So I have a cheapo harbor freight lift. They work fine for bikes with frame tubes on the bottom, but the swing is plastic world down there. I want to jack up the swing to remove the forks (need new seals). How would you guys do this? Center stand and a small jack under that plate under the engine (assuming that can hold weight)?

With the centerstand down I use a scissors jack with a piece of 1" x 6" to distribute the weight. It's placed under the louvered panel at the bottom under the fuel tank. There is a sub frame at that location so you're actually not jacking up the tupperware.

Bike on the side stand place the HF lift opposite and one rail close to the sidestand, the first time I had help but now do it alone, pull the bike to you while pumping the lift up, adjust to a balance point and jack it up. I empty everything from the bike 1st but keep a full tank of gas to keep the the mass low. Also I like a strap or two or stability.
