    No worries... Just blabbing my opinions

    Not to argue with all the reasons not to use the muffler as a jacking point but I was on the Drummer website (again) and he does claim you can still use his muffler for jacking. The bike. Off the ground.

    I think you may be OK jacking up one of his steel "converted from stock" mufflers.

    Unless you were able to lift by the endcaps on the SS one, I imagine you could do it in a pinch, if you're in "fix it or die Montana".... but I wouldn't do it.

    I'd do it too if i had too, and by the end cap is plenty strong enough IMO. Just saying I had the converted-from-stock one apart and the OE interior bracing thats at the arrow 'jack here' point at the front is all gutted, leaving the oval tube only. YMMV.


    MMMM hmmmm 34:19, The smell of varnished gas always reminds me of starting a brand new project and makes me sleepy

    I made my muffler and kept the supports. JIC. I did have a fuel pump go out. I made a U from a 2x8 IIRC, screwed a base onto it and it held the rear tire off the ground. Strapped the front forks to the trailer. Stable, no issues. Also used it to swap out front wheel bearings. At the time I didn't use the kickstand to pivot the bike as there was talk of weak kickstands and bikes falling over. Which Buell did replace on mine. Didn't fall over, but a recall came out IIRC.

    I have now gotten a set of stands and of course I now have 2 bikes.....Vicious cycle
