Hi guys

I'm looking for a stand or lift to make cleaning and maintaining my 2009 Griso 8v a bit easier. 
What do other owners do?

I have considered one of the pump up ones but wonder whether the sump is up to the job?

ideas/feedback very welcome

ABBA Skylift.
I made my own (because I'm a tight ba**ard)!



Small 'Cradle' part bolts on in place of the Centre-Stand.



Lifting Arm on Sliding part slots into that, Long-Travel Bottle Jack lifts the Sliding part.
By fitting Straps in various configurations, I can lift the front only, or the whole Bike level.
Without any Straps, just the rear lifts.

If your Garage/Workshop has decent Ceiling Beams, you could use a Chain/Cable Hoist to lift it.
Might not be so good for 'heavy' work though, as it would swing around easily.

Is it working height you need, to save your Back/Knees/sanity, or just something more stable/practical than the Side-Stand?

Depending on your mechanical skills, and tooling available, there's many DIY options.
Do some Google Image searches for DIY (or 'Home Made') Motorbike Stand/Lift/Table etc, for ideas.

More ideas here . . . 
https://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=92401.0

With the hole going through the Frame above the Pegs, that would be my preferred option for lifting.
I'm thinking a Bar going right through, so a few inches stick out either side, then use something like an over-sized Paddock Stand to lift.

Wow, some great ideas there. Will have a good look at it later and see which one will best suit.

Thanks for all your efforts Doc.
