I had been looking at J&S Jacks in WI a couple of years ago thinking about getting a good motorcycle jack for my current bike and then forgot about it for a while. Now I'm at it again however the company does no longer exist. There are around 60 complaints with the BBB about being charged and never receiving the product with no response and disconnected phones. They were supposed to be top notch quality but lots of folks are now short around $900. Some say that HF lifts are good but then I hear about welds popping so I think I'll pass on that. I could fabricate an adapter that matches the Rocket 3's 4 lift points but need a good reliable simple and minimal motorcycle lift so I don't have to take the whole bike in for tire changes etc..
What do you guys use that is not a table?
 
I have a J&S jack from 2017 and I must say it is quite good for my Indian Roadmaster (over 900 lbs.) Back then the service seemed to be okay except when the bottle jack failed on it. I ordered one because the warranty expired but I had to stop pay on my card as it never got delivered. They never answered the phone. I bought a new one and drilled holes in it to fit for half of the price. Sorry this is long winded. The J&S arms seem too wide for the Rocket. I am about to order a Big Blue motorcycle Lift and have done my research and comparos as being the one to get. I'm told it can be modified to fit my other bikes so I am looking forward to getting it.
 
Straps, floor lifts, car jacks and stools, for tires just lift, when removing and installing engine, stator or clutch (detent) different things work.

Cool, let me know how it works with your Rocket, maybe post some pics.
 
I don't have any desire or room for a lift table and will go with the Big Blue Eazyrizer which is minimal and perfect for me. I ran across their products when I was doing my research a couple of years ago and narrowed my choices down to J&S Jacks (so glad I didn't send them any money) and Big Blue. The fact that they make the mount sets bike specific is a huge plus and though not cheap I think it's a worthy investment.
 
I have set up my Big Blue Motorcycle lift and here it is at only half raised. It is very solid and secure, plus I added the straps to the foot pegs just in case. I am looking forward to the possibilities. I now am able to change tires when needed because I also have the Rabaconda tire machine.
