Yamaha VStar Cruisers
Finally a solution for lifting our Yamaha
Cruisers. We have all seen and experienced the problem of
trying to use a standard Motorcycle Jack to lift our Yamaha
The shape of the lower frame combined with the
Engine Case extending below the frame, makes using a Motorcycle Jack
a risky proposition at a minimum. When using a Jack alone the
bike is not stable or solid when trying to lift. I know some
of us have tried "wedging" in blocks of wood or other materials in
an attempt to stabilize our bikes while on the Jack. Although
helping the condition, that option was far from being safe and
Knowing that my wife would kill me if her Bike
ever fell off the jack while I was servicing it, I had to come up
with a better option. That's when we developed the JackerJig.
We make our JackerJigs from 11 gauge steel tubing
and Mig Weld everything in a Jig to ensure a consistent result.
We then apply a durable finish on them to protect from the oils and fluids
that will inevitably be spilled on them. All the frame contact
points are covered with a protective piece of rubber.
JackerJigs are Bike Model specific. They are
custom fit to contact the frame in the best location to provide a
solid stable platform to lift the bike.
New Improvements for 2015: The VStar
JackerJigs have been improved! We have listened to the
feedback from our customers and made some improvements to our
JackerJigs. We have narrowed them by 1/2" to better fit the
runners on a larger variety of motorcycle Jacks being used while
still contacting the same frame points. We have also increased
the overall length of the Jigs. This was done to aide when
placing the Bike/Jig onto a stationary stand after lifting.
The Jigs will also be powder coated to better withstand the
different fluids they may be exposed to.
