Raise bike with jack under cat?

Post by Clogan » Mon Apr 16, 2018 1:17 am

While my SDGT was at the dealership for the brake recall work, I happened to get a glimpse into the service area. I was surprised to see my bike's rear wheel being lowered to the floor with a scissors type jack under the catalytic converter. I meant to ask the tech about it, but forgot when I got the chance. Anyhow, does anyone know if it is generally acceptable practice to elevate the bike's rear wheel by jacking under the cat? Sure would make chain maintenance easier!
