    09 FX Ho raise engine

    This is hard to admit but I dropped a hotel Key down my handle bar gap and it ended up under the engine. Big brass tag and key. Then tried to use a magnet which also came lose and stuck up under the engine. The key rattles like crazy.

    I'm all out of ideas, except maybe raising the engine enough to get my hands underneath it. Any idea how much trouble it would be to raise the engine off the motor mounts enough to reach under?

    high pressure water from a hose or just ride it until it is reachable.
    Or maybe a brass magnet

    Assuming the 09 HO is the same as the SHO be aware that there are two rubber pads under the engine
