Yes, I was meaning jack. My bike does have a center stand. Per the reviews and comparison on YouTube, J&S jacks are the best in the business. The $560 price tag also says that. Which is why I wanted to know what others are using. Thanks for the info.I assume by "Lift" you are referring to a jack,and not a pneumatic table lift.
I think one of the commonly available bike jacks is fine. I don't know your brand, but if it is good quality, and has safety features, it should do as well as any. Just make sure it is secure and the bike is well seated on it. I strap mine to the jack and use the outriggers or floor bolts. Go slow and remember - the securing strap tightens as you pump the bike up.
I have a 2013 F6B as well. The best investment you can make, is the center stand, if your bike isn't equipped with one already. I use it for tire changes, oil changes, and parking, in some places. $100. Ain't bad for the multiple benefits. Good luck!
If you're spending $560 already, why not bump in another $500 or so and get a table lift?Yes, I was meaning jack. My bike does have a center stand.

A table lift can be used for other things as well, like when I had to replace the frame on my Toro mower:It's the battle between a list for the best tools, versus the limitations of the budget! I have always used the standard type of bike jack, priced reasonably, but not too expensive. One good thing about it - you spend big bucks, you'll pull more maintenance to justify the expense!
