Anyone have/try using the motorcycle dolly from Harbor Freight?

Just bought one and I can't seem to get the bike to fit on it.
I have a 2013 V-Star 1300 Deluxe.

I have the same jack. I use a short piece of 2x12 that I run my front tire on to give clearance for jack under the frame. Have been doing this for years, works great.

Yea, you did say dolly, I read jack. Must be a loose connection between my eyes and brain. 😄. Can't help on the dolly. Now I have to see if I can chase down that loose connection.

I have one for my 950, love having it. The kickstand doesn't fit in the little trough, for 2 years I used it like that putting the kick stand on the railing. It was secure enough I didn't worry about it tipping over. I ended up extending the trough out by getting some 3/8 thick by 2 in wide and about 18 inch long steal and bolting it to the bottom on the dolly and bottom of the trough, not real petty but very functional.

I've looked at these and would love to have one but my bike is 102" long. The longest I've seen is 91".

I tried one for my VStar 650, and couldn’t get the kickstand to land in the trough. None of the hacks I came up with gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling that it wouldn’t topple over, so I took it back.

I didn’t even charge Harbor Freight an assembly fee :)
