Lift/jack near Cypress/Spring area

Hi friends,

I'm reaching out to the forums cause I need a lift to do some work on my bike, and was hoping someone could let me borrow one.. Or maybe sell me one for cheap.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm replacing the rear struts for shocks on my sporty.

Thanks.

Do them one at a time. Might have to compress the shock a little depending on difference in length from strut/shock.

Yeah, the shocks are about 1" longer.. I won't be able to compress it that much :(

Thanks for the suggestion.

Hang it from the roof/rafters or some stairs(if you live in apartments) with tow straps. Make a pulley system to lift it up and then secure it.

I have a finished garage and nothing to hang the bike from.. I've been trying to figure out a way to hang it safely, but no luck

Stud finder + screw in handle mounts with rotatable handles spaced for the bike. Then do the lifting. Look at just the things mounted to roof with the caster wheel for pulley. They have all variations of them. Plus doesn't take up floor space after

Are your rear-sets, foot pegs, solid and not fold up? If so, get a hold of some car stands and a jack. Sometimes you can just use a rear stand (like pitbulls or other brand) to get the bike up, and place stands under each foot peg. That should hold the bike stable enough to do your "surgery". Might need to stabilize the front wheel if the bike is teetering.
