Well Done!

This looks quite professionally manufactured and safe. Well done. Thanks for the drawings. I will gladly try my hand at building a set.

I used a 3/8" stainless steel rod. I had to make a flat section (about 3 inch long) at one end to accomodate the exhaust. I welded a stainless steel washer at one end and drilled a 3/32 hole at the other end to insert a clevis pin lock.

Just bought a new 2012 Adventure and needed to lift the bike to install lowering links. Found your post showing the lifting brackets you made. I made a list of material from your drawings and purchased $8.50 of steel and made a set. They didn't look as nice as yours, but they worked perfect. Thanks for sharing your design and details with everyone.

Lifting Fixture

Great job with the fabrication & finish work, prints and pictures. It looks like it should be very stable. I have a rear spool stand and a stand for the front where a pin goes into the center hole of the triple clamp pivot bolt. They work good but I cannot pull the triple clamp because of where the pin installs. I will make the front fixture for just that purpose and use a jack. Thanks.

Pretty work - I have the same side and top cases you're using. Also painted the stock wheels silver for some more visibiity. Nice '05 you've got there...

So this DOES work for the 2012 and newer???

Just want to check before I go to the fabricator and get a set made up.

thanks,

Just curious, what is the depth of the cutout on the rod?? and what is the line at the end of the rod for?? A notch of some sort??

No need to put a "flat" on the 3/8" (10mm) shaft.

Just carefully file a groove in the exhaust pipe cover guard. The groove just needs to be about 2mm deep...not enough to make a hole in the cover guard.

Just to make things clear, the filed groove is in line with the hole in the engine casing.... a little patience with a round file.

I am doing things a little different by using stands under the 3/8" cross rod with the bike on the centre stand.....no need to use a jack...The front wheel is initially lifted off the floor and a 50mm thick block place under the tyre.

I have made the stands and everything works well.

btw the way I drilled out the engine casing hole to 12mm with the intention of using a larger diameter shanked "pin"

A separate thread will come later complete with Pics

Lift

And yet another reason I wish I could weld. Very nice and professional looking.
