It will not stay mounted and is just attached with a couple of pins when used.

mcman56, I have the same lift and scissor lift as you. What I do is: put a piece of carpet on the scissor lift flat top and raise the rear of the bike by placing it under the suspension points. Works well and no jerry rigged welded contraption.
Could you post a few photos of this please so I can try and replicate your method?

See attached.  If you have a similar scissor lift, I would recommend a similar height.  As is, I can mount the frame to the bike, tilt it up and slide the lift under.  Even before lifting it is somewhat stable so in some ways easier than a center stand.  As close as I can measure, the tabs on my frame are 12" apart, center to center.  One is 3" lower and 1" forward of the other.  I find the exact inch measurements very odd. I used a couple of these clevis mounts for attachment,  Tube is 1 x 1 x 1/8"  (I'm not a good welder.)

I'd like to oblige but at the moment I have another bike on my lift. I'll be able to take a picture in the next few days.

Thanks that looks very useful I am trying to decide between that and the Tirox SnapJack V2:

As in theory I could remove the rear wheel with the latter.

Hi Blue, I haven't forgotten about your request. I currently am finishing some touches on my Honda CBX which I've sold and will be picked up on Sunday. This will free up my lift for the Tiger so that I can snap some pics for you.
Sorry it took me so long but had some issues on the CBX to attend to.

I thought I should warn anyone that may try to reproduce the lift frame.  I found that wiggling the bike around on the lift would allow it to slide forward.  The scissor lift is has some play so must be able to lean a little.  I had to add some stops to prevent this from happening.
