What do you use and what would you not use to raise and support, to enable easier maintenance on your Rocket3 ?
I’m thinking I will need to paint the diff
(Flaked OE paint ) & lube splines in particular. But also , just curious?

I installed this: Jack-Be-Quick | JBQ Rocket III / R3 Lifting Bracket It only weighs a few lbs. so I leave it mounted on the bike. Makes it very easy to use a standard bike lift to perform the kinds of maintenance you need to do.
Jack Be Q is well worth it by giving you a much less tippy lift point to lift from. Have scissor jack which I use along with a sportbike type lift on the front tire to stabilize the bike or removing the front tire.

In the UK - If you just want it upright - Becker Becker-Technik

If you want to get it up in the air - maybe a EazyRizer Big Blue Professional - They do R3 mounts.

Big Blue lifts and is secure, raise with cordless drill or socket set. Other benefit is it doesn't fill garage.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 GT...Black.
I have a Becker...easy to install and take off...lifts the bike an inch, maybe, off the ground so either front or rear wheel is airborne..easy to stow away as comes apart with a turn of the locking screw.
The pins that go thru the holes under the bike are 8mm so dont be jumping on the bike while its suspended or these pins may bend.
Otherwise its real good.
P.S. Looks like the hole is 13mm now...
