My solution was this. Just fabbed up these aluminum pieces to fit between the frame and footpegs using longer bolts and a tee made to fit my floor jack. This only raises the rear as a center stand would and works great. I tried making an adapter to raise the whole bike, and it did, but was waaay too wobbly.

check e-bay for -motorcycle/atv lift-
not stand ,table ,wheel chock,etc= = = = just motorcycle lift!!!
under $200(should be) lifts 1500lb bikes ,(atv,lawn mower ,and even use mine as a saw horse before) , at bottom center of frame, off ground can choose height you want,,,, AND YES WHEELS WILL/CAN BE OFF TH GROUND,,, if you go ahead and get some $30 shop stool, that raises/lowers !!!!

Thanks galaxie. I've decided not to do it at the moment. I've contacted an ebay seller who sells plans for making your own. If the parts are cheap enough, I'll consider it.
For $300, it doesn't solve the problem of elevating the tires in the air - really the main reason I want to elevate the bike. To solve that would be like another 50-60 dollars and as you pointed out is unwieldy when lifting the bike twice.
I mean I'd love to have one, but I'm a college student and it doesn't have enough value for me at the moment...there are some other things I'd like to do to the bike first.

|efigalaxie||Coupons usually in the back of Motorcyclist or Cycle Guide etc. makes it $299. My local Harbor Freight kept not having one in stock. So I badgered them into selling me the display. They had had it forever. Fully functional, and fully assembled. Got my xj650 sitting on it now.|

I'm checking out ebay, and for the low low price of $5.99, you can buy a Harbor Freight motorcycle lift coupon. lol
The problem with Ebay is that shipping can get up to 200 bucks. I'd be willing to drive to get this thing if it is a good deal.

|efigalaxie||Actually, the lift table is very good. It gets the bike up where it is comfortable to work on. The issue is that there is still a need to lift up either end above and over the elevated surface of the table.|
