    Thinking of buying one of these jacks for my 2009 Ultra Classic. Anyone have one? What do you think of it? Or other recommendations?
    Any feedback would be appreciated.
    Thank you and Ride Safe.

    I use the one in the Harley catalog and it's heavy duty and works great, there are lot out there, you'll get input from everyone, and I'm sure someone on the forum wll have the one you asked about. One thing you will want is a set of rubber blocks that snap on the frame, they raise it a touch and gives a nice flat surface when jacking. You can pick up at HD.

    I have the J&S. I have a Heritage and it works great. It provides a very stable platform. I don't have to hold the bike on the way up or down. It picks it up off the sidestand and sets it back down that way. Also has 2 sturdy locks so you can use it to store your bike off the cement.

    I got a Pitbull jack for my Ultra. Bought it used for $100. Works great.

    J&S all the way - my 09 SG sleeps comfortably at night resting on top of my sweet jack. Well worth the cost!:newsmile093:

    Bought my jack at Sears (house brand) two years ago for less than 100.00 and it works great. The forks have rubber pads, separate hydraulic up and down foot pedals, solid wheels and low profile so it slides under the frame easily, I highly recommend this one.

    J-S Jacks are good. They're pretty much all the same, some just work better then others. Ya get what ya pay for usually...

    I really like my J&S for my Ultra. Very stable and easy to move the bike around the garage.

    Good USA product built in Wisconsin.
