Has anyone had any experience with this lift?
My back is telling me not to do any bending over so I am going to get a lift to be able to work on my bike. I looked at this one....what do you guys think?

i bought a cheaper 1 from wal-mart awhile back, and wouldn't take nothing for it.

you'll still be bending over some tho. unless you get 1 of those lifts.

There a okay lift. Have one at the shop and use it in a pinch. Just make sure you tie the bike down to the lift. Tony:waving:

do those arms go under the exhaust pipes, or do they hit the frame rails?

Harbor Freight has the exact same lift except in yellow for $50 - $60 on sale often.

Read the customer reviews at the Sears site. About 1/3 or more are negative -- apparently the bottle fails regularly.

I got one at Canadian Tire 2 years ago when they were all the rage. You roll it under the exhaust headers when the bike is on it's main stand. As Ava Auto Tech says, use a tie down to hold it to the jack. If you intend to run the engine on it when it's jacked up put a board on top of each rubber support. The exhaust headers are well able to take the weight.

This jack will lift the Wing off the ground but not by much. You will still be sitting on a low bench or on your knees for other maintenance work. On the other hand you can still remove the front and rear wheels, forks and do a variety of tasks while it is safe and secure.

Sears jack are dangours!Sears won't back there products. I won't go into why I know that because it's to long of a story. I have purchased the most expensive jacks sears offers, the more you spend the worst they are. Buy a jack somewhere else.

I have had one for several years. No problems. I also have a table lift from Harbor Frieght. The jack on the table lift is starting to leak on it just a little. Nothing major but you do see a drip on the floor after lifting a Goldwing and letting it back down.

Hey Jerry I saw a fix for that on here not to long ago, I guess it is basically rebuilding the bottle:baffled:
