Motorcycle stands

Postby barney01 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 1:38 pm

It's no good the back and knees can't take the scrabbling about on the floor anymore! I suffer for days after doing any work on the bikes.
I was going to get a proper table lift but my new workshop is a single garage so I think I'm going to have to buy a stand. I've looked at what's on offer but I'm not looking to spend £500 on an ABBA stand or similar. I have seen one called an eazy rizer at £350.
Anyone else recommend one ?
Bearing in mind my other bike is a big heavy bike too.

Make sure you get one long enough.. I bought one with a ramp to get the bike on, but if you take the ramp off, it's too short.. Should have gone for the longer one with the removable flap at the back. :twisted: :twisted:

I bought this one ..cheapest.and good quality to. the clark one is to long for my garage but this one is ideal.
the only problem as with all is the front wheel clamp..you will need tie downs....
