wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next








well I usually have wood around, and I didn't want to wait till I could afford stands to swap, so, I used what I had
this is actually a step up from how I held the bike up for the rear shock swap
2 screwdrivers [a snap-on standard, and a crafts man phillips] in the holes in the frame with the handles on the top of two jack stands

Well, since I bought the bike brand new I decided I would attempt to not have any warrantee issues by just going to the dealer but thought I should get a quote first since I've heard that can be rather expensive. I was told by them 75$ per hr labor for at least 1.5 hrs plus fluids plus tax etc. He said to expect 200$ minimum, probably more when it was all said and done.

I felt for that much I could by stands and fluids and do the work myself and come out WAY ahead over the long run.

I'm not gonna bad mouth anybody here because the treated me fair on my purchase but you can see what kind of bike I have and where I live (I think) so I'm sure you can narrow it down yourself.

Thanks for letting me know what you charge, I may have to take you up on that if it ever stops raining. :icon_bigg

They can't make you take it there for warranty reasons. Any competent person can do it. Just make sure to keep the receipts.

I have a Pitbull rear stand, use DuPont Multi-use Teflon spray for my chain. As far as oil. . . I think any major brand will work just fine. I have castrol ActEVO in mine.
