What is everyone using for bike lifts on the Challenger?
As there is no frame under the motor, a regular bike lift is a bit scary, as the bike rocks and wobbles too much for my liking.

I've been wondering the same thing. I dont like how unstable mine was the 2 times I lifted it.

Back in the day, Pitt Bull had an adapter for Harley Dyna models. I've sent them a question to see if they will be making an adapter for the Challenger.

This is the reply from Pitt Bull.

"Les, we have not looked at the Challenger yet. The nearest dealer to us is in Nashville, which is 2 hours away but I am going there today. If time allows I will go by and check them out. They look a lot like a Victory and we lift those."

I've had my Pitt Bull for over 20 years and I hope they make an adapter for the Challenger. If I find anything further, I'll make sure to post.

Plus one for the Big Blue lift with a Chief (and it lifts Mrs d's Bonneville, too) - ideally I need to make a top plate for each bike, but it's not difficult. Crucially, the lift goes low enough to get under the Chief with a piece of inch-thick plywood on the lift.

I'd be surprised if a similar approach couldn't be used on the Challenger.

I don't strap it down for oil changes or regular washing, but I would if I was doing serious work or removing the wheels. It has a little wobble if you shake it, but not even close to being dangerous.
