I'm looking for a new jack. Not sure if I want a jack or lift table. Primary use will be general maintenance, service, and maybe cleaning. I'm a novice mechanic but always learning to do more. Help me!!!!
I've had a aluminum Craftsman jack for 10 years now with no problems. Recently got a harbor freight table lift I like it not much use yet to give a good review. I will say you have to put a better wheel chalk on this lift. What it comes with is crap.
Been using a Harbor Freight table lift for a few years now. As stated, change out the wheel chock. I welded together some frames that are removable from the table and topped them with plywood so I can ride my bikes right up onto the lift
Been using a $100 Larin for 15 year without fail. Does everything I needed it to do. A buddy just bought a Pitbull lift. Its a nice jack and a much stouter jack than mine, but also cost a good bit more. In the end, they both do the same thing.
I used the red craftsman jack for several years without any problems. I did however buy the harbor freight lift table a couple of years ago and that's been great. I use that for everything. Comes in handy for a work bench when the bike isn't on it
I like my Larin lift for general maintenance and service. Helps to get the wheels off the ground or even just to support a bike upright. For building or major surgery I use my HF table. You can get the work right up in front of you and use the top as a work surface for tools and parts.
I've been using a Direct Lift table lift for 15 years. Without a doubt, one of the most stable lifts on the market. Very professional and works flawlessly. I do all my own maintenance and engine mods. Cant' imagine not have a table for this. I also have the center sicker jack to lift the back tire up on the table. I also use that for cleaning the bike in the driveway. It will lift the whole bike making it easy for washing front and bike wheels. It is the heavy duty professional sicker from Eastern Performance.
I have the red craftsman jack. it was on sale when I bought it. It works great, hiowever I have two complaints. 1) when stepping on the lever to let the jack down its very touchy and comes down WAY to fast and is very bouncy if your let off a little to slow it down. 2) it does not roll under my bike when its on the jiffy stand I have to stand the bike up and hold it with one hand and move the jack under with the other. I dont know what type of jack my friend has but his rolls right under my RG. and no my bike is not lowered. I would like either a J&S or a table but could not afford either at the time I bought this.
Adding a tour pack and would like some recommendations between the chopped and regular. Rarely carry a passenger and usually do long day rides. I’m leaning towards the chopped because of the look but want to ensure I’m not neglecting functionality.
I just got one of these kits HD part #69060-90G for $44.95. It is the stock horn for the 2014 models and since the stock horn on my bike SUCKS I thought I would give the new horn a try.
I haven't put it on yet I am going to do that in a bit so I don't know if it is much better than the stock...
Just ordered Hog liners stretched saddle bag liners. Without a liner my shields and glasses get scratched up. Anyone using them? The reviews are good. I was going to just felt line them. But these carpets are water proof and gives a flat bottom to the bags.
I'm looking to run lowers with the colder weather coming . I have the tallboys brackets and a softbrake 2" pedal. So both boards and brake are forward 2". Tallboys website says '14s and up won't require their special bracket to allow for more room for lowers. Anyone running a later...
