Here it is from my original post.
I was asked "What's the purpose of the hole through the frame?, so I had to come up with an answer
The Luigi hole on my 2007 had a washer welded in each end, it was simply a mater of a few strokes with a rat tail file and the 1/2" pipe slipped right in
If your hole has no washers you will need to add some form of spacer to keep the pipe in the centre, perhaps even layers of masking tape wrapped around the 1/2" pipe.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Dimensions, 1/2" pipe is 13/16" OD
Re plate dimensions. depending on your shock settings you may need to modify the length slightly, the right side plate should fit in place without touching the ground, the left side plate is 3" shorter
The plates are made from regular 6 x 2 lumber, I tried 3/4" ply but it's no where near as solid.
Right Side Lifting Plate Attached - I have Knight Design lowered pegs but the plate will work with originals.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Then it's simply a matter of lifting by the left bar and under the seat standing the bike up on the right hand side plate.
at the same time slipping the 3" block under the left side plate with your foot to bring them even.
The back wheel is about 1/2" from the ground and it's very stable[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
If the intention is to remove the swing-arm for greasing the Left hand side foot-peg plate is removed first, this gives access to the swing-arm pivot bolt and the two pinch bolts that lock it in place, these are behind the round cover you see.
To bring it down again deploy the side stand, tilt the bike over to the right, kick the block out, then lower back onto the side stand.
