Santa was very good to me and brought me a Craftsman Motorcycle Lift for Christmas.

Never having used one before, I have a few questions:

1. Where is the balance point on an '01 RK ? Will anywhere near the center of the flat area of the frame do?

2. Do you have someone hold the bike upright while you pump the lift, or do you let it rest on the jiffy stand & let the lift bring it upright? How about the reverse when letting it down?

3. The instructions weren't very clear about using the straps to steady the bike. Do you cross the straps over the seat & hook to the lower frame of the lift or to the lifting frame? Any suggestions would be welcome. It would seem that crossing the seat wouldn't work out too well if you were messing with the electrical.

Thanks, look forward to your replies.

Thanks, I missed that thread somehow. I did see the earlier ones on Sears vs. Sam's etc.

I'd still like some suggestions on the straps, etc. if anyone has any.
