This is my first H-D bike. Can someone tell me where the jacking points are on a 2020 road glide special? I have had Indian bikes and they jack from the engine case. Not sure about these HD’s.

No with a motorcycle lift not an auto jack. On the Indian TS111 bikes you use an adapter that sits on the arms of the lift to avoid hitting brake lines and clutch cable. You lift the whole bike up by lifting under the engine case. The bike cannot be lifted in its entirety by jacking against the frame.

You will still want to be aware of all the things you mentioned.
But the whole bike will go up lifting at the frame rails.

Frame rails and I use a small scissor lift under one of the wheels to stop wobble, but my lift may be inferior to yours.

All I was saying is the Indians are different in that you cannot lift against frame rails to raise the whole bike at one time. I have to use an adapter or blocks etc against the engine case.

I finally looked at the underside of this RGS I bought and see where I can lift it by jacking against rails. Thanks for all the replies.
