    Lifting TW

    Hello
    Just got done tightening my chain. Used a floor jack and a piece of 2x4 to lift the rear wheel. Pretty unstable.

    Wondering what others have come up with for a more stable platform to work on bike.

    And also would like to know if anybody makes a center stand that fits a TW?

    Thanks

    Get a old milk crate and attach a smooth top and there is your stand. That is what I use. Jim

    Have set a 2x8 on top of a milk crate to work on a honda crf 150 and broke the milk crate. The tw is quite a bit heavier. Looking for some good ideas for not a lot of money. I guess its time to break out the skill saw

    I like TWBrian's approach, see post #3. Here's another good low buck approach. See post #2.
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    rear paddle stand for rear work is great but font fork stands don't really work on the front so i use a standard 1500 lbs atv jack to lift the whole thing up when needed. I put a 2x4 on its 2" side and the other rests right infront of the starter motor. pretty stable with a strap around it.

    The Milk Crates that my uncle always used BITD was made out of metal. They are hard to find. The one I am using is for filing paperwork, pretty heavy duty. I think a cheap plastic one would break for sure. Jim

    Just make sure you check the chain tension with the rear wheel on the ground, not in the air.

    I use a floor jack with a board on it. I put a strap on each side of my rack to something heaver than the TW.
