Just ordered a j&s jack, Indian adapters and a t handle to go w it. They said I should get it in 2 1/2 weeks.
I have a Pitbull jack that I bought at Daytona bike week probably 15 or more years ago and it's been great. They have a new owner now, but they still sold me an Indian adapter and it works great.I got my 13 years years ago and it works today like it did on day one. Back then, I called, ordered, and received it in 5 working days. I don't know what happened to J&S, maybe they got to big for their britches. Whatever, I have heard of some people waiting in excess of three months for their product. This is absurd, I personally will not do anymore business with J&S. When a company stops caring for the customer it will eventually fail. If I were to get another jack it would be from Pitbull.
They are a very small family run operation. They have a part-time welder that come in at night and they had trouble keeping up for years now.Just got mine the first of the month, I think the wife ordered it after Thanksgiving. At any rate, it's worth it. I'm sure with bike sales down, these jacks don't sell like they used to, and it seems to be a one time purchase as they last. I bet they are a much smaller operation than they used to be.
I got mine so I could not only help with maintenance but so I could easily move my bike around in the winter while I worked on other things in the garage space. By the time it gets here the winter will be over and a big reason for the jack will then have to wait for next year.I don’t care how good the product is just be ready to be frustrated as hell
Maybe they should hire a full-time welder, jus sayin.They are a very small family run operation. They have a part-time welder that come in at night and they had trouble keeping up for years now.
I'm guessing their business is running at full capacity which leads to delays. If you get them on the phone you'll find they are the nicest people in the world.

They have been in business for 25 years. Maybe it is time to step up production. I have their jack and like it very much. If their production is backed up 2-3 months then one may claim they are doing good on their end. The one that is not is the buyer.They probably don't make enough money to pay a full time welder who is worth anything.
As many small mom and pop shops, they don't build any inventory as they don't really have the money to do it. So they build to order. Doing that is a catch 22, because if they let potential customers know what the lead times was, that may turn away potential buyers, but on the same note, it pisses off people who buy and have to wait. This type of motorcycle jack is not commonly used buy shops (they use lift tables) and the less expensive Chinese jacks out there are taking sales away.
Perhaps they are reluctant to invest in expansion because of the shrinking market for motorcycles.They have been in business for 25 years. Maybe it is time to step up production.
