Has anyone had any luck using the rubber adapters on a dyna so that you could use a jack?

I used folded cardboard when I needed to jack up my bike. It was easy to modify if I needed a different size just by adding another fold or two. Plus it was free and easy to source.

They worked well enough, but after a few uses they became unstable, wanted to twist and fall over, and eventually they fell apart.

If you want a jack that will be able to jack your Dyna up and have it be rock solid - there's only one choice. The J&S Jack. URL; https://jsjacks.com/product/motorcycle-lift/
Nothing else even comes close. I bought mine about 5 years ago for $495. I just save $25 each week until I could afford it. I use it all the time for maintenance and for cleaning the bike (which is easier when elevated).
All the other jacks are crap and so are those Harley adapters - I tried them and they are unsafe.

I modified my cheap HF jack for about $10.
