Default Why isn't my back wheel jacking up...?

I've heard the red Sears jack worked for our CCTs, but if you see attached, it's not working too well. Any guidance? I do have fairly thick shims between the bike and jack on the rear lift bar.

keep jacking ... looks like it should. When I jack mine, the front wheel always comes up first.

Figured it out. The damn ratchet strap I tightened prematurely was keeping it from rising...

What is the red part of the jack that looks tweaked caddy-waumpus out of shape? Is the rear lift arm being twisted? Hope you have grade 8 bolts holding the lift arms together. I had to remove the trunk before my XCT would balance enough so my jack (pit bull style) would lift the rear.

I have the silver/yellow MC jack from Sears and it will twist under load like that if it's not balanced. I would strongly recommend removing the trunk and saddlebags before you lift; those things are kinda heavy!

Personally, I don't use that jack anymore, I have a scissors-type jack and a wheel dock. Worked great for removing my rear wheel.

I have one similar to this...




I've had no problems lifting my Vic to full height. Also used it on my Wing and my Yamaha RSMV.

I do; however, block the bike fore and aft of the jack when I work on it but lifting or lowering is no problem.

Here are the pictures after I realized my error. I had very dense rubber blocks that are designed to be placed under clothes washer feet to reduce vibrations. I cut the right one about an inch or so shorter than the left one. With really none on the front.

The bike now seems very stable on it. I'm OK for now...

Bought this, took the adapters off, and added a rubber pad on top, and it works great for cross bikes. Lifts the bike straight up about 16 inches, so solid I could sit on the bike.
