Nice product. Will this lift a Kawasaki Versys? I need to go through Mt. Horeb (a visit to The Shoe Box) sometime in the next two weeks. Can I pick one up?

thanks

Sure you can pick one up.

I have one or two folks that ordered one for the Versys and they have indicated that it has worked for them. I personally have not tried it so if the weather is nice and you ride the bike up we can make sure it meets your needs.
Thank you,
Brian

What do your standard Steel and Aluminum jacks weigh, respectively?

Thanx

Jack Weight.

I thnk the Aluminum jacks are around 8-9 oz. I currently do not have any steel ones built. If you want I can mock a steel one up and let you know. Most everyone is now taking the Aluminum ones.

That's not necessary, Brian. I'll most likely get the aluminum one.

Husqvarna TE610 Uses Standard Length Jack

Hey Guys:

I wasn't sure if Brian's "standard" length aluminum jack would work on my Husky TE610 or not. When I contacted Brian, he wasn't sure either, but he was happy to let me try one out - if it didn't work he said he'd make a longer one.

I received the aluminum standard length jack last week. Like everyone else, I'm awed by the quality, light weight, and fast shipping - all for $25. The standard length gets the rear and front wheels well off the ground with length to spare.

I spent 20 minutes experimenting with different positions, etc. My bike is only stable when the front tire is turned to the left (rear off ground). While it is fairly stable with just the front tire turned to the left, it becomes ROCK SOLID if I tie the front brake lever "closed", or if I block the front tire. That keeps the front tire from rolling back & forth as I work on the bike.

A great product - if you're thinking of making your own from some of the various ideas posted in other threads, don't bother! You can't beat Brian's version.

Brian,

Received the jack yesterday and put it to use immediately. It sure makes lubing the chain a lot easier!

A lot lighter and less expensive than a center stand--thanks for providing us with a quality product!
