Default J&S Jack lift placement advice needed

Received and assemble J&S Jack yesterday.

Where do you place arms under bike?

I have spacers on rear arm, placing rear arm along back edge of engine.

Front arm under floorboard attachment points, arm is approximately one inch in front of kickstand hinge point. Left front corner contacts lift front arm. Right front corner DOES NOT contact front arm. Advice needed please.

Bike feels secure on jack, much better than my buddies Sears lift, but I want both front corners on lift arm.

Trip...See another jack thread for pics and description of the adapter I made for lifting Cross bikes. If your XCT and my XR are the same underneath, here's how I position my lift: I slide it under from the right side, at about a 15 - 20 degree angle - back end of the lift angled toward the rear of the bike. The front arm touches the inside of the side stand mount and the rear arm is sufficiently under my adapter. Once you have your lift in its best position, mark the arms with masking tape, so the job will be a lot easier and faster the next times you go to use it.

Thanks Ricz, i've seen your pic several times over the past few months and think it is nice. I'm hoping I can use the J&S lift with both rubber spacers without making a wood spacer. Your description for how you position the lift was excellent. Will try that position later tonight.

Raised it fully and front right corner made contact with rail. With that said, it had a slight favor towards left rear, which is where Ricz block slim would come in handy. With jack under bike, front right wheel of lift (nearest foot peddle) was off the ground by 1/8" inch. I did have the down locks in place and bottle pressure received a bit. Bike seems steady on lift when lifted fully. Lift barely flexes due to wheel off ground at front right corner.

Not sure of by who but isnt there an engine guard (plate) available for this bike. If so would that eliminate this problem with the jack? Ablbeit pricey I'm sure.

Default RICZ, need to verify dimensions

Skid plate is too expensive for me right now. Just printed out Ricz adapter pictures and his dimensions.

RICZ, need to verify:
1" X 4", 3" long

Cut hole in center using 1" or 1 1/4" hole saw.
Cut board in half lenghtwise to have a 1" X 2" by 3" long piece; hole will be a little over 1" wide acros top.
Use dremel to increase hole depth until cutout is 1" from bottom of adapter?
Does this sound close enough?

Trip, add to that 2"high. The really important dimension is the 1" between the bottom of the round cut out and the bottom of the adapter. So the dim's are: 3" long X 2" high X 1" thick, with a round cut out 1" across. In other words, you would use a 1" hole saw.

Clear, will make one tomorrow or Sunday morning. Want the bike a little more level before changing rear tire. Have 10,006 miles when I parked bike tonight. Will but another 250 miles on it tomorrow, tire is about shot. I'm sure I'll have to replace it Sunday.

I usually get 17,00 to 22,000 out of a rear tire, but my XR is my first cruiser and I don't know what to expect. 10K is pretty good from what I've been hearing and reading. You did good.
