Assumed bike forward of gearbox to be heavier, WRONG Laughing
Have seen others with tie downs at the front, assumed was overkill WRONG Laughing
Don't have anywhere can affix front tie downs, so chanced me arm.
Majority of weight is rearward but there is a fine line, yep think I crossed that Laughing
Total bitch to try and lift the back end and refit the Becker stand.
It's bad enough just trying to fit the becker stand on its own and have it not slip off the bolt head and gouge into your side plate Shocked

On a side note who the f*ck designed the rear wheel fittment, anybody have his email address so I can verbally abuse them.
Found a bolt that fits other than a wheel bolt, just getting a mate to grind the head off to use the bolt as a guide.
As is use a block of wood to assist which is almost the right height.
Can see why people pay to have others remove the wheel for a tyre change, so they can chuckle as the f*cker curses and swears at that stupid design Laughing

Here have a laugh at my expense bom

Thanks Steak lets hope its only up from here Very Happy

I kinda knew that really I needed to use the wall support joist to just hold the bike at balance.
My stroked out no longer analytical brain needed to see it tip first Laughing
Werent no major drop just a slow decent.
Intending to strap front wheel to front ground anchor on the left unseen and my tool chest on the right just to keep things steady.
Looks a tad pissed but think floor is uneven.

yerp, GRiSO be an ass heavy ride.

Plan B seems to be working out better.

Maybe for Christmas I'll get a lift table with a front wheel holder/vice to keep 'er down.

Kiwi-Roy's lumber stand works for me [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

warning i built mine out of cheap (from a skip) uk-contruction timber so it is soft as sh1te and the lift rod is slowly ovalling out the holes - still; build a new one next year Smile
