Cheap block and tackle uses nylon pulleys. I would only get all metal ones. A nice braided nylon rope is easy to work with and has many uses too.
I have never been able to pick up my TEX alone. It's extremely top heavy. When it goes over (without panniers), the wheels are off the ground. The TEX's center of gravity must be above the engine guards unlike a 1200GS. Picking it up is like doing a 600lb deadlift.
