Lifts sure are expensive. why not buy a rear stand? or did you mean rear stand and not lift?

how many chucks can a wood chucker chuck, if a wood chucker could chuck wood?

Straps with an overhead beam will do the trick.

You can pick up one of these for about $100. If your headers run below your block they will most likely need to be removed.

if the little hole that's right in front of the rear set goes all the way through the bike, just slide a rod through the bike and set it on 2 jack stands placed on both sides of the bike... you'll have to use the rear stand to get the bike off the ground initially. that's how we changed out my rear shock...

You can use a car jack under the bike and the block... it's actually purdy easy to do.

Well lean the bike ovr on the kickstand till the rear starts to come off the ground. Use a strap on the right side to tie it down to prevent it from tipping over. i have changed out a many schocks like this and works quite good.

Car jack on the rear tire and against the subframe. It will "lift and seperate" the frame from the swingarm. Either that or car jacks under the solid mount footpegs. (If you have them.)

I've used both approaches. About the same level of effort.
