Default J&S floor jacks

Anyone use this jack on the xct and is it as stable as the Harleys on their videos..?

See the name K&L Supply Co. Fat Jack, just for INFO and more choices...

http://www.jpcycles.com/product/920-076

Is the FAT jack i did not buy it from JP but please compare prices, do not take the normal or slim jack,

I replaced the thin rubber with the 8 or 12 mm rubber coz our engines are V-shape.

It's a great jack, I use a small (1" thick) block of rubber on the back left contact point to keep the bike level on the jack. You'll have no regrets on this jack

I've had one for 9 years and 4 different bikes. I just had to replace the hydraulic jack and still going strong. Like was said, I use a rubber piece on the rear clutch side corner to make the bike level and stable. Works great for me and never have to use straps. Jack it up, move it around, climb on it, whatever you need to do.

Just a question, that J&S jack is painted, if it gets wet coz of washing the bike, or cleaning the garage, does it rust or bladder paint off after 9 years ??

My one is electrolyzed, no rust exept on the spindle, but a bit of greas will fix that ...

Moving around your bike is a good feature ....

I don't know about 9 years, but I have had mine for 3 years and use it for everything. I wash the bike (hose and bucket) with the bike on the jack and I have not had a single problem.

I've also been looking at the j&s jack, primarily to be able to change my own tires. Have any of you used it to remove
the front and/or rear wheel? Just wondering about stability with such a change in weight distribution. Thanks!

Default Similar . . .

XCT is too heavy for my floor jack. Had to remove trunk and bags before she would balance. With limited options for support, I used pieces of wood for spacers to ensure I cleared the critical stuff fore and aft. A 4.0 shaker would likely topple her, so I used a couple web straps just for insurance. No way could I get on the bike while it was on the lift - even after I removed the heavy appurtenances. Now I use a simple scissor jack under the rear lift point to hold her vertical and take the weight off the tires and suspension while parked for the winter.

I have had mine for 7 years, my last bike was a vulcan 2000, and now I have a CCT, works fantastic, very stable, solid and a great jack

Two weeks ago, i had a nail in the rear tire, jacked it up and took it off with no issues, weight distribution was fine
