I agree that the jack pictured by BP6666VR would be very difficult to use on a motorcycle. What would it lift against? I suppose it would have to be part of the engine which would put tremendous stress on a small area. How would the bike balance on a small area about 6" in diameter. It would seem that removing even one wheel while on a jack like this would unbalance the bike and lead to it crashing down. Even loosening or tightening any bolt with a significant torque spec would send the bike crashing down.

G'day,

I have and use 3 jacks - the ones mentioned in posts 2 and 3 plus a cheapie floor jack. The scissors jack is used when I want the bike vertical and/or a bit off the floor. The motorcycle jack for raising the bike high enough to remove the rear tire. The weakie floor jack goes under the rear tire to unweight it to remove the two bolts at the swing arms and then ease the wheel down. Then reverse that to re-install the wheel.
