Adjust the position of the Level accumulator and tighten the clamps. Depending on the position of the Level accumulator a minor cut out may have to be made in the belt cover.
4, The installation is now finished. The motorcycle is now in itís lowest level which will affect the angle of the motorcycle when itís parked on itís stand. Because of this, be careful so that the motorcycle do not tip over after removing the lift device. Rest the motorcycle on itís stand and turn the knob† on the Level accumulator (counter clock wise), the motorcycle will now raise to itís highest level. Sit on the motorcycle and it will go down to itís lowest level.
The level† can be set anywere between the highest and lowest level by shutting the knob when desired level is obtained.
In the case that the motorcycle is heavier than normal for some reason, it may need a little help to reach the highest position.
