Lift points on C10
« on: February 03, 2018, 09:00:09 am »
Hey ya'll.

95 C10 with 30K miles.

I have a few things I want to do. Tires, Brakes, Fork seals, Fluid changes, peg lowering, and anything else I come across along the way.

I have a hoist in my garage that I use for working on tractors and other equipment.  It's heavy enough to lift the entire bike...

Is there any safe spots that I can hook to in order to raise the entire bike? I figure this would be easiest since I intend to have both front and rear pulled apart at the same time.

I lift mine just enough to get it on the cstand when Im working on it I use the cross piece under the seat It picks up the backend Then set it down on the lift rear is up enough with the cstand and Ill take a small jack and use it under the front of the engine to do front end work
Thought I had some pictures somewhere on this thing
I have no idea about anything.

I have used my engine hoist to lift mine several times.  I pull the fuel tank, and the seat, put a heavy-duty nylon ratchet strap under the frame tubes at the headset, and another under the frame tubes at the aft end of where the seat mounts.  There are also a couple of bosses with holes in the frame just where the rear sub-frame bolts on, that willl accept long bolts (I think it's 5/16 diameter) where you could attach straps or chains.  The biggest issue is it wants to swing around in mid-air, so you need to brace it somehow.  A couple of short strings to the hoist to keep it from swiveling around will help.

I was thinking straps through the frame as well.

Sounds like a solid plan.

Jake, I pull the seat and tank and slide a large screw driver thru the frame above the air box but under the metal tube Have to bend it down a pinch), then I hook my engine hoist on the large screwdriver and lift away. Once it's up, I secure it to keep it from swinging and tilting.
