Re: Bike lift

I've got the exact same lift.  Bought it to do tire changes on my son's KLR
250.  It works fine for that, but the KLR has frame tubes running under the
engine.  I don't think it would work so well on the BMW.  You need sort of a
flat surface on the bottom of the bike for the lift and the oilhead is
irregular underneath.  Also, much heaver.  I just use the centerstand on my
RS for tire and oil changes.  You'll probably be better off exchanging for
