I searched but didn't find any threads on motorcycle lifts. I am going to break down and buy one and was wondering if anybody could recommend one.

I am looking for a jack/lift type myself. Is it possible to secure the bike once it is lifted up?

Yeah. They have places around the jack where straps can be run through then up and around the bike. The platform on the PitBull is very large so in many cases the bike doesn't need to be strapped. There is another brand of lift like PitBull, and they don't lift quite as high. I think it is JD or JL or something.

If you are serious about keeping your bike in top shape, look for a used table lift. Talk to anyone who has one and you will hear the same thing: Best thing I ever did! I can recommend "Handy Industries" air lift. Jack

Lift table is great. Not only for working on a bike, but to get bikes into the back of the truck, or onto other tables in the garage.

I got a new Craftsman motorcycle jack on craigslist for $50 a few years back, I don't think they are all that much more in the store. I use it all the time. It's not a table lift, but is small and stores under my workbench. I use it for fairly small bikes- Japanese, Triumphs, and Sportsters, not sure I'd want to lift a large baggger with it though.

I use this same table lift. Picked mine up new for $500 including deliver 4 years ago. It's been a back saver for me.



I use a small Craftsman lift for simple/quick maintenance that needs the wheels off the ground.

Pick up a street chopper mag. Inside you will find a harbour freight coupon to buy a table lift for $299. Or there is a coupon for a slide under lift for $59. Buy the table lift you will thank yourself

I can't say enough good stuff about the Handy Industries table lift. I got mine new 7-8 years ago when the dealer where I was working the parts counter bought several, so I got part of the quantity break.

There was a coupon in the horse last month for the harbor freight lift for 299. Ive had one for a year and it works great. I modified some things on it but who doesn't tinker to make things there own anyway.

Look for a lift with a smooth deck (like a handy) b/c the diamond plate sucks and serves no purpose what so ever except for making it harder to clean.
