Sears Jack 1/2" to small
After I read a post stating the Sears product worked well, I went out and purchased one. Even on sale, it is considerably more than most I seen so far and it's lifting area is too small; about 1/2" short all around of the minimum needed to lift this bike. I was able to place it in the back of the engine on the frame, not centered enough to lift both wheel off the ground, but it got the bike high enough to put the oil pan underneath.
For a smaller bike with a more narrow frame, it would work well. I plan to return it after this first service and shop for one designed to lift a bike the size of a Star V 1100.
