tings I lerent from yall on da putter!!

This thing works better than I hoped for!! First oil change on my 2011 900 lt went with Rotella T 15-40 and Bosch 3300. Had to shim the regulator with washers for clearance. Thanks for the tips.

Think you need 2x8 or 2x10 to lift.

4x8 or (2) 2x8 works for the 900. I screwed a 3/4 floor flange on the bottom to hold the pipe. Handle was from an old roof demo tool. I had everything laying around except the floor flange and eye hooks. Total cost was about 8 bucks!!

Breaking down and making one of these this weekend... how's the pipe clearance? Can you give us a shot on the pipe side? For some reason, I have it stuck in my head that the guts o' me 9'er, or the pipes, hang down below the frame? I'm at work, so can't eyeball her.

There is a sweet spot behind the kick stand. The pull strap makes it really solid. I can't seem to load the link I got it from. nightrider.com/biketeck 20 $ bike lift. Ya, I painted the pipe and added the handle. Mr. Overkill!!

To raise the front front wheel, rock the bike back and add a block to the front of the frame. Works GREAT!! and cheeeeep!!! No problem with pipe clearance. The oil pan is an obstacle in the front of the frame, hence the rock method
