I bought this to replace a aluminum stand that I've had since 2000 but ended up leaving at the track by mistake. Had to get a new one. What I like about this one verses my old is the rounded, smooth corners at bottom. The MSR stand holds my Yam250F up higher off ground by maybe 1.5" to 2" inches so you have to lift bike higher to get onto stand. Can be a slight negative if you crank out a moto then come back to truck and you're exhausted. Has label warning on it that states not to sit on bike while on stand as this can lead to damaging stand. I like to start my bike while on the stand but don't want to risk it bending. I don't know if this will happen or if it's just an extra precaution by manufacturer. Over all I like it and think it's a good value compared to the other similar stands for $100 plus dollars.

The unit is very light weight construction, I lifted a 200# unit and the lower horizontal support bent immediately. I cut it apart and fabricated a heavier base and it works fine.

The perfect tool for the perfect job! This stand makes it so easy to swop wheels. To be able to lift the bike up, makes it so much easier to do maintenance. Stand come with a locking rod, to slide into place. To prevent stand to lower from set height, while working. Stand is very stable at all heights, plus with tension locks. You don't have to worry about the bike coming off the stand, because the tension locks work so well. So save up and get one, you won't be sorry!

This is the stand all the pro team use. I have 3 and they are great. Cool graphics wide base very study and really strong.

Lift does as advertised but lift is unable to hold bike level. Bike when raised tilts to the side. I lift bike from right side to cause it to tilt to the left side where I keep kickstand lowered in the event of tip over. Lift is strong enough to lift.....it just has extra backlash/play in hydraulic cylinder after locked in the raised position. Fix this backlash and it is a solid product through and through.
