Please don't laugh

Okay so I bought the SATO lowering link 'cause I'm a short arse with duck's legs and I need to ride this thing rather than just look at it.

So, now I need to take the weight off the original ride height link for a few minutes while I disconnect it and replace the old inner part with my shiny new SATO bit.

What do you guys think about using a couple of scissor jacks one each side placed carefully directly under the footpeg (front) mounting plates and raised in unison to take the load?

Crack go the mounting plates?

Alby's bike hits the deck?

Or...."Sure Alby that will work..."


Alright, laugh if you must about now...

Yep that's how I did it. I loosened the dogbone connector (2 Allen screws) prior to lifting then let the rear stand down onto the two jackstands.

Art has the technique. Use the rear stand to lift her up, put the supports under the pegs (you can use good old jack stands too), then lower the bike onto them.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

It's not entirely necessary Alby' ...but some of the family have turned their foot pegs upside down (for this type of rear end work) so the jacks are well clear of the frame and they have a more stable resting position.

Using jack stands is the best method

Agreed , flip the foot pegs upside down and use jack stands or footpeg stands (kinda the same thing)

I'm thinking that the belt and suspenders approach of using stands and restraining with straps from a rafter may save some swearing later. It would be a shame to knock such a gorgeous machine off the stands.

Well thanks all for your ...

A: advice and

B: restraint on the laughter....

I like the straps from the rafters as safety backup too but my bikes live in a single car style sealed like a room garage with a regular style ceiling.

I think i'll go with the scissor jacks / jack stands while steadying things with the original rear stand and a couple of burley lads just in case the worst case scenario eventuates (timberrrrrr)

I am relieved that consensus seems to point toward the strength of the pegs / peg mounting plates being suitable.



Now if i can just get some time off work to tinker with me favourite toy....28 days on / 3 days off in the last month...

Most likely you have wood rafters behind drywall. They would be easy enough to locate. Using heavy gauge Lag Thread Eye Bolts paired with your strap ends would still be a smart option. Afterwards, leaving them in place is your best bet given your work schedule... If and when removed, patching the left over holes would be a simple. --Knowing the hooks are in place is a comfort for future project safety.
