Looks like one of my recent 'dual sport' attempts.

It works great, no complaints, but I think you will need a flat bottom skid plate to utilize it. I certainly would not try it with the stock, plastic skid plate.

Sears sells one that is very similar too. I would not be surprised if it is identical (excusing the different color paint).

It makes changing tires/ wheels, and lubing chains WAY easier. It is also nice for getting the bike up a little higher to work on, and saving your back from bending over so much.. Although, I am seriously considering upgrading to a real bike lift soon.
I have the Sears one, and from what I can tell it mainly the same thing in red.

I have the same lift and it's not my favorite. HF has this lift and it works far better. I use it to strip my Super Enduro and it allows me to wheel it all over the shop..



I use it for all kinds of projects

Who make a good license plate mount that won't get ripped off on rough terrain? The stock one sort of sucks and I'm tired of trying to keep up with lost plates!

I just use zap straps, they allow for some shock absorption, and more mounting options :-)

I saw this a few days ago and thought it was worthy enough to snap a photo.

Thankyou

Nothing like having the lead on a ride waiting, with camera in hand on tight corners, in the off-chance that someone (usually me on this ride as I was generally second) will fail to take the corner.
This corner I just over-cooked the corner a little as I was having fun.
