Just saw the awesome bike of the day and really liked the scissor lift.

Is anyone using a scissor lift who can provide some feedback? Brand, price, durability, etc?

I see pit posse has one for sale here:

I will never work on my bike without one. Every garage should have one.

+1 !!

I have the Motorsport one and it works like a champ. If you like working on your bike, this thing is a must. I think I paid $250 through RM. I was hesitant about the price, so I put it off until I had enough Frequent Buyer cash to get it. The lift works great, there are 4 settings for height and the the lift clamps down on the foot pegs as you raise it, although the one in the picture above doesn't seem to have that. Look at the springs near the pegs on my bike.

This is my bike at full height, still stable to work on.

love mine. just make sure you use the lock out bar and secure the pegs to the stand. or use a tie down etc. really important if you have little ones around that like to "help" wrench. great bike garage investment. also i put casters on mine,makes it nice to move around.

If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.

@casper please fix your front brake line by the fork guards
It is run incorrectly, suppose to be on the inside of the fork guards, so it does not get caught
sorry its a safety hazard and pet peeve of mine
Sorry to hijack post
Carry on..

20+ years of working on bikes, and I've survived without one of these. Now with a bum knee bothering me, I have found a bit of leverage with the wife to finally order one for our garage. smile

The scissor lifts disappeared from the industry for a while. The co that was importing them went bankrupt according to a rep.

I picked one up at http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Motocross-Lift-Red a couple years ago for the Indy trade show where they have one of several whse. Think it was $50 then so the price has tripled.
