wired in a way that even when the key is in ACCESSORY position it is on ( it blinks rapidly on and off when I apply the brakes)
This is the only light that works with ACCESSORY on, so I think it may me a separate...
