Some really nice jacks and tables in this thread. Wish I had the room for a table but really only need a jack anyway.

Between this thread, mfg. web sites and reviews I'm going for the J&S.
The only question I have is that their site says for all Harley's but the compatibility list doesn't call out my model.

I only have a little '17 Iron so I guess I have to get the dimensions and measure a bit. But will the lift rails grab underneath at good spots. Anyone use this baby on a small Iron?

But if I were to buy one, it would cost me whatever this lift costs, plus about $10,000 for the divorce lawyer, plus 1/2 of everything else I own.

That's a little more than I want to spend right now....

I don't think they've made significant changes to the basic sporty frame in forever...at least not since they went to the engine isolators (2004 I believe)...and even then the basic geometry on the lower tubes is the same.

I'd make a phone call to J&S to confirm, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

Try this:

I need one that is somewhat compact, as I don't want to be tripping over it when it's not being used. I would also want one that lifts as high as possible.

Any good suggestions ????
I don't think you can go wrong with the cheaper Harbor Freight or Northern Tools lift. For the money they are great. To make mine rock steady, I always use it with the casters removed. Admittedly, it's hard to find a lift that can do everything and fits all bike frames. Anyone who has tried to modify their Softail shocks can relate. Just my 2 cents. Good Luck.
