This may have already been discussed here, and if so I apologize for bringing it up again. I drove my 09 black cherry Wing home last week and am thinking of adding a belly pan, but I'm wondering if it would be compatible with a WalMart, or any brand for that matter, bike lift? It looks to me like the belly pan extends below the frame of the bike a bit which would interfere with the arms of the lift and might deform the pan. Am I off base on this? Thanks in advance.

After you put 10 to 20 thousand miles on your bike with the belly pan it will look like it has had the crap beat out of it. I wouldn't worry much about your lift causing a problem.

You really aren't resting on any frame. You're resting on the sump. The belly pan just covers it up.

Pit Bull lift here also and works great, you actually need the belly pan to use the PB.

FWIW with the weight and size of a wing I would only use a Pit Bull. I did have one of those $87 cheapies from Sams club, it lifted the bike but damn I felt it was unsafe. That lift s now in the basement with the Cushman scooter on it ( it seems to be built for it)

My2cents.
Spend the dough and get tha PB!

The belly pan actually is needed for the PB.
I use a sissor jack under mine every time i clean or polish front rim there is enough dents & scratches one more dont matter after 60,000 miles enjoy it and dont worry about it.
