the distance between the 2 supporting parts is about 10inch center to center so it should be good! ( better than the older version? i saw older post and members need to modify the jack ) the only bad ting is the Lift range of 11.7 to 36.8 cm (4-5/8" to 14-1/2") ( a bit low.)

Re: motorcycle lift

I bought one of those but when I went to use it the first time it didn't seem to be wide enough for my V900. I took it back. Ymmv.

Re: motorcycle lift

That looks like a slightly beefed-up, improved, different Chinese manufacturer version of the U.S. Harbor Freight lift, which is pretty much an indispensable tool for those who know how to use it:



Heck, at $65.00, you should just get it and if you don't use it or can't find a use for it, sell it for what you paid.

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force." - Ayn Rand

motorcycle lift

I saw that today as well but thought to myself when would I ever use that? Only time I can think of is doing maintenance on the brakes. It wouldn't be good for storing because the suspension would be in compressed. I'm wondering if I should buy as well

It lifts the bike by the frame, under the engine, you can get both tires off the ground easily. Suspension is at full extension.

Why would you need both tires off the ground? All the maintenance would really be done on the kickstand. I guess it's easier on the stand though. I guess for the price why not. This is my first cruiser and first belt drive bike so I still need to do some research on what kind of maintenance I will be doing.

It's recommended, in some circles, that the tires be up off the ground and fully inflated when stored, to prevent damage.
