I have the Progressive 440 shocks lowering my bike 1". Some of the nicer lifts I've seen just won't fit under my bike anymore. Any hope of finding a quality lift that will fit under a lowered V-Rod?

I have mine lowered front and rear. Even stock my Craftman lift did not fit under mike bike. I always have ran my bike up on 1X6's or 2X6's (I use 3, front/rear wheel and jiffy stand) and the lift has always went under fine:D

I love my craftman, I suggest 2X6 because once the bike is rolled up on the wood, it still continues to roll.:D

I always heard that the Larin lift (from Sam's Club) was lower profile from the Craftsman...

I just measured mine, it requires a minimum space of 3.38" to slide under your scooter. Measure at the frame tube adjacent to the jiffy stand on your bike...

I hope that this is helpful.

I also have the Costco lift and mine is lowered an inch and a half and can get it under the bike no problem. Have had it a year and a half now and have had no problems with it.

Did you get that one because it matches your bike? :D:D:D
Nearly. I actually ordered the normal spec lift, and I guy at the factory called me and offered me a deal on the upgraded lift because I queried how low it goes. (dreaming of a 240 etc etc.) The BigBlue one goes down lower so I said I'd go for it and I ordered the Bike Grab too (they sent me a silver one of these),its very usefull as no risk of dropping bike when using the lift. Both match my bike by pure coincidence.
