I have used this type of motorcycle lift, not to actually lift the bike because you don't want to put that much pressure on the motor, but to stabilize it so you can work on it. Have to use some well placed 2X4's to get around the exhaust but it works.

Track stands that fit the axles work but there isn't many options the way the under side is formed.

Track stands that fit the axles work but there isn't many options the way the under side is formed.

I recently bought one of these to use for maintenance.
Takes a mighty heave, but it does the job.

That's what I was referring to above. After  borrowing a set (front and rear) from a friend I have wanted some for myself they really did work great. The set I used would either work with a pin through the hollow axle, which is great for adjusting suspension or from the bottom of the swingarm and forks allowing the removal of wheels and tires. I recommend a set like these with dual lifting abilities.

Ride safe, Ted

I built pin's that fit thru the hollow front or rear axles.

NOTE: I added screws thru the handle (where the pieces to fit together) to prevent the stand I bought from leaning inward.
          Solved the problem and lifts the bike well.
          But as I sed, a C-14 takes a mighty heave to get the bike up.

Ride safe, Ted

Hmmm.  Having to use "a mighty heave" has me thinking that an extension handle would be an easy to weld on mod.  Or at least a nub, that u could.slide and extension onto...

At this price I'm gonna have to jump on this...

Thanks ted......as always ur duh man..!!!!

Best extension would be to extend the existing handle at the connections.
I've already modified mine so it doesn't' rotate in when I raise the bike, so unsure of another mod at this time.

NOTE: Before doing the rotation mod, the load broke one of the wheels because of loading.
          If you get one, do the mod!
            ie: Superglue for my wheel, and Couple of sheet metal screw's to keep the joints for being loose.

Ride safe, Ted

Photo's sent, showing where I added screws.
Handle is the section of the stand that you push down on to raise the bike.
To add screws, put handle down with wheels flat on the ground, then drill holes and add screws.
This addition keeps the legs from leaning in when you lift the bike.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Motorcycle-Stand-Front-Rear-Wheel-Lift-Balance-Paddock-Swingarm-Spool/392187263073?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

NOTE: The longer "center section" of the handle is required to do the rear. Will probably also work with the front.

Ride safe, Ted

NOTE: Their add sez it can lift a 400 lb motorcycle. That is why a 600+ lb Connie requires a mighty heave.

The OxGord All-In-One Universal Motorcycle Lift Stand Kit is the ideal kit for motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATV, and other power sports vehicles. The stand and lift kit allows you to conveniently move your power sports vehicle from point A to point B or keep it at a standstill position for maintenance or storage. With built in wheels, the stand allows you to transport motorcycles that are up to 400 pounds. When not in use, fold the stand and store it in your vehicle, shop or garage. The package includes 2 support handles. The larger rear stand can accommodate tires up to 15" inches wide. The smaller front stand can accommodate tires up to 10" inches wide. Easy to clean material – simply wipe down with a cloth.
