Re: new lift for clutch
I have removed the transmission twice for clutch work, and the engine once. Never felt the need for a lift, and in fact think some of the work is harder on a lift than without. I found working on the floor was not difficult (and I was not a young person when I did it). To me, the expense of a lift, and then the storage of it was not justifiable. A lift certainly is not "needed" in any way whatsoever.
I am now 71, and if I still had an LT and it needed work, a lift would not even be considered.
I just do not want anyone thinking they "need" a lift to work on the LT. That is false promotion for the lift suppliers.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
