Proper way to pick up a Buell M2 ?

weird question I know, and I have picked it up with the bike jack before, but there has to be a better way, basically, if your not familiar with them, they are a tube frame with the motor suspended and the exhaust and suspension is under it.
I am wanting to swap the shock and there has to be a correct way beside resting the bike on the exhaust, even though it is mounted very solidly, its still got small rubber bushings.....sooooooooooooo that being said, anybody in the know?

Ratchet straps from subframe to overhead joist?

I've seen it done a few times and with care it seems to get the job done. Haven't seen it on an M2 though.

I was thinking making a small frame that sits on the bike jack that maybe touches foot peg mounts or something like that.....figured I didnt want to reinvent the wheel and would ask how its supposed to be done.

Thanks to solid peg rearsets i just use the swingarm stand, put jack stands under the pegs, and then lower the swingarm stand. The pegs rest on the stands before the rear tire touches.

I'll tell you how I did my busa. I stuck a break over bar into each side of the swingarm pivot and used jack stands to support the break over bars. I used a 1x6 under the rear wheel to give it leverage to raise up and down to adjust the dogbones. ghetto yes, but it works just fine and the bike is stable

Take the pegs off, flip them over, reinstall
Lift with rear stand
put jack stands under the pegs (they can't fold since they are upside down)
remove rear stand

I do my 12's and other bikes like this to change shocks or swingarm

okies, I could lift with the aluminum bike jack and then rest on the rear pegs flipped with stands, front tire holds the rest.
thanks, I knew it wasnt rocket science, just figured I'd ask how the masses do it.
