Those without a center stand

I've been using a pack jack for about a year. It's cheap, and works very well. Even adjusted the chain with it last year at Deals Gap - Mike can attest to this. You do need spools to use it.

Thats pretty nifty, but doesn't that take up all of the space in the tail? I can barely fit a taco with a small toolkit and the preload adjuster of the ohlins.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Yep that thing came in handy on the trip. Really easy to use and stow away.

Can't you use the axle with the PackJack? I didn't think you needed spools, just the axle nut.

He has a Ninja 1000. Axle nut would probably work on the 919.

What a great idea. I wish I'd thought of it. However, I think my chain oiler has almost eliminated the need. The center stand would be vital if I ever had to R&R the rear tire roadside which is unlikely. Do you think the Pack Jack is stable enough for a tire change?

Unless you are going to adjust the chain or do a tire change.

Nah, adjusting the chain wouldn't be an issue. Just loosen the axle but before using the pack Jack and then tighten when you are done, no big deal.

As for rear tire removal that might get tricky but maybe one could use the recessed area of the swing arm?

True, but the point of the pack jack is portability while traveling. Not a lot of riders carry the tools necessary to change a tire while on a road trip.

It's a convenient accessory, not a tool, in my book. Quite handy though.

just ran in to this dilemma.
Need to change chain and sprockets and my tool is missing a piece, so I'm going to try and do it at my friends house ont he way to the event/trackday this weekend but of course, it's gonna take some redneck engineering to get that rear wheel off the ground..

i've also thought about getting one of these:
Enduro Star / Trail Stand

Do you have a garage?

I have recently gone to a four-point setup that works even better.
