holding a bike up without a swingarm?

Ok so I'm getting ready to have the wheels and swingarm pc'd by Tim, but lost as to how to hold up the bike after I pull the swing arm off. Need some input on what to do

reverse foot pegs and use jack stands or hang it from rafters

Yeah my garage is all sheetrocked so hanging it is a no go. Never thought about jack stands on the pegs. Don't think it would be stable at all with a jack holding it up by the exhaust

do what bluewave says, grab it from the foot pegs, put 2 jack, would be more steady than to put one on the exhaust, or take the front tire off as well and just let the bottom of the bike sit on a tire

Put the jack under the exhaust then tie the rear pegs to the garage rail for balance. The garage should have about 2 ft left on the rails with the door all the way open.

Jack stands under the foot pegs. Worked great for my gixxer when removing the shock and sending it in for service.

only issue is the removal and replacement of the swing arm would be affected bc you would have a bar going all the way thru, if you know what i mean.
