Getting Started

Let’s Roll Motorcycle Lifts are shipped to you with everything you need to prepare your jack. You will notice that the jack is already assembled, with the exception of the bolt and the plastic bag of grease attached to the center bar. The round pins on the sides have already been greased. It is important to keep an eye on them throughout the lifetime of your lift and grease them as needed to ensure they are functioning correctly. All that’s left to do is grease the bolt.

If you have the standard Let’s Roll Lift, grab the packet of grease and open it. Wearing a glove, apply a third of the grease packet half way down the bolt thread all the way to the tip and save the remaining grease for reapplication in the future. Spread the grease evenly around the bolt thread. Make sure to add some on the very end of the bolt, where the screw touches the crossbar, and where all the weight pressure is put when lifting your motorcycle. If the bolt and the end are adequately greased, the lift will function smoothly. It shouldn’t be challenging to use.

If you have the NEW Let’s Roll Pro Lift, grab the packet of grease and open it. Wearing a glove, apply a third of the grease packet half way down the bolt thread all the way to the tip and save the remaining grease for reapplication in the future. Spread the grease evenly around the bolt thread. You do not need to apply grease to the tip of the bolt mechanism, because of the ball-bearing addition to the end of the bolt. The ball-bearing addition will extend the lifetime of your lift significantly. If the bolt is adequately greased, the lift will function smoothly. It shouldn’t be challenging to use.

Once the bolt is greased, the jack is ready to go!

Lifting the Motorcycle with Ease

Step 1:

Begin by positioning the Let’s Roll Motorcycle Scissor Lift under your bike, opposite side of the kickstand, the bolt should point toward the kickstand side of the bike. Center and align the lift’s platform with the frame of your motorcycle and use a 7/8″ deep well socket and a swivel head ratchet (or an 18-volt hand drill as an alternative) to raise the lift. Do not use impact or pneumatic drills, as they will compromise stability and safety and will void your warranty. As you power the drill or crank the ratchet, the lift will raise your bike off the ground. A one-person operation. Gone are the days of lifting a motorcycle with straps or needing a second person to ensure stability!

Step 2

Once the bike is lifted, slide the Let’s Roll Dolly under the bike, from the kickstand side, so that the lift is positioned between the Dolly’s crossbars. The kickstand can be positioned inside the crossbars or outside. The Dolly should be centered on the bike. Lower the lift using the same tool used in Step 1 until your motorcycle rests securely on the Dolly crossbars.

That’s it!

It’s a 1-person, 2-step, 3-minute operation.
