I got a pit stand/lift whatever you call it. It look like the MG approved one. The problem is it interferes with the exhaust and it is a stock exhaust. Am I supposed to remove the exhaust where the two pipes go into one?

I have one and if its the Becker-Technik GRiSO Lift you shouldn't have to remove anything, its designed specifically for the GRiSO.
Here's the video.

I had the same issue with my MG lifting stand for my GRiSO (Also stock exhaust)
I moved the lifting bobbins to the other spot on the and the stand no longer hits the U bend in the exhaust pipe.

What bobbins? I ain't got no stinkin bobbins. Where can I buy ones that will work on the GRiSO?

Cycle Gear stores or almost any Jap bike shop, 8mm bolt for mount usually.

Re Bobbins.

My MG lifter came with bolts and (bobbins) adapters to fit the bike lift.

That's a little different from the Becker-Technik lifter, isn't it? What make is it? Got a link?

Gday Pete

The lifter in the pictures comes from Moto Guzzi.
Fairly sure it was an option from the dealer, or the dealer had them available.

I have the Becker one. It comes with no bobbins because they are embedded in the lifter. My opinion is that the MG design is much more efficient because the positioning of the Becker is not easy and random.

Of course the video does not show the problem and it looks easy to manipulate but it is not the case.

I wouldn’t recommend the Becker’s.

There is apparently a couple of different models that look the same. Mine I bought used on e-bay and it was advertised as a GRiSO stand yet the width of it comes directly in the center of the pork chops. Won't fit inside or outside. So I guess my solution will be mount some bobbins outside the pork chops and cut and widen the stand to fit. My Pit Bull stand for my stornello is VERY difficult to lift a V& with and obviously they're much lighter than a GRiSO

I have inserted bobbins on the pillion footrests, and have an enlarged stand which lifts the rear wheel. Another stand inserts into the steering head to lift the front.

But I hardly use this system on the GRiSO. I much prefer to place the bike into a front stand against a wall, and then use a small jack under the rear shock. Strops are extended from the ceiling as a safety measure.

I own and enjoy having the Becker. One nice thing is that it is very compact to store (though you need a separate pipe for a handle).

Though I agree it is fiddly to put on the bike, the bother isn't enough to make me wish I had the MG item.

Interesting discussion. My preferred method of lifting, I've shared (bragged) with you before (see below), but I was thinking that one of these compact lifters might serve well as a center stand for those long stretches when the GRiSO isn't being ridden enough because Esther and Jellybean want to go everywhere in the sidecar. What's a mother to do?

Well if it's like my house Jellybean gets first choice, Ester next and then the GRiSO may sit another week Smile
