Wheel Jockey. Motorcycle Chain And Wheel Work Made Easy

Riding season. More miles mean more cleaning and more belt or chain maintenance. An easy and safe way to service your rear wheel and final drive is to use a Wheel Jockey, a very simple tool for the cumbersome task of rotating the wheel.

You position your bike on level ground with the kickstand down, place the Wheel Jockey  2″ in front of the rear wheel, with the smaller, stationary rod end pointing toward the wheel. You bring the bike upright and slowly roll it forward onto the Wheel Jockey until the wheel is positioned in the center of the two rollers. Once in position, you hold the bike in place with the front brake and carefully lean the bike back onto the side stand.

Now you can slowly rotate the wheel forward using both hands and clean the wheel, inspect and clean the tire and drive belt, or position the valve stem for checking air pressure.

When cleaning and maintenance is complete, once again stand the bike vertically and roll it forward off the Wheel Jockey. Return your bike to rest on the side stand. There are 2 models: “Sport model” for bikes up to 650 lbs and “Big Boy” for bikes up to 950 lbs. Sturdy steel & aluminum construction with non-skid backing. They lift your motorcycle less than 1.5″ off the ground. Sealed ball bearing movement. It’s small, light and portable in your bags if you have any. Wheel Jockey.

    I would be nice if this Wheel Jockey would also feature the possibility to rotate the bike on itself (rear wheel) when moving the bike in a garage with little room.
