Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Hi guys,

just wanted to let know those interested in purchasing a lift of this great coupon from Harbor Freight. Regular price is $400 and I was hesitant to buy it for my clutch replacement job, but when I found this "hidden" coupon for $280, I just jumped on it. They used the forklift to load it in my Jeep but it was tougher to unload all 350lbs of it by myself. Assembly took about 1 hour and the lift seems very rigid. Definitely worth the money. This coupon is valid until 2/20/2010.

http://www.harborfreightusa.com/usa/...e=magurl4.html

I still can't figure how to find this coupon by searching their web site but I was lucky to see the link posted on another motorcycling message board and thought to pass it along.

Good luck!

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Thanks for showing us this. I've been looking for a lift for quite a while and have not enjoyed what I've seen, either because of the price or the flimsy lift. Does anyone have experience with this lift?

There have been previous posts concerning the HF lift. I get my K75 up easily and onto their front chock (a worthwhile accessory) but many others have built side supports with 2 x 6"s and 1" plywood.

I have yet to lift my LT on the HF but others have done it.

You are welcome Doug! I too had resisted the urge to buy one given their ridiculous prices even on eBay. But this was just too good to pass. Jerry seems to have good experience with this lift:

I recently picked up this lift "used" for a very good price, and just added the HF chock. It was only $39 w/coupon, found inside the most recent Rider or "other" MC magazine, and similar to the ~$180 Condor chock I was considering!). It could also double as a floor stand if needed, when not on the lift.

I've yet to use the thing (spare time during the Christmas month is in short supply!) but was curious how people have loaded the LT WITHOUT using any kind of side extensions, home built or otherwise.

Do you just "waddle" the thing up there (by waddle, I mean up off the seat, feet always on the ground), feathering the clutch while maintaining balance until the front wheel settles into the chock? Do you feel the extensions are a requirement, or just a convenience?

Thanks much!

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

I purchased a Harbor Freight lift about 4 years ago and have been using it for the past four years. When I purchased it I had a 2005 LT which I used it for. In 2008 I purchased a Gold Wing. When I got it I notified the lift and use a WheelDock on it. It makes it a little safer. I still use it for LT's, which I have some friends I do tires for. Click on this website and you will see the notifications I did to it.

Not to worry too much as the first thing that hits is the radio antenna. Good idea to get into the habit of scanning the whole bike as you lift it. My HF lift (1250 lb. pneumatic) tops out JUST before the windshield hits the ceiling but it would definitely hit the door if it were down.

I replaced the wheel chock that came with the bike with the stand that holds the front tire and is usually bolted to the floor. It feels much safer to me than having to turn the clamp down on the original. I put my LT on the lift by myself as no help is usually available. HF sells the stand on sale for about $40.

Wow! A big thank you. I was getting ready to get one with the 20% off coupon, and this saves me another $40.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

I would love to get one of these lifts, but I have limited space in my garage. I would have to park the bike on the lift to have room for both the bike and the lift in the garage. Has anyone else had experience with this?

I don't have a HF lift but another brand. I also have the space problem. I have parked on my lift for the past 2 years. I also store the bike for the winter onit. I have never had a problem.

There is just enough room for my wife to park her Honda CRV over my lift. The Dodge caravan definitely won't clear, so I suspect most SUV's, and PU's will be able to drive over the lift, but most cars won't.

I thought I would park a bike on the lift, but quickly realized it wasn't going to work for me. With two bikes in a single stall, the lift took up just enough floor space to make it a pain to maneuver around either bike.

I try to have a "spotter" when I ride the bike on and off the lift. I need the additional width and use a set of 4x6 on each side but because they are not long enough and have to be moved by my lovely assistant as the bike creep forward onto the lift and I loose my footing.

I'm lucky in that I get 2/3 of a 3 car garage. No need to store your bike on the lift If you are going to ride it regularly. Just push the lift to a wall, tip it on edge, and strap her down.

I put my LT on the lift without any walking boards 1 time. Pucker factor 37 on a scale of 1 to 10. I screwed some 4X4 legs to my 2X10 loading ramps and the pucker factor has dropped to 1.0714. MUCH more comfortable.

BTW I park my XJ 650 on the ramp and the Beemer on the floor.

I bought my HF lift last March, and park on it every day to save garage space. However, I opted for the 1200 lb unit instead of the 1000. Just wanted the added margin for the LT. Glad I did.

When I first set it up, I stared at that thing for about 2 days before concluding that riding up on it just wasn't practical without the HF side extensions. Just nowhere to put down your foot to stabilize and dismount. So after adding the extensions, riding up on it is easy. However, it's not really long enough to get the rear LT wheel on the deck, so I ride the front wheel into the front chock, grab the front brake, kill the engine, and dismount while holding the brake. Once off, I lower the center stand, grab the clutch, release the brake and rock her back. My old '99 doesn't have the hydraulic center stand. I'm sure that would make things easier.

Gino,

I would NEVER EVER EVER try to put the bike on the lift unless I was in the saddle. You would hit the critical lean angle very quickly as the bike goes on the lift and if you were to have both feet on the ground when this happens you had better get them moving and fast or you would very quickly become the meat in an LT/concrete floor sandwich. A couple 2X10's 8' long supported so that they are approximately the same height as the deck of the lift in its lowest position is all you need. I just took a 4x4 post, lopped off 12 pieces between 4 and 6 inches in length, stood one on end at each corner and one on each edge of the 2x10 in the middle and screwed em on from the top with 3 each 5" deck screws. Plenty sturdy and takes almost all the fear out of the process. If I want to use my "walking boards" as ramps I will just unscrew the 4x4 feet and presto they are ramps again. You need ramps anyway. I bought a set of the aluminum gizmos that screw over the ends of the boards to make the ramps.


Just to make sure you are clear

+1. I paid $75.00 extra, and it was worth it. The 1,200 lb. lift will last longer IMO, as it is "overengineered" for the job.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Hi, Loren.

Verily, you speak truly. In July '08 I dropped Quick Silver on my left big toe! Shattered the bone under the toe nail and essentially made the entire toe look like a squished grape! Wound up in a boot cast for a month and a half and the toe nail is still in the process of growing out. Took two of us to get the LT off of me. Not to mention the embarrassment!

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

kmurphy, that is a tough one. When you have a sore foot life is truly miserable. Can you imagine, after the trauma you suffered, how badly you would be injured if an LT fell off a lift at the lowest position? Figure the table top is 6 to 8 inches off the floor in its lowest position. If it fell on you the wheels would be above you. I doubt you would ever be able to crawl out from under it unassisted. Because the wheel would be above you it would likely take at least 3 and probably 4 people to lift it high enough for someone to drag you out. Shudder!!!

Ride that sucker onto the lift table and jump like a kangaroo if it starts to go over.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Hi, Loren. Oh, I know what you're talking about. In my case, it had me pinned in place by the weight of the machine on my toe. As the bike fell, it pushed my upper body and legs away, but I fell to the ground as the weight came on my foot in a split second. I didn't even know the bike was on top of "me" until I tried to step back to get in position to stand the bike back up. But adding that extra few inches would really hammer the point home - so to speak. Considering my last name and the common label for the laws of probability, it would be just about guaranteed any bike I would try to put on a lift would leap off the lift in the most spectacular manner possible. So that is why for any maintenance, I take Quick Silver to the best BMW shop in Colorado.

Thanks - that's actually what I meant when I said "up off the seat" - I should have said "straddling the seat." I was just trying to find out if the extra extensions are needed. I can straddle the seat, not sitting on it, and have both feet firmly planted on the ground (standing up), so I figure I could ride/walk the bike up the lift.

Thanks for the advice on the ramps - I'll probably make a couple just 'cause.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

I got the HF lift for Christmas.(still in the crate) I plan on using my car ramps to stand on when riding the bike on the lift. Not my idea. I believe Mr. Shealey mentioned that in an earlier post. But, I may build the side stands as earlier posted, as that seams like a very good idea also. I'm just glad my old butt don't have to lay on the concrete floor anymore.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

I rode the LT out for Christmas Eve shopping in the Cleveland winter weather which worked out well as I could park right up front at all the stores in the little hatched off areas! NICE! I was at Harbor Freight and they were passing out 25% off any item on New Years Day. Still not as good a deal as the other coupon on the lift, but could be useful for other purchases. After shaving a couple of hours off my last minute shopping spree by snagging the primo parking spaces, I took a ride thru the somewhat slushy metropark.

Merry Christmas!

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Yes Virginia, you can park your bike on the Harbor Lift. This is the 1,200 lb model, with wings. I can ride right up on top, with plenty of room to put down the side stand and get off.

I did have to put a 2x12x44 piece of doug fir under the bottom front of ramp to reduce the angle a bit - center stand would drag on top of ramp without it.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

The original post is over a year old. I don't think that the coupon would still be valid.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

If any of you are interested in a large purchase from Harbour freight,
pick up a copy of Popular Mechanics
they have a continues full page add with a 25% off coupon,

occasionally the Parade magazine insert of our local newspaper has the same ad,
the coupons usually have a 90 day limit.

The 25% off coupon isn't as good as it used to be. There is now a list of items it can't be used on. Basically anything good or expensive is not covered. Pissed me off when I couldn't use it to buy a tool cabinet. (or welders, floor jacks, etc)

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

I still see one page Harbor Freight ads in the back of popular motorcycle magazines. Most, but not all, of those ads include a coupon for the 1000 lb motorcycle lift at a much better price than the regular Harbor Freight newsletters I get in the mail.

I just grabbed the first motorcycle magazine I saw laying around (Cycle World, January 2011), and it includes a coupon for the 1000 lb motorcycle lift for $279 (Reg Price $499.99).

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Air & Space Smithsonian nearly always has a 20% off single item coupon near the back. Kind of a shame to cut up that mag though.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

No need to "cut up the mag"
just let them scan it and swipe a magic marker across the barcode.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Hi guys, I kinda hate to drudge up an old thread like this but I've gotten to a point where i'm serious about a lift. I had purchased a 2500# hydraulic lift table that I had planned to convert to a bike lift but I need to increase the table size and get the cylenders rebuilt. The effort dosen't seem worth it as it sits here in hindsight. The HF 1000# lift is up to $499 on their website now. Has anyone seen a link to the "magic coupon" lately?

Thanks in advance!

Most of the links I have are all dead now, but pretty much ANY MC related magazine (Rider, Cycle World, etc.) has this HF coupon in there.

Alternately, browse around SCRIBD.COM if you have some time to kill...

I saw $290 in a motorcycle magazine recently. I just donated them all to the library yesterday, sorry. I will look at the ones I still have, and if I find something I will send you a PM.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

In our local newspaper, the Sunday ad usually has a flier for HF and it has a 20% off any one item. Still does not bring it down to $300.00 but it sure will help.

The June 2011 issue of Cycle World has a one page ad from Harbor Freight with two coupons of interest, which expire on 9/3/11:

* 1000 lb. Capacity Motorcycle Lift, Lot #91764
-- regular price $499.99, coupon for $299.99, Limit 3.

* 20% off any one item. Limit 1.
-- for a $499.99 motorcycle list, that's $399.99; not as good as the coupon above.

Re: Great coupon from Harbor Freight for motorcycle lift

Just found this from another forum in case you didn't get a physical coupon:

- Go online to here: http://www.harborfreight.com/1000-lb...ift-91764.html
- Add to cart
- Apply the following coupon code: 76828177
- Click "Print List for Store Visit"
- Take print into store and buy lift

Have fun.
