    Thanks for the advice guys! I'll definitely look into acquiring those tools. What about a lift table? They don't seem too expensive.

    there are a few that others have "home built" on here. And of course there is always the Harbor Freight model that works pretty good, or a good used one on craig's list possibly.

    Never used a lift table before. All the general maintenance items are fairly easy. I use an anti fatigue mat in the garage to cushion the garage floor when changing oil or lube / adjusting the chain.

    If it doesn't have the center stand, get it. Lift table might be helpful but most of your maintenance can be done just sitting on the center stand. Also, a good set of torx sockets are helpful, I find.
