That's usually not a concern.Is there anything to worry about with oil running into a part of the engine or transmission that it does not normally flow into when the bike is upright....?
Just asking, as I really dont know.
Good eye!Thanks for the pictures.
When they said to "lay the bike over" I thought they meant ALL the way over. And then, I couldn't figure out how to keep from scratching up SOMETHING.
I see that the center stand is deployed. Do you need to deploy the center stand in order to keep the bike far enough over to get the wheel off?
Here's a photo of my gal with "her feet in the stirrups":If you want to take both wheels off at the same time you can put it up on center stand. Tie off the center stand so it can't fold up. Jack the front wheel off the ground and remove. Lower the jack and rest the forks on a block - the rear will come up high enough to remove even with a trailer hitch installed.
DON'T FORGET TO TIE OFF THE CENTER STAND.

I added the straps to the center stand after taking this photo (!)
