Motorcycle table lift
« on: April 18, 2020, 10:37:36 PM »
Hi all,
  I'm having some trouble with my table  lift,
 It wont go up to it's full height, even without a load.
 I'm thinking, its air in the system???. Any one had a similar problem, and knows what I do to fix it.

:084: More likely a lack of oil. Check any instructions if you have any, but generally fully lower the jack and check/top oil level.

As Stevie said, and make sure to use the appropriate oil.

On mine I had oil leaking up past the seal to the 'wrong' side of the seal. Less oil in the working part and oil escaping out of the weep hole at the top.

Took it off and to a local hydraulics company who fitted a new seal and refilled the system.
