Here is another way to work on an engine or entire bike. A transmission jack from Harbor Freight that holds 400 lbs. I bought them on sale for about $40US, but they are higher than that now. They are flat on both top-sides, but with a V in the middle that helps accept a Ducati engine. MikeV

I have a Yamaha hydraulic stand that I use for both my VMX bikes and Ducatis.

It is alloy so easy to drag about, it also has springs holding the foot pegs that tension when you lift it.

Ducati Performance have an engine trolly/stand in their catalogue which I imagine is plenty of $$, sooooooo I copied it.
252
$20 for 2 scissor jacks from an auto wrecker, $3 for the castors, my Dad had some angle iron in his shed, a bit of measuring around the bottom of a Pantah motor, some work with a hacksaw and a welder and bob is your mother's brother. Sorry don't have a pic of it in action.
To use - simply place trolley under your motor, wind-up into place, remove engine bolts etc and wind down jacks with said motor, wheel motor to quite corner of the garage to gather dust for 6 months as you work on other things.
I probably should have hit it with some rattle can paint, but I never got around to it...

Cheers,
John
