Not that I need too ...but for the far future...
Have a Craftsman M/C jack from my old & sold bike,will it work with the LT? do I need an adaptor ?
What do you use to lift the beast safely?

Lifts

The only way to put the LT on a lift that I know of is a drive-on platform lift.
Even with the plastic off there isn't any structural member to pick the bike up with.
There are lots of message threads discussing lifts for the LT on this site.
I have a Harbor Freight lift which does the job nicely (probably the cheapest one around).
Others have a Handy Lift which is arguably a better lift but more expensive, and there are others.

The craftsmans jack will not work.
As many here have gone to a platform lift
They are available from Harbor freight to Handy Lift
MAKE sure if you get one it will lift 1000 pounds.
