PostSubject: Lifting the S'Wing   Lifting the S'Wing I_icon_minitimeTue Feb 02, 2016 8:33 am

I.m using a Craftsman lift, the same one I used on my G'Wing, at this point by using a 3/4" plywood piece I've got 99% lift off and don't like it. If I move it forward I'll be into the body panels and I don't want to do that. Any suggestions on what to do? I'm thinking perhaps something to go between the lower panels to catch the frame to get a good solid vertical lift. I'd like to get both wheels off the ground and up where I can work on it safely and more comfortably. TIA

FWIW the skirts mount directly on the subframe. The subframe also surrounds the lower section of the fuel tank. I've used a 2 x 6 on a trolley jack to raise my SW enough to remove the front wheel many times, as well as to remove the entire front suspension twice, and a 3rd time to remove the steering stem to replace those bearings. No damages to the skirts, subframe or fuel tank. Admittedly, it's not the safest approach, but it seems to me that given the size of your Craftsman lift you could possibly enlarge that piece of plywood to encompass more of the scoot (front to rear), and maybe use some type of foam padding on the plywod if you are concerned about panel damage.

Thanks I'll enlist a helper and check that idea out. Ideally I want to do a one time lift, change both tires, brakes and drive belt.

I have successfully used lengths of Pool Noodle inserted between the Tupperware and the two lift arms to lift my scooters. Use some tape to keep them on the lift arms then position the lift appropriately under the machine to be raised. DO NOT run the engine with them in position !!! They melt easily ! Don't ask me how I know . Embarassed
