Ditto...check American Iron magazine and they always have Harbor Freight coupons. One of them will be for a yellow 1500lb capacity motorcycle jack. Works great and is more than able to handle a Sporty.....

Bit late for a thread that started in 06 but this is a good review of good vs crap in a jack. No doubt made by J&S. If you got it, flaunt it.

Got mine from Supercheap. Does the job, cost $150 when I bought it. Look for the ATV lift.

Picked my Harbor Freight jack up for about $59 too. I used a coupon from American Iron magazine. I realize there are better jacks, but for a 400+ pound Sporty, the Harbor Freight is great. I just can't spend $400+ when $59 and change will accomplish the same.
