I was wondering if anyone had used a hoist and the "hole in the frame" approach. What about the plastic trim rings? Ever break one? I've heard they are a little pricy.

Yes. I have. I took the side plates off first. My method was a bit "agricultural". I bought an industrial shed door track end door wheel assy and bolted it to the roof of my shed. From the wheel assy I used a come along with some rope from it to a shovel through the frame. In time I will get a nylon bush/s made up to sit in the frame so I can use a lifting bar through the frame but stll leave the side plates on.

That picture is of my 1100 which has a bushing, or washer welded inside the tube so the lifting bar never comes in contact with the chrome plastic ring. I've posted this before, but here's my solution to the problem that I came up with in order to fly my 1200SE.

A custom lifting bar with rods tack-welded on top. The notch in the end is positioned Top Dead Center when the bar is hidden inside the tube.

As you can see, the bar runs through the center of the tube and doesn't touch the plastic bezel ring.

Here are some dimensions if you want to make your own:

Hi,

I'm using a "Becker" stand, from the beginning I had my G12 (2010).
Bought it in Germany, right from his site.
And secure it with the same tool, the other way round:

I did rebuild the adaptors, I don't like to tilt my bike just at 2 bolt heads...

Ad B

Could you share close up photos of the rebuild of the adaptors please? Would be much appreciated as I am just considering to buy this stand but am slightly concerned after having done some research.

Best wishes
Tom

I just came across this one which looks very similar...really wish either of these companies would make one for the GRiSO.
