At the rear of the lower frame their is a bash plate (hanging slightly below frame) spanning between two lower frame members. Is it OK to support bike on this with jack? ((Using Craftsman jack with two rubber-coated beams spread 8" (i.s.) apart.))

thx

I use the same jack and it's never caused me any problems I'm aware of. I always try to get the bike balanced from front to back and wherever that happens, that's where the jack goes.

I always jack on that bash plate. On the new frame bikes, there is really no way not to using any of the standard lifts (put bull, J&S, craftsman, etc).
No problems for me so far.

would that be the red jack? or the yellow jack? I'm told the color is important!

:D

I have no problem jacking mine up on the base plate, raise it to wash it and store for winter in full upright position on the Pittbull all winter long

Me too...but a yellow jack. Both wheel off the ground, small block of wood to keep front from swinging - and jack lock bar in place!
X10000! VERY IMPORTANT! Jack lock bar in place! and kickstand down!
