Harbor Freight rear lift, works.

Just in case someone was looking for a low cost stand for the rear, I just got the Harbor Freight steel stand and it works great. With a 20 or 25% coupon, it's about $30.

The alum version comes with spool hooks only, so if you don't have spools in the rear, might want to get the steel version.

I don't know how well it works on the front, it only has 'L' arms and I don't think those will hold well on the front.

Good cheap lift for those that need one.

Makes me wonder why some pay 5X more for some other stands.

I've sat on a bike at the track lifted front and rear with Pit Bulls, then on one lifted with cheap stands.

The Pit bulls don't move an inch, the cheap ones had a bit of wobble.

The price of the Pit Bulls is nuts though, for basic maintenance the cheapies would be sufficient I would think.

I still have yet to use my rear stand after 14K miles? I've done all my chain adjusting and cleaning while on the side stand.

What kind of jobs require the rear stand?

BTW yes the Harbor Freight stand is a great deal, $25 and works just fine.

This bike rocks. It does everything.

I use a homemade one, made from $4 worth of used gas pipe from the recycling center lol. No wobble of any kind, and the ends are threaded, so I can use different ends that I have made for different bikes

They also offer a MC wheel balance tool, supposed to be a great deal, saves the cost of having it balanced after just 2 uses or so.
