How to get bike on/off bike stand

Recommended Posts

Whats the best way to get the bike on and off a bike stand? Just picked up my new DRZ400S last week and starting to work on it, but it's too heavy to lift onto the stand. Any tricks?

Thanks in advance,

A few choices..

1: Put kick stand down, stand on left side,, lean bike toward you,, tip/angle stand underbike, push/lift bike and stand in to upright position.

2: stand on left side.. put stand on right. place your self in the middle of the bike,, left hand on bars,, right hand just behind seat. Pull the bike toward you with stiff arm,, lefting and pivoting on hip.. set on stand.

I'm 5'6" and both of these methiods work for me.

I'd say it weighs about 50 pounds.

I put a small piece of 2x4 under the kickstand. From the right side,

I push the bike away from me and with my right foot I

slide my milk crate under the bash plate and pull the

bike towards me. EZ stuff.
