hmmm, thought you jacked up the bike with no blocks, now theres blocks under the stand?
I used blocks under the frame on each side of the jack. not the side stand. for safety after its up don't wan't it going over when pulling wrenches on tight bolts. don't need to do that if only changing oil.

RE: Motorcycle stand/lift
Hey @OldePhart, had my daily spark of insight, done for the day now, hah, if main issue for you is to put the bike upright how about one of these, they have a variety of them to pick from too.

RE: Motorcycle stand/lift
Actually, if you're talking about my "shed into bike garage" the main objective is the wheels under the lift so it can be like one of the old locomotive turntables to spin the bike around to face back out the door...

RE: Motorcycle stand/lift
ahhh, yeah be back to the hydraulic lift, it is on wheels, just would need to mock up some type of quick release clamps to hold it to the stand, i tied mine to it while was working on it, good good para cord with slip knots.

RE: Motorcycle stand/lift
wait! @OldePhart 3/4 ply about only 2ft wide and length of th bike with a short ramp with the front wheel chock, only about 6 swivel casters underneath front middle and back with a bolt to the floor in the middle to stabilize for a swing point, if worried about weight could put 2x2 frame underneath for attachment or even steel L down the length. do a cut out on both ends of the ply with a short gap for the ramp should swivel pretty easy. i know another spark its a miracle!

that's a very good idea. I will see what I can come up with for a clamping device.

Can you use a device like that to store the bike in an Upright position as well? If it is upright I can fit both my bikes and my car in the garage, might be too tight if the Vstar has to lean on the kick stand.
