Questions about Motorcycle Lift Tables.... - February 7, 2008, 06:49 AM

HA! A motorcycle thread on .net! (GASP!!!)

Real quick - I'm entertaining the idea of purchasing a lift table for bike work and had these questions:

1. Is there anything I need to look for, or avoid in a prospective table?

2. Any specific model you would recommend?

Your experience is my gain....

I wish I could be of more help but, at the Patriot Harley dealership there is a folding table that can be raised hydraulicly or compressed air... I can't seem to remember the manufacturer at the moment. It has a Baxley like chock to lock the front wheel in and a sliding oil tray/catch as well as a pull out tray for placing tools and parts... It was nice for around $499 for sportbikes to $599 for longer heavier cruisers. Like above it folds and rolls away much like an exercise bench, very compact! I did a search, thought it was made by the Baxley Co. but no luck...


EDIT: I remember now... http://www.kendonusa.com/

How much are you willing to spend? I ask this cause there is a big difference from crappy to ok to awesome. I have worked on all three. The best is a Snap on brand for 4500.00.

Here are 2 from K&L that are very nice but nowere as stable for heavy bikes like a BMW or Goldwing but should work real good for you bikes.

The worst cost under 600 bucks and are complete shit. Rememeber you get what you pay for.
Oh and make sure you can get a removable front wheel chock. I like the flat smooth surface instead of a diamond plate. Makes it easier to clean up fluids. Also a lip on the side is ok but can be a pain in the ass sometimes. You will most likely drill holes in it to put tie downs on the front, center and rear.
