I bought a lift from Harbor Freight that is very similar to the Craftsman. I learned very quickly (put a dent in the oil filter) that I needed some sort of adapter to provide clearance for the stuff hanging below the frame. I fabricated an adapter from 2" x 2" x 1/4" steel angle. The adapter has 1" x 3" vertical tabs that contact the frame providing clearance for the oil filter, engine, etc. It works great. I'll do some photos the next time I clean my Sabre (waiting for good weather and power ball mini to arrive) and post as a new thread. If I had to do it again I would use 2" x 3" x 1/4" 6061-T6 aluminum angle (ordered online) because it would be easier to fabricate.ddgman said:I am a new owner of a 2003 VT1100C. I recently bought a Craftsman Motorcycle Lift, but haven't had the guts to try it yet. Any advice (or pictures) on how to position the rails under the bike would be greatly appreciated.
