Default Red Jack Mod Done!

I purchased my jack for $73 on sale and spent another 20 in hardware. Got the mod done today and had to test it out...works great! Thanks SC Longhair for the great thread!

Nobody else has that problem.

Washers - 1/2" x 1 1/4 - Qty 16

Spacers - 1/2" x 1" L - 4

Angle iron - 1" x 1" X 9" L (I cut out the existing cross member w/ angle grinder - then installed this angle farther back to make room for the kick stand)


What you can't see - I cut 4 pieces of 1/2" pipe..., then installed them under the arms (two each side..., with the bolts going through) to give the arms more rigidity


Black krylon to paint the thing after I was done modifying

HTH

This would work for sure. Just adding 5 1/2 bolts moving pads outside f4ame does not. Mak8ng room for kickstand and adding spacers 👍🏻👍🏻🇺🇸

Yeah it does. You just have to actually get down and look underneath the bike the first few times you use it.
You have to get the rear pad behind the crankcase. It's simple but you have to look.

Grade 2 bolts are low/medium carbon steel; Grade 8 bolts are medium carbon alloy steel, quenched and tempered. Grade 2 proof at 55k PSI; Grade 8 proof at 120k PSI.

You decide. What's your bike worth to you? I used Grade 8 bolts when I did use a modded Fear Lift™, and I still didn't trust it

It comes equipped with Grade 2. I know there's more support with the shorter bolts and the way the pads sit on the supports as opposed to hanging off the edges after modification. I actually did try to get Grade 8 or Grade 5, but they didn't have em, so I got Grade 2.

I'd like to hear from anyone who used Grade 2 on this mod?
