Your biggest problem is jacking up the bike. Jacks don't fit under the low style V stars. What I do is put a few blocks together, wide and solid and about 12" high, little board as a ramp and reverse the bike up onto the blocks. Then take out the ramp, and a jack will fit under it. The flat box iron section that joins the left cradle to the right underneath the rear of the engine is the best place to jack. I'd recommend putting a bit of a plank between the jack and the steel though to protect your paintwork.

Lowering the tone since 1969
