Bike lift /stand for your servicing needs

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' started by Samboss260, Oct 9, 2013.

  1. Have also posted a similar post in the Projects section.

    What are you using for maintaining or servicing your bike?

    Stands? Jacks? Lifts? Platforms?

    I'm considering purchasing a lift to make things a bit easier for the project build, but not sure which way to go.

    Comments or even picks of your setup would be great.

  2. Which type were you looking at? And why didn't you get one?

    I jsut don't know which way to go, either a jack type with wheels in the air or a lift/table type option.

    Plus trying to keep it under $400 if I can
  3. I've got an Anderson stand I used to use for the Hornet, (no centrestand) but it would be no use to you on the VFR with your single-sided swingarm....
  4. Well it was something like two years ago so I'm not 100% on that one lol, I didn't end up getting one because I didn't really need one I guess.

    I guess that would kinda depend on what you want to be doing with it. I'd be inclined to say go for a wheels in the air version provided your bike can take it, but I'm not a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination so don't take my word for it. If it were just for cleaning and whatnot I suppose a table type. Not an expert though.
  5. It will be to restore and work on my project bike - 1981 Katana GS650G
