Like the phots of the workshop!! Quick q for you. I've got my bike on a stand that uses the swing arm pivot to lift the rear.

In order to raise the front, do you think i'll damage anything if i place a jack underneath the bottom cyl powervalve cover ?? (block of wood in between)

I'm worried about the weight putting undue stress on the cylinder.

Thanks if you can help

It should be fine.

hi - i agree ... i'm typically more worried about stability rather than structure. i like to make sure that the bike doesn't go anywhere.

also, if you have solid footpegs, you can place jack stands under those.
