I purchased a motorcycle hoist which will lift 1500 lbs. It looks just like the one Smiitty has his FatBoy on. Question, I can't seem to find a level surface under the bike. My jiffy stand is in the way. When using a hoist, do you remove the stand? This just doesn't seem right. I tried to lift the bike, but the hoist is pushing against the stand. I don't want to remove the stand because then trying to lower the bike I'll have to have help on re-installing the jiffy stand. Are all stands in the way or I'm I up against something new with the FatBob. The bike is an 08. Has anyone tried to lift a FatBob with a hoist? I appreciate any help you can give me. I'm not going to lift the bike unless I'm absolutely sure pushing on the stand won't hurt. But like I said, it just doesn't look and feel right when I make contact with the hoist. I'm have never removed the stand and it works fine. Nothing has been changed on the bike.
