  • jacking up bike

    Hi Guys,
    Where is the balance point on the Roadie ? My previous bike was a V-starr 1100 cc and required 2 hockey pucks for balancing on the jack. The Road Star looks perfectly flat. I'm in Canada , so naturally i have a Canadian Tire (a.k.a Crappy Tire ) Bike jack

    Why don’t you just test yours? Depends on the accessories you have, fairing, bags, etc. I put my jack right behind the kickstand if I want both wheels off the ground. Any placement of the jack will lift from the frame. If I’m doing just the front or rear, I use a simple manual lever jack I made from a 4” x 6” with a long steel pipe handle.
