Packjack Video Review for Versys

As Promised, Below is the link to my Video review of the Packjack Adjustable Model used on my 2011 Versys.

Description of Product (From the website):

The world’s most stable, simple, and truly portable motorcycle jack. The take-along stand that allows you to clean, lubricate, adjust, and maintain your chain anywhere, anytime. So incredibly portable and simple that you will never overlook chain maintenance again. Small enough to take with you anywhere. Stick in your pocket, store under your seat, or keep in your backpack or tank bag. Constructed from lightweight anodized aluminium. Only 9.5 Ounces and 1” X 2” X 7”. From storage to having your bike jacked up in 10 seconds. No assembly required. Large footprint for great stability. Works with all dual swingarm sport-bikes.

If anyone has specific questions, LMK!


Ordering: Special Instructions that I did because the Adjustable Version is not an option on his site yet:

If my video was not clear, this is what I did:

1) Go to the contact form: http://www.packjack.ca/contact.php Leave it at "Distribution" This will go right to Greg Hunt.

2) In the form, state that you want to order a packjack, but you want the RS Adjustable Version, but its not listed on the site. Tell them this is for the Versys. (He told me that soon it will be on the site, but not yet)

3) Wait for greg hunt to respond (or someone else). In his response, he should tell you to order the Axle Version (even though you may want it for spool) and he will recognize your order and then ship you the right one.

4) Once I placed an order, I sent him another follow-up email with my Paypal order # and such. He let me know that he received the order and that he would send the model.

There is also a contact number for you to try if you want

Its not listed on the site. Before you had to call in and ask for the RS Model or "adjustable". Now what he says on the video if you order for a versys thats what they send.

NEGATIVE!! OK - if my video was not clear, look at the main post - I put directions. There is no place to state what bike you have, there is only 2 options (spool and axle). Follow the directions up top to secure an adjustable model.

You will need to skip to the 5min mark of the video to find out what a Packjack is, what it does and how it works and why you would want one. It would be good to explain these things up front for those of us that are not familiar with it or don't want to fast forward.

Correct -- It was exactly $47.95. Again, a bit expensive, but a large part of the cost is the shipping as Canada to US (as claimed on the site)
