It all starts with a can of Plexus and a detail rag. Then before you know it the Tupperware is off and you dig in. I feel the shop will not inspect or pay as close attention as I. I have always wrenched on my bikes. Get a shop manual and take the plunge.

murray One more pic. Note the heavy construction of the lift. Note how grungy I look after pulling the clutch. Those BMW techs earn there money working on these beasts.

I have found the air lifts to be erratic. Most notably with raising such a heavy bike. Hydraulic and electric motor lifts allow infinite level adjustment's will try to attach a picture of my Handy electric lift. The picture is from last months clutch job.

CarSalesman Can you rig it up to run on compressed air? I've seen some of the foot pedal type that took a *lot* of pedaling.

pavehawkfe I compared its looks and construction to a couple of other brands and with my untrained eye I really couldn't justify the extra expense. I think a lot of folks are just in that "you get what you pay for" frame of mind. Personally, I've had a lot of those "I didn't get what I paid for" transactions. Time will tell.

RaffyK Rob has one and we have been using it at our NorCal tech sessions. No problems.

Went And Bought It

Well, after searching and searching for any documented failures of the Harbor Freight Motorcycle Lift Stand I went ahead and bought it. It was on sale for $299.00 and I received a 20% off coupon in the mail so it was only $240.00. Other than a "I heard about", if anyone could point me in the direction of an actual failure of any sort I sure sould appreciate the link to read about it myself. If not, then after I use it for the first couple of times I will give a full report back.
