Support the bike for rear suspension service?

How do you folks support the bike and rear suspension to disassemble the rear suspension for greasing? I have a lift table with a wheel vise, but I can't lift her by the swingarm, obviously.

TIA

ATV/Motorcycle jack under the skidplate...Since you have a table, use a bottle jack or car jack under the skidplate area, while you have the front end tied down to allow the rear to raise.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
