Sound good to me. I would enjoy testing out your new AL creation. Where do I send the coin to?

AL Jack

Hey Brian
I got the AL jack super quick. It looks great and I'm looking forward to trying it out. I'll take lots of pictures. Thanks again!

Powder Coated Steel

Right Now I have some Yellow powder coated Steel, Black painted and unfinished AL sitting ready to go.

Due to the low numbers so far all I have is Yellow but I can get just about any color done, I would just need to talk to the power coater and he is charging me $10 a jack which I would just pass on.

Updated Uly AL Jack

Based on some input I have made an Aluminum version of the Uly jack where the top plate follows the contours of the muffler. If you would like one like this please let me know.
Thank you,
Brian

got my aluminum version two days back

super quick shipping - going for a ride today, and it's in the kit.

i was surprised how light it is...but it's well made and have no doubts it will support the bike easily.

good work brian!

Just a little bump

I see some folks are offering a similar product so I thought I would bump mine.

How does one tell if the jack will fit a certain bike? My Husqvarna TE610 for example. I have the Uptite skid plate with about a million holes in it that looks like it might work for the front wheel.

How do I know if it will work

I don't have an exact answer for you, but I think it would.

I do know that folks are using them on the HP2, KLR, DR-400, DR-650, Verses, XR-650 and a few others.

I should start keeping track so I can give exact answers.

I would be happy to make anything special for you if needed.

If you feel the current version is not what you want I will always take it back at no cost to you.

The current extended lenght is 17.5" on the AL version.
Thank you for your interest.
Brian

Just got one of these from Brian for my 05 DR650SE and it looks fanstastic and works just as well!

Was able to get either the rear or front off the ground with no problems.

To get the rear up I put the jack back near the foot peg.

To get the front up I put the jack on the frame near the front motor mount bolt.

Very nice. I'm hoping this will mean I'll never have another flat since I'm now more prepared for it.

I'm amazed that this was so reasonably priced, extremely well made, and I got it in something crazy like 1 day.

Thanks!

Thank you,

Thanks for the input. I am glad to hear that it is working well for you. I just heard from another user and he says it works for the 1200GS as well.

Thanks again,
Brain
