I’m looking to replace rear and front brakes myself. Due to the low rear profile, I was looking into what jacks are available to bring the rear up to get under the bike. I dong want to spend a lot of $$. Maybe even a harbor freight one.

I think the jacks must be specific to your bike’s tire hubs or something? Sorry I really don’t know much about this but want to make sure I do it right.

You need a lift that sits under the motor and lifts the whole bike. Some of them require fittings to match the Indian lift points. Because the bikes are very heavy, I've found it best to get one which allows a slow lowering of the bike. Some lifts have a foot operated lowering pedal and it is very touchy and the bike drops too fast for me to be comfortable.

This kind of thing.


And here's an Aussie built one that I use, included here for the Kookaburras and Magpies in the background. :)
