After attempting to roughly assemble the SR250 on the floor of my garage, and then again on a standing work bench, I quickly realized my need for an assembly table. Companies like Harbor Freight offer cheap hydraulic options, like this, but it's still $420 and in all reality, I'm probably not going to need the hydraulic function very often.
Instead, I decided to build my own and came across this DIY. I ran out to Home Depot and picked up the lumber, screws, and some eyelet tie-down hooks for about $70. I then grabbed this $20 wheel chuck from HF.
Cutting and assembly probably took a total of 4 hours.
And there's the finished product. Not bad for $90. You can see the tie-down hooks inserted into the 4x4 legs for strength. The $20 wheel chuck works fine with a couple tie downs, just don't expect it to hold your bike up on it's own. HF does have one that will do just that for a higher price.
The table stands 30" tall and it's a great height for both standing and sitting work. Now that I had an adequate surface, I started roughly assembling the SR250. I'm doing this to check clearances, plan out a spot for the battery box, and start planning out the new wiring harness.
After that, it'll get torn back down and everything will be getting it's final finishes.
