Does anyone in the UK use a Bike lift for their V-Rod?, if so would you recommend it and where can I get one. (shipping one over the pond is going to be very expensive)
Thanks Mr Vrodder

The best I have found is a Clarke CML2 in Machine Mart at £130 so far. These are $69 in the US, but with tax & shipping will probably be about the same.

Hi Paul

Do you use the the Bike Grab too? or is the lift OK on its own?.
This looks quite good because it has no fluid to leak so will not lower the bike if left for a while.

Mr V-Rodder
I've got the heavy duty version, no other equipment needed. The big bonus is that it isn't 8 foot + long & gives full access to the bike.
With a conventional bench you still have to jack up the bike to get the wheels or forks off. With this lif you can remove the whole front end without any jacking or counterbalancing of the bike, it's the business.
If you want to see a horror show, check out the thread I posted in the hi-performance forum.

mr vrodder, I use the Clarke lift purchased from Machine Mart.
It fits under the V Rod easily once the bike is upright off the side stand. Very stable and no problems at all.
Purchased mine on the VAT free sale day they have now and again for registered (regular) customers, usually about twice a year.

Also purchased this seat
