Bike Support for Spline Lube

By Darrell Classen
April 1998

I use a floor jack under the engine to raise the rear end up off the ground. With the saddle bag rails off I slide a saw horse under the rear end of the bike. This makes a very stable work area.

As a precaution I have eye bolts bolted through the rafters and tie downs going to the handle bars. The angle of the tie downs is not quite 45 degrees. I have not tested to see if the bike fell over whether the eye bolts would hold the weight as the eye bolts are rated at 400 lbs each.

I have 171,000 miles on my 1990 K75RT and still have used up only 1/3rd of the clutch.
