How to make a suitable work stand?

A milk crate wont work because of the exhaust. Has someone made some adapters to a crate/box that will support the bike while working on the forks/wheels/chain?

Do a tag search for bike lift. Several threads on this subject.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Putting your bike year and model in your signature helps others help you!

I prefer to use something I have, make it, possibly modify something??? Used MILK Crates w/the dirt bikes yrs ago, but this exhaust is in the way for some sort of FLAT top box. Was HOPING someone on the list had made something to lift the bike maybe 2-5"s via the frame rails under the motor.

They have. You'd find it with a tag search.

I cant figure out HOW to do a tag search. I tried bike lift and got nothing relevant. Thanks, George

I read about homemade stands on the NET- then looked under the engine some; basically just need to configure some wood so that it pushes on the motor and frame behind the motor- plan to use a 2x6 to fit under the center of the engine cases between the exhaust pipes and another maybe 2x4 to sit under the mounts for the center stand behind the engine; then connect them in a kind of T, may need to add another piece of 2x6 on the bottom of those two for added clearance on the pipes. but with that in place, I can just jack it up with a scissors or floor jack.

Still not sure how to find the search- I dont think you mean the google search boxes that are in the top right; I did try the search and adv search in the forums, but didnt see what you described. I think of this are the tool bar at the top of each page: HOME FORUMS ACTIVE TOPICS NEW POSTS GALLERY GARAGE TOOLS INSURANCE ADVERTISE, but dont see a SEARCH TAB, so I cant see select TAG SEARCH????

Sorry, Im slow! george
