Lift Adapters

I posted a pic a while back about my lift adapter for the DL650. Here's the pic again:




I had forgotten to take pics of the adapter. I have them now and here they are:







Here's the adapter on the bike:







I also made one for the KLX.







In use:

So do you leave the adapter on the bike? Seems to me you could be onto something...
Put the male post on the lift instead and make a hole in the bottom of a skid plate (with appropriate re-enforcement)
Build a 2" hitch adapter for your vehicles...

You can ride your bike up and clip it onto your car's back bumper or onto the lift at home. No tiedowns required

20 years from now every bike will come with a "Ranger Mount" built in

I will get some more pics of the lift and create a separate thread in the Garage forum on my elevator/lift. There seems to be some interest in my shop farkle

Very nice, and nice floors! Laminate removed from your kitchen?

Started on the opposite side tonight after moving the rest of the stuff over to the finished side.





Looks good from a distance.



But lots of gaps close up.





All the gaps are now filled, and more mud applied. I sanded some and sponged other parts. I'll take photos of the finish sand tomorrow. I was too tired to run up for the camera.

Tomorrow I finish sand and start the primer paint.

I really like the tool box cart. I've been redesigning my workbench in my head for awhile now and never thought of using square tubing. This way I'd get a new bench and be able to play with my welder!!
