PackJack RS motorcycle prop stand

For those of us that are to frugle (cheep) to buy a center stand and need to do some chain maintenance this is just the thing, and now it is available in an adjustable model so it will fit just about any motorcycle. It is small enough to take with you on your adventures and comes with a nice bag to keep it in. Website-- www.packjack.ca







Here is a short vid using the stand, pay no attention to my fugly ugly feet as they are old and wore out

I know this is an old thread, but some feedback from someone with this product would be nice. I see that you recently sold your PackJack (too bad I didn't see that post last month). Did you get a new bike with a rear stand or something? Or were you unhappy with the PackJack?

How sturdy is it on different surfaces (packed dirt, gravel, pavement)? Is it sturdy enough to remove a wheel if necessary? How much larger is the adjustable model when it is folded up than the non-adjustable spool stand model (if you know)?

I broke down and bought a center stand for the Tiger, so no need for the PackJack.
I used it on dirt to lube the chain and seemed sturdy to me, I think you could take the tire off with no problems but you may need to park over a rut to get enough clearance for the tire to clear the rear fender.
As far as the length of the adjustable compared to the standard I'm not sure, the adjustable would fit in the side pockets on my Wolfman Wolf tail bag if that's any help.
Overall a very well thought out product.

Thanks for your reply. I'll email the manufacturer and see about the difference in size between the two. I'll definitely be picking one up soon though.
