Can this bike be lifted by a 1500 lb. Capacity ATV/Motorcycle Lift ?
Without damaging anything underneath!
Just want to move it sideways against the garage wall.

I park my K1200GT (and make repairs) on a flatbed Handy motorcycle lift. You roll the motorcycle up a ramp and onto the lift. You should not use those ATV lifts on a K1200GT. You will damage the exhaust headers.

(I know someone who puts a K1200GT on the center stand, and then uses a small clamp to support the front of the bike on the headers. He does that to remove the front wheel and change the tire while traveling. It can be done, but I do not recommend it. NOTE: It is NOT the same as what @tbdomenz is asking. That is nothing like lifting the entire bike from underneath to park it sideways.)
