(Videos and pictures are representational only and do not reflect the full design of the lift, if you have questions about the features and design please give us a call before placing your order) The Kendon Motorcycle Lift is designed to fold up and stand up out of your way when not in use. Yet, it’s capable of lifting 1,000 lbs. just like the bigger and heavier non-folding lifts. Our bike lifts perform all the same tasks a professional motorcycle lift can do, but they take up a minimal amount of space in your garage so you have more room for bikes, cars and other equipment. The footprint of a Kendon bike lift is only 17 in. x 26 in. so you can always find a spot to store it when you’re not wrenching or cleaning. The lift is roughly the same width as a push broom and will fit right through any standard door without the need to turn it when it’s rolled on the integrated casters. But why would you want to get it through a door? Well, at only 185 lbs. you can easily roll it on it’s casters, throw it in back of your car, truck or SUV and take it to the track, to your buddy’s house, or wherever you need it whenever you need it. And you can actually use it whenever, wherever! The air-over-hydraulic operation lets you actuate the lift using the hand pump or an air compressor.

The Cruiser Bike Lift is perfect for American V-Twin and metric cruiser motorcycles and heavyweight street bikes, including Harley-Davidson, Indian and Goldwing models. With a 1,000-pound capacity this folding motorcycle lift can accommodate almost any bike on the road today. These bike lifts can fit a bike up to 95″ long (measured from the front of the front wheel to the center of back wheel) and have the lifting power to get the job done. We know you like to get close and personal with your bikes, get them running and looking good. We do too, so our motorcycle lifts feature narrow-rail construction so you can get up close to your bike to perform any maintenance work and/or cleaning without having to worry about the lift and bike tipping over as soon as you touch anything. Kendon’s Bike Lifts have a large footprint similar to industrial size motorcycle lifts that provides a stable working environment. No need to worry about bumping into the lift and having it tip over with your bike on top. If you’re looking to simply clean your bike, perform routine maintenance, undertake a complete overhaul, or display your motorcycle at a bike show, our folding motorcycle lifts are the perfect solution. And when you’re done, it stores nicely tucked away in the corner.

What’s new on the latest Folding Motorcycle Lift Model

We’ve changed and added a few features on the latest Kendon folding motorcycle lifts to make them even more versatile and easier to use. Automatic height lock, improved air/hydraulic cylinder and more. We also increased the overall stability and rigidity so that you can safely and confidently use the lift with practically any model bike.

We redesigned the safety bar and height lock so that it automatically engages as the lift is actuated, so you don’t have to worry about something going wrong and your bike crashing down. We made some tricky changes to the air and hydraulic cylinder so you will now have more control over a controlled descent. This means that controlling the descent is much easier so you can lower your bike as quickly or as s-l-o-w-l-y as you want.

Few more minor changes and additions include a safety bar insert to securely disengage the safety bar, adjusted ball joints for improved manual pump actuation, longer release knob, and adjusted air hose retention clips to avoid potential crushing.

Stand-Up™ Bike Lift Features Benefits

Kendon’s bike lifts feature an air-over-hydraulic jack with extruded aluminum housing for improved valving and slow, controlled descent. The lift can be used manually with the included hand lever or using a compressor. A multi-position adjustable folding wheel chock along with a five-position height lock keep your bike securely in place.

Motorcycle Stand Buyers Guide

When looking for a motorcycle stand to keep your bike secure and to perform small maintenance and cleaning projects, there are two main factors to consider before purchasing. Weight capacity and wheel width adjustability are important to ensure your bike will hold securely and firmly to your new motorcycle stand.

Weight Capacity

Looking at the weight capacity of what each bike stand holds is essential to making sure you get a stand that can support the weight of your bike and keep it secure. Each product varies in weight capacity. with some holding up to 3,000.0 lbs., while others hold a few hundred pounds. This is a large range, so knowing the weight of your bike will make it easier to choose a product that will work best for you and your needs.

Adjustability

Most motorcycle stands attach to the wheel, making it important to know the width of your bike wheels. Most chock and swingarm stands have varying widths to accommodate a variety of bike wheels, ranging from sport bikes to dirt bikes. Checking the width of your bike’s wheels with the product details is necessary so you can be sure your bike will fit any motorcycle stand you purchase.

Do You NEED A One-Piece Sports Bike Stand?

I wouldn’t say you need a one-piece, but they’re better; it’s a simple as that. As this guide is focused on covering the best front and rear motorcycle stands there are, I thought I’d make that clear.

There is a problem though, and that’s price. You’ll pay around 2x the amount for a fixed/one-piece, over the cheaper two-piece that come flat packed. Basically, you’re talking about 300-400 for a pair of stands, rather than around 125 or less.

You’ll fall into one of two camps:

  • No expense spared and want the absolute best
  • Will compromise on stability to save cash (I did).

Depending on which camp you fall into you’ll want to flick straight over too:

The Best Motorcycle Stands

Pitbull Stands

If you want front and rear motorcycle stands from Pitbull, don’t expect change from 125. In fact, you’ll struggle to get change from 350 (depending on bike) when buying a pair.

BUT, if you want the absolute best stand on the market, this is where you should be funneling your cash.

Like most motorcycle stand brands, you’ll be able to get a stand suitable for a dual swing arm. However, it makes much more sense to buy a spooled stand, as it will hold your bike much more securely.

If you don’t already have spools, they’re extremely cheap to buy. Generally, you’ll be able to grab spools for your bike for less than 30.

The Truth About Motorcycle Stands | Sportbiketrackgear.com

Pitbull motorcycle stands come with a lifetime warranty, fit most sports bikes and you’ll have the option for a fixed or removable handle. Head for the removable handle if you’ve not got much room to store it when it’s not in use.

Venom Stands

So, you’re on a budget, and want to get front and rear motorcycle stands as cheaply as possible? We’d be heading for Venom.

As you can see from the Venom front and rear motorcycle stands product listing here, they already have over 200 reviews. And, at below 125 per pair, it’s an absolute steal.

Like we mentioned above, these stands are effectively, in two pieces. The fact they are bolted together and aren’t fixed like the Pitbull stands, means they’re going to be less stable.

But, as I also mentioned above, my stand works just fine.

Venom Front Stand

As a cheap pair of front and rear stands, this is about as good as you get, but there are some things worth mentioning, just in case you have a few extra bucks; there are different stands available from Venom.

HOW TO USE MOTORCYCLE REAR STANDS

You’ll notice this Venom front stand holds up your bike from the bottom of your forks.

There’s nothing wrong with that, but another option you have is a pinned stand that fits under the triple clamps; known as a triple tree stand.

Typically, you’ll get more stability there, rather than a front stand that relies on the fork legs.

I found a set from Venom that includes a triple tree stand here. You won’t have to worry about the size pin you need, given it comes with 13mm, 15mm, 16.5mm, 17mm, and 18mm pins as part of the deal.

Venom Rear Stand

Like the Pitbull, you have the option to lift your bike from spools, or from the swinging arm. The preferred option is always going to be spools.

Expect to pay around 30 for spools (bike dependent). You’ll then need a rear motorcycle stand that fits those spools.

bike, lift, rear, stand, look, motorcycle

The ultimate combination is a stand that lifts from the spools on the rear, and the pinned triple tree front stand.

Just to confirm you have these options:

  • Triple tree front (preferable)
  • Front fork leg lift
  • Rear spool lift (preferable)
  • Rear swing arm lift

You can grab our preferred option here, being the triple tree front and rear spool lift. You’ll need the second best option (triple tree front stand, and rear swing arm lift) if you don’t have spools, and don’t want to fit any on your bike.

You’ll pay around 30 more for the preferred pair from Venom, over the cheapest pair they offer. In my opinion, we’ve already saved 200 by not buying Pitball stands, so for extra stability it’s great value for money.

So, Which Motorcycle Stand Is Best?

Basically, it comes down to this…

You want a spool lift stand for the rear, and a triple tree front.

In terms of brands and the products they offer…

Pitbull motorcycle stands are the best – they’re one piece so offer more stability – but they have the price tag to match.

I’d rather have the Pitbull stands. But, for the cash saving and given stands like the Venom ones here work perfectly fine, I’d rather spend that cash saved on my bike.
