Lifting a TDM 850 MK1 3VD

So my next phase of work involves:
Installing the stock sprocket replacing the freeway flyer one that the PO put on.
adjusting the chain afterwards
replacing the mono shock

all of these thing require lifting the rear wheel.. sadly the bike does not have a centre stand, nor have I found an aftermarket one that fits so I need to lift the bike some other way. I have a craftsmen ATV floor jack I got from an inmate but when I looked I realized that the exhaust is in the way. I suppose I could remove the exhaust to lift the bike but there has to be a better way I am not seeing. Any Ideas anyone?

I change a lot of tires. Many bikes have no center stand. I have
several wheel lifts, bike lifts/etc, but find that using the side stand
down along with a small jack is often easier/faster. Sometimes I put a block
under the side stand to reduce lean when the bike is jacked up. There's usually
a jacking spot at or near the right foot peg for getting the rear wheel off the
ground, and exhaust pipes just behind the front wheel to raise the front....
Thin wood pieces/rags/etc prevent marring of bike parts....

Do you have a place to throw a rope over a rafter or tree limb? One of the things in the garage I use infrequently is a come-along rachet hung from an eye in a ceiling rafter but when I do need it it is very convenient.
