Mext doors Mrs bush. Bit scabby tbh, seen better.

Back to the op though! Jack under the motor with a block of timber to spread the weight.

not your hedge ...so is it the wife's bush?


And does she trim her bush -=Or leave it unfettered, like an hirsute rhododendron laying waste to the meadow?

Jeez I gotta log off! I got the Montys tonight! LOL
Question everything.

Sussed it! Mi mate's comin round in a bit. He's got a frame thing to lift engines out of cars, so we're using that to take weight on headstock. Thanks for your help.

I wouldn't have lifted there either Mark,those subframes are too weak.

The Tuono version is reinforced as without the support of the lower bodywork it's prone to breaking under normal riding conditions if the ordinary Mille one was fitted

I lifted under the top yoke
