Anyone use a Motorcycle Jack?

Hi all. What are you using to lift your Street?
I have a Craftsman Pro Alloy jack. Purchased when I had the majesty. It kinda worked on that bike. I could lift the front wheel while on the center stand. Just tried it yesterday. Without the extenders. Was able to lift the entire 750. So I could wash the wheels. The only thing is, it just reached both frame rails. With little room to spare. I would have preferred if it was another 1" or so longer.


This is what I have: http://www.sears.com/craftsman-profe...2&blockType=G2

It looks good for the job we use a cheap harbor freight one here at work for the detailers, short of buying a lift you can roll your bike onto tha t one should be ok.

I had one years ago.
I paid about $100 for it.
rarely used it and was not enough convenient room in the garage to store it of the house I lived in at that time, so I gave it to a friend when I moved.


for me it made getting to the oil drain plug a bit more difficult.
but for being able to spin the wheels to clean them it was great.


I'd love to have the bike lift like the dealers use

Those take up ALOT of space. And are Expensive. Unless you want to live dangerously. And buy one from HF. Not sure if I would Trust a jack from HF.
