None the less, glad you got it out. Good luck on the clutch.

Oh, and this is how I supported the bike!

Even it I had the jack under it, I doubt it would work well. It it too big and would be in the way. A small scisor jack would work better. The block I used is quite stable.

I have an overhead chain lift, scissors jack (too concerned with stability), and a regular (Panther) bike lift, but I didn't want to tie it up. I have several more bikes coming in over the next few days and wanted to keep it free. The Craftsman jack will allow me to move the whole front end section around if I have to. It's actually pretty stable... especially with the support straps snugged down. I have a little dolly with full swivel wheels I can put under the front wheel to provide extra support if needed.

Fun and games, and life goes on.
