Good Jack that will work on an Indian as well as a Victory?


Can anybody recommend a good Jack that will work on an Indian as well as a Victory? I’m not looking to store the bikes on the jack, only going to use it for cleaning, maintenance and projects. Thanks!

  1. This is what we had with our Yamaha and it works great with the Indian

  2. J&S is awesome for my Chieftain

  3. J&S they’re super strong and they have an adapter just for Indians

  4. Probably lots of Jack’s will do the job but I think it might be important to get the Indian adapter.

  5. J&S Jacks, hands down. They’re spendy, but I have zero interest in putting up a pair of $20K+ bikes on less. I have one and their dolly. Also have a Victory and an Indian and live a few miles from you. You’re welcome to come check it out if you’d like.

  6. I use a regular motorcycle jack for my Vintage!

  7. A few have recommended the J&S ( I have one) and it is a strong jack. The only down side is the limitations on where you can lift the the bike. If you are going to be changing your own oil, it will be a tight fit getting the drain plugs out and how the oil will make a mess. This jack is a little tight for oil changes.

    • That is interesting! I had not heard that issue mentioned before, and just ordered a J&S jack last month (hasn’t shipped yet). You’re saying it is a bit of a pain, but still doable, right?:

    • yes it is doable. I had to cut a coke can to fashion a deflector to direct the oil from dripping on the stand and into the drip pan. The mounts that they give you almost covers the plugs.

    • Good ol’ Harbor Freight jack. Think I paid $89 for mine and it’s lifted many a large bike with no problems. Even lifted the tongue of my neighbors big trailer to swing it around. I don’t see the need to spend lots of money for something I only use a few itmes a year.

    • Bruce, What model do you have? Did you have to buy an Indian adapter?

    • Not sure of the model. There was one cheaper I think. Definitely under $100. For now I just use 2 pieces of 3/4 wood cube stock laid perpendicular across the lifts. I’m going to try the big rubber bumpers but I just haven’t needed to get around to it yet. I’ve used this jack on Roadstars, HD, Guzzi, Indian. Never had a problem. Even used it to help remove the Guzzi engine and roll it around the garage.

  8. I use the Harbor Freight table with a Condor wheel chock on the front. It will lift about 32 inches.

  9. Pancake jack it is flat use a ratchet wrench to raise up and down slides under frame of bike.

  10. I Have a J & S jack for sale $550 plus shipping. Weighs approximately 70lbs. Has Indian adapters as well. Needed a table lift instead. 708-285-1962

  11. Regular sears craftsman motorcycle jack.
