Default Low Cost Scissor Jack?

anyone have recomendations on a sub-$100 jack? I would prefer scissor style as I have extremely limited space to store the jack.

Looking to use it for air ride and shorter kickstand installation

Check out the one your dealer's shop uses and ask where they got it. Its unlike the others mentioned above. You might have to shell out over $100, but it will be worth it to have a substantial jack for that expensive bike.

I've got the Sears motorcycle jack. Holds 1500 pounds and was $129. You can find them on craigslist around 80 or so.

I have one very similar that I got when I bought my direct lift years ago. Sold the lift but kept the jack. Comes in real handy.

Dunno if I'd trust a heavy Victory on that tiny platform. Could end up being a very expensive balancing act.

I've got this one and it works well for my hammer, though I'm not raising and lowering it very often.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLACK-WIDOW-...7fc409&vxp=mtr

I use a couple pieces of wood on the ends that stretch along the frame rails and it holds solid since the bottom of my engine isn't perfectly flat.

I also built a solid U shaped dolly out of 4x4's, bracing, bolts, and 300lb wheels that slips around the jack perfectly so I can jack the bike up, slide under my dolly, lower the bike onto the dolly, and move the bike around in my garage if needed. I also leave it like this for storage if I know I won't be riding for a while.

That one looks a lot like the ones Vic service departments use. It has a larger platform.
