Motorcycle… Wheel Jockey

Wheel Jockey

With the scarcity of centerstands on modern motorcycles, the ability to spin a wheel into place had become enormously complicated. You can buy a huge bike stand to do this, but now there is another choice- get the compact and effective Wheel Jockey.

Simplicity is a virtue here, as the Wheel Jockey is nothing more than a steel frame (with high-grip backing) holding two heavy-duty aluminum cylinders rolling on ball bearings, plus a fixed cylinder to help get the wheel in place.

To cut to the chase, this little gem works. It’s a one-man job to get the wheel on the Wheel Jockey, though it takes a bit of practice. Once up, the Wheel Jockey is ideal for inspecting tires, adjusting air pressure, cleaning wheels, and lubing chains. Perfect.
