I used an automotive scissor jack between the rear tire and tail tidy, stacked a couple of flash card decks and a book in between as I had no wood, and bungeed the rear brake while having it on a rear stand. For safety, I should have strapped the tail hanging from a ladder but luckily it was pretty solid and I didn't lose an arm.
An ABBA stand would be nice and I'm tempted to sell my bulky motorcycle lift for a Skylift. It just seems a little sketchy to have so much weight on a couple of small pins and would it damage the swingarm pivot? I'm guessing a steel rod through the pivot and placing it on jack stands would bend the rod.
