Don't know what jack you used on your X, but I have no trouble using the motorcycle/atv jack I bought from Tractor Supply. Most any of these type jacks should work on a wing if it will handle the weight. Just strap it down for safety sake and go to work. I hear Pit Bull makes an excellent one but it is somewhat more costly. :wink:

And by the way treeguy, that was NOT a stupid question. :lol:

Welcome to the Wing world. Ride safe.

When the Wing engine is bolted in it becomes a part of the frame. Jacking the bike up with the jack on the engine is nothing... But, I really hate the sound of the engine coming down on a too high speed bump... :mad1: ... that gets my attention! It's only happened twice, and nothing's broken so far, but the engine has proven to be quite sturdy! 8)
