Scissor Lift

Is the plastic 'bash' plate suitable to lift the bike with a scissor lift, the type used for motocross / enduro bikes, that usually sit under the frame.
I would have to site the plate(s) that are on the lift across the both of the nuts that hold the bash plate on, for even pressure.
But will this be a suitable place to lift a GS and would the bike be balanced if lifted here.

I removed the plate and used as big a piece of wood as could fit direct to the sump to spead the load, but at a low level. I'd be a bit nervous about using the scissor type that raise the bike to about waist level unless I could strap the bike to prevent it toppling, just in case. It's a lot of weight to catch!

Too much wight over too small a pivot point.
I use a pair of front and rear paddock stands instead. Those have proven to be quite stable for me.

if you do not have a center stand, a portable jack is a good option for cleaning the chain etc.
