    Dyna Jack/lift ? Starting to get pissed off with dynas and longing for an FXR

    Feck me, all my mail order parts arrived for the wide glide to start sorting it out and then discover my old “roll out” stand isn’t stable with the Dyna as it’s not flat on the frame rails underneath. Feck me could they have ballsed up a bike anymore !! So now I need a new jack/stand to even perform basic stuff that I used to knock out on a 40 quid roll onto stand on my shovel FXRS way back when.
    I don’t want to blow a shit load of cash on an all singing all dancing jack unless I have to so does anyone have any recommendations for something reasonably priced please ? Hopefully there is a pic below for something seen on amazon that appears to be able to deal with the mismatch. At this rate I am ready to start looking for an early Evo FXRS and be done with TC bollox Click image for larger version.

    Got one. Works a treat if you only need to lift it one end at a time.

    You wont be able to use the support posts but the frame just sits flat on the top. I use an old piece of car mat so you dont scratch the frame

    Thanks for the prompt response Phil, I thought in my ignorance that the adjustable posts would have dealt with the difference? Which is why I looked at it. I have seen the Harley kit today but it’s a special order so will take as long as the jack that I need anyway. One end at a time is fine

    Dynas have anoying blade on the bottom to protect the oil tank i think. With this jack you just need keep an eye out for exhaust clearance and also forward control linkages when you position it
