I've used a motorcycle jack on several occasions and I've never hit my 2-1...

VSR I own a J&S Jack and I also have V&H 2-1.  The jack works great, it will not hit the exhaust.  I will also add that the J&S is an incredable jack.  You can buy with no worries...  ;D

The 2-1's are not lower than the frame and no issues using a jack

Here’s my simple, inexpensive and very stable homemade jack. I also have a hydraulic but rarely use  it now.                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HkcKtllEGg     
I go too far and too fast to ride a Harley! If you see my bike on a trailer call 911. A Corbin fairing, bags, heated seat, V-Rail and back rest, PC3, PR Air Kit, V&H BR, 5" Chopper's Surplus Z Bars, DWG sound system, Indian front fender, mucho Kuryakyn and Yammy bling,
