CaptClose said:IMO, lifts are pretty cheap. Just go get one. You'll get more use out of it then any other tool you have.
Consider buying a lift. Harbor Freight has a decent one for $59.99. Well worth the 60 bucks.drtwo said:I don't have a motocycle lift or stand. But, is there any simple (fairly safe) way to have my bike be upright while I change the oil or other simple maintenance?
will this work for the vrod as discribed with a 4x8 ?DrHeathenScum said:make sure the lift you buy fits under your bike, or you'll be mickey mousing scrap wood under your tires so the lift will fit under.
BTW, I used one of these for about a year... still have it too: http://www.nightrider.com/biketech/bikelift.htm
Does this one fit under the vrod? that is priced reasonably!jmullins said:The auto parts store close to me (Advance Auto) can get jacks for 69.99. I have saw this in person, and it is very easy to use, and looks very durable. The link takes you to "parts America", but it is through advance auto. There are many different stores that sell jacks such as these. I am not endorsing or advertising for anyone in particular, just giving an example of pricing. 69.99-150.00 is a reasonable price to lift something in your garage that costs between 10 and 20K.
