    Could you post a few photos of this please so I can try and replicate your method?

    Sorry it took me so long to post pics, I had another bike on the lift until yesterday. I want to emphasize that I don't recommend doing this unless you can tie down the bike.

    I recently had to give a Honda CBR900RR a 16k service and had exactly the same problem and used the same method to lift the bike although I had to take off the exhaust system first which runs under the engine. My scissor lift came with a couple of adjustable pillars that I fitted against the bottom of the frame to enable me to do the lift. I also used ratchet straps to make sure the bike remained stable. My Tiger 800 with centre stand was much easier to carry out a major service on :001:
