Used a J&S on my Goldwing (with adapter) and it worked great. Raised the bike high enough to pull the rear tire straight down and out and was completely stable. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat if I was still doing my own service work . . . I only have good things to say about J & S jacks.

I have a j&s. Good lift, horrible customer service. If I were buying new I'd get a pitbull.

Forget about J&S, good lift but the people running that place are a complete disaster and full of excuses. I have a pitbull, purchased a couple years ago. It's a great lift and I have the Indian adapters which are a must. I believe the issue now with pitbull is they either could not figure out how to maintain a website or did not want to so they are phone only. That usually means you are at the mercy of someone answering the phone which in todays world does not end well. Their number is1-888-299-9325. There is pit-bull.com but believe that is a different company.

Seems like there is a huge opportunity for someone to get into the motorcycle lift business if they can do it right and put customers first.

I too have a J&S and have never had any of the issues I’ve read in other posts.
Rock solid and it works great.

I have the J&S and wouldn’t recommend anyone to do business with this company. I won’t go into details, just check out there BBB rating before buying.

Many have bought this and can use with most all m/c two arm jacks. Works well.

I bought the J&S, it's a decent jack, nothing extraordinary. Horrible business people. I wouldn't recommend doing business with them.

I have a J&S Jack . Super solid with Indian adapters. Got it earlier in the year. I was worried about how long it would take to get it. Only took a couple of days. It rolls with almost no effort. I tried an aluminum one from Harbor Freight. The flex I got from it changed my mind on price and quality real quick. It’s a bit of coin but peace of mind is worth it to me.

I have a Pitbull pneumatic actuated jack which got to the point where it didn't work properly any longer. I discovered a local bike shop which I now use exclusively for tire changes. If I were to invest in another jack, I'd go with the ProLift Black Widow

Got the Harbor Freight steel jack and modified it with the door stops so the lines don’t get pinched. Lifts and holds the RM just fine.

I got mine years ago from a Craigslist seller and made up an adapter for it. $40.00ish + some scrap lumber. Does the job just fine.
