Cheap Scissor Jack

Best £35 I have ever spent. Makes it really easy to clean back wheels, lube chain, check oil etc and is a piece of cake to use. Here's a video of me using, whilst your watching can anyone tell me what the squeak to rear wheel maybe, I remember reading on forum someone else had the same issue and got it fixed, can anyone tell me so I can raise with Triumph. Also if it wasn't for lift hadn't noticed squeak.


Here's the link to jack.

Good job!

I have a wheel chuck which keeps my bike perpendicular. I think it would be easier for me to start with a perpendicular bike rather than one on the side stand. Anyway, I am going to get a scissor jack and try it.

Hey , your back wheel sounds like an R2D2 soundbite as well.

So far behind , I think I'm in first place.

I do. But it was another member (Iím still learning names around here , forgive me) that determined it is a dry wheel bearing seal talking against the axle. He used a pfte spray in the area and it has stopped. I will too.

Here! Here I am!!!

It was a bit off-topic in the "John Deere Bobber" thread, so that's why you probably could not find it anymore.
A small dose of some hybrid lubricant (oil+PTFE) to the point where the spacers enter the seals helped, issue is gone ever since.

Reason I chose this is that I was too lazy to pull out the rear axle, and the specific spray is what I had at hand and figured it might work best.
Would have gone for a bit of grease otherwise.

i have a similar jack stand (also from amazon). was like around 60 US$. i went this route as it's easy to work (i use a ratcheting socket wrench to help speed up the raising/lowering process) and it's pretty compact and not too heavy. for simple cleaning and such it works fine. just be careful as the bike can rotate on the stand, but for added security you can just use some straps. for more extensive work i think a paddock stand would be more recommended.

What part of the bike is resting on the stand . . . the frame rails or the engine?

part of the oil pan/engine sits slightly lower than the frame rails (at least on my bike, but may differ on yours). it's only on a certain area so i'm able to situate the jack so that it avoids that particular overhanging part. have read before that some say it's okay if the engine is sitting on the jack, but not totally sure. i'm sure some kind of wooden cradle can be fashioned to remedy this problem though if that problem area is right where you want to put the jack under.

Do ya'll not secure the bike down with any sort of straps? You just let it sit up there all willy nilly like that?

Seriously though, doesn't that seem dangerous?
