Default J&S Motorcycle Jack -- ROCK SOLID!

I got my J&S Motorcycle Jack in today, and all I can say is WOO HOO! This thing is rock solid, and is able to get under the sporty clearing the kickstand and spring, unlike the Sears yellow jack I got last Sunday. Here are the pictures.






















This is not a light duty or a light weight jack. Shipping weight is 88 lbs. I'm really comfortable with the bike on the jack. I even climbed up on the bike, without the straps, and the bike was solid!

I'd recommend it to anyone. Here's the website;

http://www.jsjacks.com/products.htm

GREAT service, too. I called about 5:45 PM on Monday to order it. It arrived today (Friday) at about 5:00, via UPS.

Nice pics. Does it have "stops" to prevent weight of the of bike on the hydraulics (sp ?)?

Absolutely, actually double stops...one on each side..with 5 different positions.

No, the pipes are almost 3/4" above the rail of the jack.


I forgot to say, this jack lifts the bike right off the kickstand. I don't need to be on the bike at all when I lift it. I just slide the jack under, screw down the stops and start pumping with the foot pump. I haven't been brave enough to not at least have my hand on the handlebar while doing this, yet, but when you're ready to put it down, you jack it up off the stops, flip the stops up, and VERY CAREFULLY open the release valve so that the bike is moving dowdn slowly.....then it just sets the bike back down onto the kick stand. It's awesome! The bike's been up and down about 10 times since yesterday. It's sittin' about a foot off the ground now!

$39 shipping. Don't let the UPS guy get away with delivering it anywhere but to your door. It's 88 lbs.

Hey Beuz,

I'll bet they would ship to France, but it would probably cost as much as the jack!

I was in France last year. We started our trip in Monte Carlo, and then took the train through the beautiful french country to Paris, just northeast of where you are! I went to one of the Harley shops in Paris and met up with a local HOG member. That wouldn't have been you would it?

Je parlais francais au pu. (I probably spelled that wrong!)
