jackstand

Has anyone used a jack stand to lift up their bike? I'm trying to replace the rear shock/spring and the manual says to use a hoist. I don't have one but I have a 2 ton jack stand and was wondering if that would work.

I'm pretty sure it would , look into adding a center stand though for more convenience....it pays off big time since you can use it anywhere you are opposed to only in your garage.

if i need to get the rear off the ground ill use 2 smaller jack stands and a jack... ill get it to where the jack stands are under the pegs to get the ass end up. works well.

i do pretty much the same thing as nd4spdbh, but am looking at buying some stands soon. just make sure the bike sits squarely on both jack stands and that it's stable before removing the jack

+1 what they said. Either a centerstand or Phobstand.
I had my swingarm & rear shock off using the centerstand. No probs.

Guys, I came across this PackJack (PackJack - Home) and looks easy to use and small enough to store under the seat.... Have anyone tried it? Thanks a lot.....

Not bad for 37.95 shipped, seems like a good deal. Or you could go this route:

The only drawback I see to the PackJack is that if you don't have a swingarm spool (like my 919) you have to use the axle nut to lift it which means you can't remove the rear wheel if necessary.

But the nice thing is, for someone with a 900RR header conversion that can't use the phobman stand, this is a GREAT alternative. At least to clean the chain.

I use two stands or my A-frame latter with tow straps under the frame to steady/hoist the bike.

:001_smile: I contacted Greg of PackJack yesterday and he told me there is a new version which can be used on the axle nut AND also on swingarm spool The new version called "RS" is not on their website yet pending patent process. I just ordered one "RS" and impatiently waiting for it to arrive....

Will post a picture here when I got it (if Greg allow me to do so)....

Just received the PackJack stand yesterday
The stand has multiple points to suit any bikes height and it is fully adjustable. Easy to use and very portable (stores under the seat...) Here's some pics...



These are all in the package...


And here is how it looks like on the bike...

Greg from Packjack.ca just stopped by my house here in Calgary, gave me a demonstration of the Packjack on my 9'er and sold me one excellent new piece that is sure to get a lot of good use! Highly recommended seller! Great product!

And the Ugliest Seat Award goes to....

myself and Mr T81 have a stainless steel rod. just stand on the left side of the bike, reach over and place the rod under the swing arm while leaning the bike toward you. it will look very similar to that enduro star setup. one tip, place some non-slip material underneath the swing arm and use solid ground.
this also fits in a tank bag, back pack or saddle bags.
