I ordered a Gsxr 1k shock for my bike 2 years ago and never got around to doing the install. A buddy of mine was supposed to find a piece of metal that I could slide through the frame of my bike so I could pick it up and set it on jack stands, but he never did and then ended up moving. I know there are great write-ups, and I don't need help picking my shock or any of those details, the problem I'm trying to solve is how to lift the bike and have it be steady enough for me to do this kind of work. Like I said I have 2 jack stands and a decent jack, but where would I find a piece of metal to go through the frame, and how thick would it have to be etc? I tried looking in the FAQ but a large majority of the links in there showing how people did this, are broken! Thanks for any help!
