I notice your jack under the sump but a stand as well.
Can one use just the jack ?
Unsure how sturdy that oil pan may be ?
( you have a carpeted garage ? Your bike sure is clean ! )
I primarily use the becker bike stand and use the jack to lift the front end.
As paulbrice says you will need something at the back as the GRiSO is tail heavy.
Pic shows bike on jack with becker stand or axle stand not supporting back end, its there but not mounted.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Seeing as do all my own work and my garage belongs to a local authority, is not heated has no mains.
In the winter the ground can get cold enough to seize your bones, hence the cheap carpet scrap cut off.
Plus who wants to roll around on a rippled concrete floor when you can have carpet
I went thru the bike when I bought it last October, November until February did all the service work plus some
maybe thats why it looks so clean
