I asked my dealer that before I bought mine, he said its not a problem.
I have lifted mine quite a few times since new. There are two things I have found out that our issues with mine.
1: Because the bottom is not flat it will rock slightly side to side.
When this happened the first time I sat her back down right away.
Then lifted her just inches off the ground and rock it side to side, just to make sure she wouldnt tip over before I got straps on her.
2: Becuase of my trunk and no frame, there is not much movement room front to back for the jack as there was on my VTX. To lift her up balanced I have to put a 1x4 on my lift in the back. A side bonus of this, it also took out most of the rocking motion.
It doesn't matter how many times I have lifted any of my bikes my blood pressure always goes up whenever its time to put them back on the ground.
