Motorcycle Wheel Cleaning Stand - April 11, 2010, 06:08 PM

I just picked one of these up. I haven't used it yet. My stands are at my folks, due to lack of space at my current place. This is much smaller than my rear stand. I'll be able to clean my chain or rear rim w/o having to keep moving the bike. I hadn't seen these before. Motorcyclist & Sport Rider have a $10 coupon in their current issues.

Awesome . . .

Harbor Freight rules! I am going to pick one up. I was out cleaning the chain on my SV without a stand this past weekend and could have used it. Don't have the space for something nicer but it'll work just fine . . .

so I am ass u me-ing that the bike stays on the kickstand while the rear wheel sits on these rollers???

Let us know how this works....b/c I'm thinking the platform will slide around alot as your trying to turn the wheel????


What do you value more? Life or Image?

Still haven't used it, but I'd imagine the rollers would roll and it wouldn't slide.

I'm interested to see how it works. It looks worthless, but we'll see. For years, I used a piece of a hockey stick that I cut just long enough to prop under my swingarm and raise the rear wheel off the ground. It cost me nothing... the stick was already broken.
