Wheel Jockey® Big Joc FAQs
Can I use it on my front wheel?
YES… all threeWheel Jockey models may be used on the front wheel of
most any bike. However it must be done carefully. It’s important to keep
the front fork against the left stop to prevent the wheel from “flopping”
back and forth while working on it—which it will do if pointed straight ahead.
If the bike has no centerstand, we have found it best to pull the bike backwards
up onto the Wheel Jockey, keeping the solid “step” pointed towards the front tire.
If the bike has a center stand, it can be placed behind the front wheel about
6-8 inches so that when the bike is pulled up on the centerstand, the front
wheel lands on the Wheel Jockey in the same motion.
Can I use it on a Trike?
YES…the information we have received from our Trike customers is that the
Wheel Jockey Big Joc can be used quite easily on the rear wheels in the same
way one would use it for a standard bike. However, if the Trike has limited-slip
rear end, which some apparently do, it is less likely to work unless two Wheel
Jockeys are used at the same time.
Can I use it on my Gold Wing?
YES…Big Joc Wheel Jockey can be used on the rear wheel of a Gold Wing if
necessary. Just follow the instructions in the “Instruction Sheet”. Since most
Gold Wings have center stands, it should not be necessary. Using the WJ on
the Front wheel is covered in Q #1.
Will motorcycle cleaners cause harm to the Wheel jockey?
NO…the Wheel Jockey has a powder-coated finish and will withstand
most any cleaning agent. The bearings in the rollers are sealed and
should also not be affected by cleaners. If, for some reason, strong
solvents are used, it is possible that the rubber backing could come
loose. In the event that should happen, you may contact us for
