Use a ratchet strap from the shock bolt on the swing arm to the front of the frame.
You could put a piece of broomstick in between for making it possible to lift the bike up to.

Metal coat hangers or heavy gauge copper wire will work too and easy to bend. Won't take much/any load though other than the weight of the bike.

What I did on my S2 when the shock was out.

Good luck,

Rick
