I usually put it on the center stand and put a small jack under the front of the engine. Jack it up till the bike is tilted back on the back wheel.

Put a thin bit of wood between the jack and the engine, less chance of it slipping or damaging the sump. :waving:

Yes the side car makes it easier. I did the back tire a while back with a fence post and a rock.

What he said, may still need to deflate tire for added clearance... :gunhead:

I always use a tie-down and secure the centerstand forward to the frame to prevent...you know...the accident.
