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????
