After having a rear tire blow out Friday night I was not looking forward to my first tire change on my Triumph Rocket 3 Touring. At 2300cc (140ci) this is a BIG bike. Knowing that the old tricks I used for lifting smaller/lighter bikes wouldn't have worked I did a lot of online shopping for a compact lift and decided on this Craftsman. After getting the jack home, I prepared the ratchet straps. The low profile and manuverability of the jack made it easy to slip right under the bike and find solid lift point around the oil pan even with a flat rear tire which dropped the bikes clearance by at least 5 inches. After finding a good strap point i was able to get the entire bike off the ground with ease, to a height suitable for removing the bags, exhaust, brake assembly, axel and getting the tire out from under the fender skirt with ease. The bike did not swivel or rock at all as I performed the work needed. For those of you out there with Ultra Classics, Stratoliners, Visions, Valkyries, Road Kings and Gold Wings... this would most likely be the jack for you since it worked so well for the largest production bike on the market. See you all on the highway.
I bought this jack a few years ago and barley used it. When I did the universal joint broke on the bottom of the handle and they don't sell a replacement part. So now I'm stuck with with a broke 200 dollar jack that was probably only used less than 5 times!
Works exactly as it should, can finely clean the wheels on my 2013 Road King with out rolling it across the garage Floor!
