Default Lifting a Kingpin?

Just bought a lift from HF, put it together and was going to lift the KP. Were do you position the lift arms? There really isn't a frame rail on the left side of the bike. I placed the lift arm just forward of the oil filter, but that seems to far forward still. The front comes up but the rear tire stays down...

I see you have a Tour. Are your bags and trunk full of stuff causing the back end to be heavier?

I have noticed this on my XC. Then if I take the bags off the bike comes up evenly.

Hadn't thought of that. I'll empty them and try again ;-)

Buy a package of four rubber furniture protectors, and place one at each of the four contact points between the lift rails and the engine frame rails.
