    when you say you built one out of 4 x 4's is that the stand or the jack?

    they have one that's used with a bar, that pries the bike up with a 4x4 also. it's somewhere in here...

    I use a Harbor Freight jack but I just jack her up enough to slide the wooden homemade stand under--btw, I never carpentered anything prior to building the wooden stand based on directions from this site; it's not as pretty as in the pics, but sturdy & inexpensive. Feel she's much more stable on a stand then on the jack while I work on her. I'm w/monte56 and I wouldn't use an alligator jack...too dangerous.

    However, lots of good options depending on exactly whatcha are looking to do.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Considering building the 2x4 stand myself, I only have one question. Is there room to reach the oil plugs when on the wood stand?? I know it will be more stable for more hefty work, just curious about the oil change part. Thanks.

    Pretty easy to put wheels on the wooden stand. 360 degree rubber wheel platforms at Ace Hardware - $6 ea - $25 total. I'm thinking about adding them to my stand. Trying to decide if it makes the stand too high - adds about 3 inches.

    I have found that an oil change is simpler, easier and faster to do just on the side stand. I can have it done before I can get the bike jacked up and on the stand.

    You should be able to change the oil without raising the bike at all. I am pretty sure that is how they say to do it in the manual.

    The drain pan i have is for a car, so its to high to slide under the bike. I've changed the oil, just was wondering if its doable on the wooden stand. It would be alot easier.

    here you go, maybe this will help.

    http://tech.bareasschoppers.com/reso...ools/#2xblocks



    in case you have difficulty with link, go to main site http://tech.bareasschoppers.com, pan down on left pane to engine section, she'll open up, go to changing oil. under the required tool you'll see "oil change blocks" click there, you'll see it. take care

    i'm also certain that you can do it from the stand, but you'll still have to drop the bike and put it on the kickstand to drain all of it out. so your pan will still not fit, just saying. with the blocks, they should. my $.02, no refunds...lol
