    Is there a safe way to get the rear wheels off the floor enough for easy cleaning? I have a bike jack and a floor jack but am not sure where a safe jacking point would be. Don't want to throw anything out of whack.

    I've used my bike jack and it works well. I use straps to tie it down so it won't tip, and center the jack under the case. You only have to lift it a tad so the wheel will rotate.

    My screw type scissor jack has been well worth the 60 dollars, it gets a lot of use.
