The only other option to change the oil requires two overhead hoists and the steps below.
1. Lift it up with the front wheel until the back wheel is about 1' of the ground. 2. Attach the 2nd hoist to the rear wheel and lift it until the bike is upside down. 3. Remove the dip stick and let the oil drain from the fill hole.
