Pack Jack

Bought one of these last year and just tried using it the other day, but can't seem to get the hang of it to work properly. I purchased the proper size/type to use with my rear spools, but can't seem to get it to set as shown in the video's. Anyone else have an issue for these, or a solution. I'm not using a lowering kit and have the stock kickstand with a Motowerk's flatfoot. I thought that maybe I was sent the item designed for using on the axle bolt, but it does not work on that either. I'm being a ***** since I'm doing this by myself, and don't want to chance knocking over the V. Thanks.

I've used mine a bunch of times with no problems (09 bike)
You do have a bungee cord around the front brake lever, right?

can you post up some pics of you trying to use it? i dont have one or ever used one but i use a peace of 2X4 as a rear jack in the same way with a few of my other bikes, first few times it always seams sketch pushing the bike up onto the kickstand, but never had one fall over, have had it fall off the 2x4 but again bike didnt fall over, another tip is have your front wheel turned to the left and get some velcro to wrap around the front brake to keep it applied

After looking at the Pac Jac site (FIRST time!), it looks pretty easy. Are you starting w/ the "base" part too far away from your bike?
