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.)

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.

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.

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.

I have the Canadian tire lift, its about 5 years old. I use a couple of small blocks of wood to keep from lifting on the engine. Other than that it works just fine.

I use my harbor freight one to change oil, clean the wheels and general work. It is a tool I am very glad I purchased. Just make sure what you purchase will roll under the bike. I roll mine under the right side as the bike is leaning on the stand. Once I cannot push any further, I pull the bike towards me using the handle bar until it is level, push the lift a little further towards the stand and then lift. If you have it properly positioned, the bike will raise the front and back wheels evenly and will be pretty much level.
