Question about Motormaster Cv Joint Front Female*-ATV
I raised my motorcycle off the ground to store it for the winter using the motomaster jack . Now when I want to lower it to the ground the jack will not raise the bike to enable me to release the lock bar. the pump doesn't seem to do anything. I suspect that the hydraulic fluid may have leaked out. So, what can I do to resolve this problem? Also, in your manual, page 5, lowering the vehicle, point 3, it says "remove handle from ram and place on release valve then slowly turn release valve counter clockwise to allow jack to to slowly lower the vehicle". But your manual does not list the release valve only the release pedal. If this is the same item then how do I rotate the release pedal with the handle? Please advise as soon as possible as I want to use my motorcycle. Thanks. Peter, Oakville.
Seems there may be some confusing instructions.
Here's what I would try. My approach would be intended to get the bike off the stand before I tried to trouble shoot the motomaster jack.
1) Use the handle to rotate the release valve to the right (clockwise) until it is snug.
2) Pump the jack to try to raise it. If it raises, then press the release pedal and use the jack handle to slowly rotate the release valve to the left (counter-clockwise) to lower the deck.
3) If it does not raise, I would use a separate jack to raise it, then follow the prescribed lowering procedure, and at the same time, use the control on the extra jack to manage the lowering.
Once you get it partially lowered, hopefully the motomaster jack will start to function and you can lift the bike far enough to remove your extra jack.
Hope this helps.
