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.

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.

Don,

I really don't think with the current jack that is being used with the Harbor Freight lift that you would be able to. If someone has accomplished this, it sure would be nice.

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.

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.

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.
